Subject RE: Updating DataMap through ROP client
Date Tue, 17 Feb 2009 18:29:32 GMT
The ROP server is controlled by an instance of HessianServlet. I have
tried to run Configuration.getSharedConfiguration() to get the map from
the server and then clear the EntityResolver that way but it seems like
the HessianServlet has its own version of the Configuration instance
therefore its EntityResolver does not get cleared. The reason I must
modify the Maps from the ROP client is that our application is
distributed over the Web and has an MDA modeling component that allows
our business users to modify the application at runtime. By doing so,
they can create new tables or modify existing tables. Once they have
finished modeling, they need the capability to synchronize Cayenne with
the new models right from their ROP client in order for everyone else to
use the changes. The client application must work through firewalls and
HTTP proxies so I am forced to code everything in the ROP client layer.
If I knew how to get access to HessianServlet's instance of the
Configuration instance on the server side I could clear the
EntityResolver and everything would work perfectly.

The most common case to fetch Configuration instance in server is via
Configuration.getSharedConfiguration(). But I still don't understand why
you
don't want to apply all changes on server side. This way, in theory, no
reloading will be required on server (except cache cleaning).
