Subject Re: removeToManyTarget and delete from ObjectContext
Date Wed, 22 Jun 2016 13:50:12 GMT
Hi Lon,

Removing an object doesn't do a delete.  You also have to do a
context.deleteObject(..) if you want to delete it.  The reason is so that
you can do something like this:

order = // some existing order

This allows you to shuffle objects around to different relationships, which
will update the foreign keys (as you've seen).

If you are wanting cascade deletes (or a few other delete actions), don't
look at the "To Dep PK" setting in DbEntity Relationships (which happens on
insert/new objects), look at "Delete Rule" in the ObjEntity Relationships
settings.  These delete rules are used when you actually do a
context.deleteObject(..) and context.commitChanges().
