Jira issue originally created by user jldell:
In the Mapping when defining a ManyToMany Bi-Directional Association the inversedBy is required on the owning side. Without a joinTable defined, the inversedBy attribute is never read. The joinTable attribute should not be required if using the Mapping Defaults.
A quick glance at the code showed this in Annotations/XML/YML mappings
