Subject [jira] Commented: (JDO-617) JDOQL : Bulk Update and Delete Operations
Date Tue, 02 Dec 2008 11:56:46 GMT

Christiaan commented on JDO-617:

There has been a (small) discussion on the UPDATE feature, just including it here as a reference
(though it is probably better to split this issue into 2 separate issues: update & delete):

I definitely like the cascade enhancement on bulk delete. You probably need some control over
what should be cascade deleted so maybe it should be something like this:

DELETE CASCADE<fields> FROM [<candidate-class>] [WHERE <filter>] 

where fields should specify the objects to be deleted if the candidate-class has a field reference

> It would be usefull that the JDO Query Langage could do some UPDATE and DELETE on Persistent
Object like this :
> UPDATE [<candidate-class>] SET item1=<newValue>, item2=<newValue> [WHERE
> The new_value specified for an update operation must be compatible in type with the state-field
> which it is assigned.
> Bulk Update must modify the value of the version column and refresh Level1 and Level2
> DELETE FROM [<candidate-class>] [WHERE <filter>]
> By default Bulk Delete is appy on the specified class and its subclasses and doesn't
do cascade delete.
> A keyword like CASCADE must be set if we want to does a cascade delete : 
> DELETE CASCADE FROM [<candidate-class>] [WHERE <filter>]
