Subject Re: Cayenne 3.0M4 ignoring extended data types
Date Fri, 01 Aug 2008 17:29:27 GMT
I've been looking around, stepping through the code execution, trying to
find where Cayenne goes digging into the ExtendedTypeMap, and to see if that
step gets omitted when dealing with referenced tables. I'm still looking,
but I did find one odd thing so far:

In org.apache.cayenne.access.jdbc.ColumnDescriptor, the javaClass for the
column with the extended type is null. It should most definitely be
java.util.UUID as evidenced by the entry in the XML file. No other column
(at least none that I've looked at) has a null for the javaClass. Is this
normal, or a symptom of the type of problem that exists?
