Subject Re: Creating a fault for an ObjectId
Date Wed, 15 Feb 2017 15:20:46 GMT
I do this:

dataObject = (DataObject) Cayenne.objectForPK(getObjectContext(), MyEntity.class, oid);

But it will do the fetch if it’s not already in cache.

    Thanks Amadeo, but I ended up creating a method that looks like this. It would be nice
to get some feedback on it, if I’m violating any Cayenne Commandments.

     * @return An existing object or fault if registered with the OC, otherwise creates a
new hollow object based on the given ObjectId.
    public static Persistent faultForObjectId( ObjectContext oc, ObjectId objectId ) {
    Persistent object = (Persistent) oc.getGraphManager().getNode( objectId );

    if( object == null ) {
    ClassDescriptor descriptor = oc.getEntityResolver().getClassDescriptor(objectId.getEntityName());

    object = (Persistent) descriptor.createObject();


    oc.getGraphManager().registerNode(objectId, object);

    return object;
