Subject Re: [jira] [Updated] (CAY-1834) Exception: ToManyList cannot be cast to DataObject
Date Sun, 04 Aug 2013 19:11:34 GMT
So, trunk is finally free from "runtime" ObjRelationships. I kept runtime DbRelationships for
now as I don't envision those giving us trouble due to them being based on the same join pairs.
And having a graph of DbEntities fully traversable in both directions is kind of important.


The tricky part was to keep one-way to-many working. So I ended up implementing it differently
- via graph change tracking instead of runtime relationships that created hidden object properties
(see CAY-1861 commits). This code touches on a few non-trial parts of runtime, so I hope I
didn't break anything. So appreciate feedback from early adopters.
