Write-only properties possible?

Hello Hibernate-People,

I have some properties in a class which should be written (inserted/updated) into the database but not read and set in the entity. The class has get methods for this properties but no set methods. When I read the documentation there are property options like generated, read, write, insert, update, formula. But there is no option like write-only.

Currently I implemented private set methods with an empty implementation for this kind of properties. This is off course not a very clean an good approach.

Is there a way to implement this correctly?

Kind regards
Thomas Mayr
