Subject Re: Cayenne commit never modified columns
Date Fri, 07 Oct 2011 15:06:30 GMT

     Answer to myself : this was a threading issue ! I separated the 
commits in a different context and everything works fine. Don't udpate 
and commit at the same time in a context, as the Cayenne documentation 
state, the ObjectContext is not thread safe so you have to take care of 
synchronization yourself !
