I suspect that Cayenne child nested contexts are not what you want to be using there. You
probably just want another plain vanilla context, but once you commit you might want to copy
any objects you just committed into the "parent" context (if they are referred to there).

I can see that your code is going to get very messy if the "parent" object is new and not
yet committed to the database, but you open the popup and want to commit those to the database
with a join to the parent. Ugh.
