I can't find our most recent documentation on this, but it used to
happen automatically with supported databases.

I have a Cayenne 1.1 system that I maintain which uses Oracle, and
while it may have to fail on two or three queries because of the cycle
of errors returned from an Oracle database when the connection is
lost, it does recover after about three queries.

You will have to write your own code to handle what to do during the
failed queries.   A disconnect-related error should come back as a
CayenneRuntimeException.    When you handle it, you will need to
determine if it's a a lost connection error (it probably could be
assumed to be once you're in production) and then return a different
set of queries.   I haven't tried to do this, so I can't tell you the
best way to pull the objects out of a cache.
