Subject @SortWeight annotation
Date Thu, 24 Mar 2011 18:00:03 GMT
Here is an algorithm analysis task for graph-theory-minded folks. I came up with the @SortWeight
solution below for a very specific problem when commit operation ordering can not be derived
from the cross-entity relationships in the DataMap. Now I wondering how many other cases raised
on this list that are not addressed by the default AshwoodEntitySorter can be solved by manually
overriding entities ordering "weight"?

E.g. per CAY-1547 we support UuidRelationships, but saving an object with a UuidRelationship
to another object does not generate correct ordering. So we may want to override default ordering
for entities annotated with @UuidRelationship. E.g.:

It is somewhat of a hack. So it will be placed in cayenne-lifecycle and treated as an "extension".
