Hi Shikha,


I think the best way to achieve this is to have the objects that are in the external entity, copied to a local non-persistent entity and map with the reference selector to this non-persistent entity.


like: retrieve from external entity, and commit that list in you local non-persistent entity.


This way you keep the data persistent in the external database, but you enable your user to select them locally.


I hope this wil work for you. Good luck,
