If you add any additional column to a many-to-many join table
it is automatically promoted to entity
and a new class is generated and mapped to it. This is necessary in order to give you access to the additional attributes
in the table.
Unfortunately this means that you have to do one additional hop when traversing the graph as opposed to the normal many-to-many mapping
Getting back to you question - no there is no way to combine the join table and the new entity
If you need assistance implementing navigation between graph of entities connected that way do not hesitate to contact us.
