Subject Re: Rename property PersistenceUnitName to Name
Date Wed, 06 Jun 2007 04:23:42 GMT
While I kind of see your point (but not fully yet), I don't think this is something that we
should standardize, given that yours is the only implementation that I've encountered with
this funtionality.  Thoughts?  Can you expound on its use, please?

That sounds good.

I would like again to introduce the idea that we also add such a name 
property to the
PersistenceManager and that we add a getPersistenceManagerByName(String 
to the PersistenceManagerFactory.
