[hibernate-dev] Question regarding the JPA 1.0 decision of making ToOne associations as EAGER

But to me that is not a reason EAGER is the default. As the passage says,
LAZY is just a hint. So for a provider that does not support LAZY, EAGER
would be used instead anyway. No, some of the EG members specifically
argued for wanting to-one associations to be EAGER by default. IMO it was
a bad decision. But the majority rule.
