Subject Re: Relationships Not Propagated
Date Thu, 17 Sep 2009 14:05:09 GMT
When you create a brand new ObjEntity from a DBEntity, it propagates
all attributes and relationships defined in the DBEntity except for
the primary key (Cayenne Modeler assumes you don't need that exposed).
 Once you've created the ObjEntity, though, adding a new relationship
to the DBEntity will not be automatically synced to the ObjEntity.
You have to sync it manually (click the double-arrow icon in either
the DBEntity or ObjEntity toolbar or use the Project menu or keyboard
shortcut).  I'm talking mainly about 3.0M6 since I no longer use the
2.x modeler and don't remember the exact specifics of how it behaves.
