Spring + Hibernate : a different object with the same identifier value was already associated with the session

In my application, which uses Spring and Hibernate, I parse a CSV file and populate the db by calling

handleRow()
every time a record is read from the CSV file.

My domain model:


'Family' has many 'SubFamily'

'SubFamily' has many 'Locus'

a 'Locus' belongs to a 'Species'


Family <-> SubFamily <-> Locus
are all bi-directional mappings.

Code:

public void handleRow(Family dummyFamily, SubFamily dummySubFamily, Locus dummyLocus) {
//Service method which access DAO layers
CommonService serv = ctx.getCommonService();

boolean newFamily=false;
Family family=serv.getFamilyByFamilyId(dummyFamily.getFamilyId());
if(family==null){
newFamily=true;
family=new Family();
family.setFamilyId(dummyFamily.getFamilyId());
family.setFamilyIPRId(dummyFamily.getFamilyIPRId());
family.setFamilyName(dummyFamily.getFamilyName());
family.setFamilyPattern(dummyFamily.getFamilyPattern());
family.setRifID(dummyFamily.getRifID());
}

SubFamily subFamily = family.getSubFamilyBySubFamilyId( dummySubFamily.getSubFamilyId() );
if(subFamily==null){
subFamily=new SubFamily();
subFamily.setRifID(dummySubFamily.getRifID());
subFamily.setSubFamilyId(dummySubFamily.getSubFamilyId());
subFamily.setSubFamilyIPRId(dummySubFamily.getSubFamilyIPRId());
subFamily.setSubFamilyName(dummySubFamily.getSubFamilyName());
subFamily.setSubFamilyPattern(dummySubFamily.getSubFamilyPattern());

family.addSubFamily(subFamily);
}

//use the save reference, to update from GFF handler
Locus locus = dummyLocus;

subFamily.addLocus(locus);

assignSpecies(serv,locus);
//Persist object
if(newFamily){
serv.createFamily(family);
} else {
serv.updateFamily(family);
}
}


a Species is assigned to a Locus using following method, which simply accesses the DAO layer:

private void assignSpecies (CommonService serv, Locus locus) {
String locusId = locus.getLocusId();
String speciesId = CommonUtils.getLocusSpecies(locusId, ctx.getSpeciesList()).getSpeciesId();
//Simply get Species object from DAO
Species sp = serv.getSpeciesBySpeciesId(speciesId);
locus.setSpecies(sp);
}


Hibernate gives following error:

Any tips?

Answer

Use merge(). The exception means that the current session is already aware of the entity you are passing. If not, check how you have overridden hashCode() and equals() - it should return different values for different entities.
