Subject [jira] Commented: (CAY-1080) Support for copy/paste of entities/attributes/relationships
Date Fri, 12 Sep 2008 20:41:11 GMT


Kevin Menard commented on CAY-1080:

1) I don't see anything wrong with the changes to the core classes per se.  I'm just wondering
if the changes are necessary due to an oversight or due to a deliberate omission.  I suppose
it doesn't matter much.

2) Great.

3) There are no exceptions.  I simply can't paste ObjEntities anywhere.  I've tried cutting
from one Datamap and pasting to that same Datamap.  I've also tried from one Datamap to another
Datamap.  In both cases, the paste options remains disabled and the accelerator keys do nothing.

Perhaps something is missing from the patch?

4) You're probably right w.r.t. the fonts.  I'll have to look into that some more.

Also, now that I have the images, there's no need to submit the patches as a ZIP.  Feel free
to use the simpler diff format.

> Some of my ideas follow. 
> We can implement copy-paste in two ways.
> First: the buffer is valid only within a sole project. So when you open another project,
copied data is lost.
> Second, the buffer is stored in whole modeler application, or even system buffer. This
allows to copy data between different projects, but is more complex because we need to create
shallow copies of entities, attrs etc. Personally I use only one cayenne.xml currently.
