Subject [jira] [Closed] (CAY-2140) An option to explicitly turn off PK generation
Date Tue, 15 Nov 2016 08:07:58 GMT


Alexei Grigoriev closed CAY-2140.
    Resolution: Not A Problem

Have a second thought. We should use better visualisation of relationships to resolve this

> There are cases when PK generation should be turned off explicitly. 
> For example when implementing many-to-many relation manually I want an intermediate entity
with keys propagated from other entities.
> Cayenne does it implicitly. In such case Cayenne propagates keys from related entities
and silently ignores pk_generation setting. This approach looks confusing. And it is not easy
to find out what is wrong with model when Cayenne reports errors.
> I propose to introduce a new pk_generation_strategy for 'no generation' and a validation
requiring no generation if to_dep_pk on related entity is set.
