Subject [jira] [Created] (CAY-2030) @PostCommit and capturing a stream of commit changes
Date Tue, 22 Sep 2015 19:47:04 GMT
Andrus Adamchik created CAY-2030:

             Summary: @PostCommit and capturing a stream of commit changes
                 Key: CAY-2030
             Project: Cayenne
          Issue Type: Task
            Reporter: Andrus Adamchik
            Assignee: Andrus Adamchik

Per trying to implement a
proper transaction audit. After some thought, I think it should work as follows:

0. ObjectChangeSet - an object that captures all changes for a single ObjectId (including
the change of ID itself)

1. ChangeCaptureFilter : A filter that captures all changes before and after the commit (including
generated PKs returned from DB) and stores them in a map of <ObjectId,ObjectChangeSet>.
Will notify the listeners after the commit. 

2. A Module that registers the filter (once  CAY-2028 is done, the module should also take
care of ordering the filter to go inside transaction).

3. Listener annotation: 


4. Listeners will be registered same way as other Cayenne listeners,a dn will currently take
the entire change set of the commit. Listener method format:

// grab changes as change objects
void postCommit(Map<ObjectId, ObjectChangeSet>)

// grab changes as JSON
void postCommit(Map<ObjectId, String>)

In the second case (a map of Strings), Cayenne will perform JSON serialization (serializer
will be DI managed, so the format is configurable). Otherwise the user will get a Map of ObjectChangeSet
change objects.

For now there is no per-entity filtering, and the whole batch of audit data is generated and
passed to the listener. It can do its own filtering of course.

(since most people would want to run this filter within a TX, an effective usage of this is
dependent on CAY-2028; however the implementation is not)
