Hi Daniel,

Yes, post load callback should be invoked as advertised. I never personally tried it from
a commit catch block, but it should work. Do you have a code sample? Maybe there is a scenario
that we do not handle.

The original callbacks were taken from the JPA spec that doesn't specify postRollback. We've
already diverged from JPA by adding PostAdd. I think we might go further to better reflect
Cayenne object lifecycle. So I am open to adding PostRollback in the future (need to think
it through though)…
