Subject Re: Multithreaded application trouble with contexts

Hi Richard,
When to commit is really dependent upon the application, but a general
guide would be whenever your object graph is in a state that you want
to commit the changes.  Cayenne's DataContext (and supporting stack)
is thread-safe in that an application can have numerous DataContexts
doing queries and commits, but you shouldn't have multiple threads
sharing a DataContext without some kind of thread-safe controls over

It sounds like your crawler needs to commit the URLs every time it
adds one, but even then I could see a situation where multiple threads
could insert the same URL.  Creating a thread-safe singleton that used
a single DataContext might be the best approach for you.  The
singleton would have addURL() type methods and those would manipulate
the DataContext in a thread-safe way and ensure no duplicates.
