Subject [jira] Commented: (JDO-345) MethodsAndObjectConstructionNotSupported (A14.6.2-8) should allow getX()
Date Wed, 22 Mar 2006 23:47:14 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JDO-345?page=comments#action_12371488 ] 

Craig Russell commented on JDO-345:

I think a word about why we used the term "mutating method" is in order here. 

The expert group did not want to allow the user and implementation to use query as a back
door to a generalized UPDATE facility, so we said specifically that mutating methods were
not allowed, even in vendor extensions. That said, there are only a small number of standard
mutating methods that return a value, and hence even could be used in a filter.

So I think we are safe in dropping this test and we can debate the value of a new test later
on if someone wants to raise the issue again.

> According to the spec:
>  "Methods, including object construction, are not supported, except for Collection, String,
and Map methods documented below. Implementations might choose to support non-mutating method
calls as non-standard extensions."
> However, MethodsAndObjectConstructionNotSupported expects an exception for method getX().
