[P-279 of EJB3 In Action] states:
"Note that the exact @JoinColumn vspecification could have been repeated for both the Bid.item and Item.bids persistent fields on
either side of the relationship."

[P-280 of EJB3 In Action] states:
"The persistence provider will generate deployment-time errors if you specify @JoinColumn on both sides of a bidirectional one-tomany
relationship."

Aren;t these 2 statements contradictory?
