Subject Re: Bug when doing joint prefetching on a to-many relationship using a fetch limit?
Date Fri, 31 Mar 2017 10:03:55 GMT
Hi Andrus, sorry about the belated reply.

>> Hi all.
>> I’m getting some unexpected behaviour when applying a fetch limit and doing joint
prefetching on a to-many relationship. In short, the number of objects returned is always
lower than the actual fetch limit I set. Problem goes away if I do a disjoint prefetch or
no prefetching at all.

Maybe Cayenne should throw an exception (or log a warning) if prefetch semantics other than
Disjoint-by-ID is used with a fetch limit? This is something I can see users burning themselves
on (I know I did).
