Subject Problem querying vertical inheritance
Date Mon, 07 Nov 2011 13:47:03 GMT
Hi all,

I've used Cayenne on few projects, and I'm now attempting to use inheritance for the first
time. Whilst the current scope is fairly limited, I'm expecting that the inheritance tree
will grow considerably in the future and thus am trying to use some amount of vertical inheritance
for sub-types where I'm expecting a significant amount of additional data.

Creating new objects works fine - the discriminator column in the primary table is set correctly,
and rows are added to the correct secondary tables. Trying to do a select on the root abstract
object, however, returns nothing - it appears to be doing a JOIN against all of the secondary
tables, which fails as no object has an entry in more than one of those table (I would expect
a LEFT JOIN instead).

I include a minimal example below. If somebody could point out what where I'm going wrong
or what I'm misunderstanding, that would be much appreciated.


Environment: Cayenne 3.0.2, MySQL 5.0.77. XML, classes and schema generated from the modeler.

Data map:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<data-map xmlns="http://cayenne.apache.org/schema/3.0/modelMap"
  xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"

	<db-entity name="ITEM">
		<db-attribute name="ID" type="INTEGER" isPrimaryKey="true" isMandatory="true"/>
		<db-attribute name="TYPE" type="CHAR" isMandatory="true" length="1"/>
	</db-entity>
	<db-entity name="ITEM_BAR">
		<db-attribute name="BAR" type="VARCHAR" isMandatory="true" length="255"/>
		<db-attribute name="ID" type="INTEGER" isPrimaryKey="true" isMandatory="true"/>
	</db-entity>
	<db-entity name="ITEM_FOO">

		<obj-attribute name="foo" type="java.lang.String" db-attribute-path="ITEM_FOO.FOO"/>
	</obj-entity>
	<obj-entity name="Item" abstract="true" className="org.example.test.Item" dbEntityName="ITEM">
		<obj-attribute name="type" type="java.lang.String" db-attribute-path="TYPE"/>
	</obj-entity>
	<db-relationship name="ITEM_BAR" source="ITEM" target="ITEM_BAR" toDependentPK="true"
toMany="false">
		<db-attribute-pair source="ID" target="ID"/>
	</db-relationship>
	<db-relationship name="ITEM_FOO" source="ITEM" target="ITEM_FOO" toDependentPK="true"
toMany="false">
		<db-attribute-pair source="ID" target="ID"/>
	</db-relationship>
	<db-relationship name="ITEM" source="ITEM_BAR" target="ITEM" toMany="false">
		<db-attribute-pair source="ID" target="ID"/>
	</db-relationship>
	<db-relationship name="ITEM" source="ITEM_FOO" target="ITEM" toMany="false">
		<db-attribute-pair source="ID" target="ID"/>
	</db-relationship>
</data-map>

Test Code:

	ObjectContext context = DataContext.createDataContext();

	FooItem foo = context.newObject(FooItem.class);
	foo.setFoo("Foo");
	BarItem bar = context.newObject(BarItem.class);
	bar.setBar("Bar");
	context.commitChanges();

	SelectQuery select = new SelectQuery(Item.class);
	List<Item> items = context.performQuery(select);
	select = new SelectQuery(FooItem.class);
	items = context.performQuery(select);
	select = new SelectQuery(BarItem.class);
	items = context.performQuery(select);
