Subject [jira] Commented: (JDO-607) Require no-args constructor for PMF implementations and add static methods to PMF interface
Date Sun, 14 Sep 2008 18:39:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JDO-607?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12630899#action_12630899

Craig Russell commented on JDO-607:
-----------------------------------

I've reverted this change.

I've looked in the Java language specification for the reason the compiler complains and can't
find anything. We did a very similar thing with the JDOHelper in which the user can either
use the helper methods statically or via an instance. The difference seems to be that JDOHelper
is a class that doesn't implement an interface. Any pointers to the language spec section
disallowing this would be appreciated.

Moving on, we have a choice: either declare a new interface that is referenced by the services
file, e.g. PersistenceManagerFactoryService that declares these two methods as non-static,
or declare two new methods that are non-static, e.g. createPersistenceManagerFactory(Map)
and createtPersistenceManagerFactory(Map, Map).

> In order to use Java 6 ServiceLoader to instantiate PMF, the class needs to implement
a no-args constructor, and the PMF interface needs to define the methods that are currently
static (and therefore not defined in the interface).
