Subject Re: How to use RelationshipQuery?
Date Fri, 13 Oct 2006 13:58:05 GMT
Hi Arturo,

Not quite sure what problem you are trying to solve, but I can  
comment on RelationshipQuery. RelationshipQuery is used by Cayenne  
internally to resolve relationships. Applications rarely create it  
directly, but there is no problem if you do:

Ignore the EntityResolver methods, as those are just callbacks that  
are invoked by Cayenne when the query is executed. Just for the  
reference, EntityResolver is a logical analog of EOF EOModelGroup -  
it provides a single combined namespace for mapping metadata and is  
accessible via ObjectContext|DataContext.getEntityResolver().
