Subject Re: flattened relationship updating
Date Fri, 17 Nov 2006 13:45:16 GMT
I've not flattened relationships in Cayenne yet, but this could be a
bug/glitch (or a design choice).  I went looking and saw this note in
the docs: Most of flattened relationships are treated as read-only by
Cayenne.  I just tried creating one in my test model, too, and the
modeler shows it as read-only, so this really might be a design

I remember EOF having a similar problem (not sure if the newest EOF
still does).  What we would do in EOF to work around the issue is to
write cover method code ourselves to manually flatten the
relationships.  This seemed to work pretty well and probably would in
Cayenne, too.  In your, try writing a getPaintings()
