Subject [jira] Commented: (JDO-591) Enhancer Invocation API
Date Tue, 16 Dec 2008 17:42:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JDO-591?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12657084#action_12657084

Andy Jefferson commented on JDO-591:

What bearing does "subdirectories" have on the input from addPersistenceUnit(), or addClass()
? nothing IMHO, hence why I suggest it is separate. A persistence-unit is not a file, neither
is what is input into addClass(). 
Classes and mappingfiles *can* be files (though the "classes" may not be, instead could be
some resource in the classpath) so potentially could be impacted by some subdirectories flag
- one way would be :-
addClass(String, byte[]);
addMappingFiles(boolean subdirs, String... filenames);
addClassFiles(boolean subdirs, String filenames);
addClasses(String... classnames);
or you merge the addMappingFiles/addClassFiles into addFiles().

WRT "add(String[] ...)" how does the impl know if it is a persistence-unit, or a mapping file,
or a class file, or a wildcard, or a directory name, or some random junk ? the impl has to
spend its time traversing "persistence.xml", and directories and files, and open them and
see whats inside? No I don't like that, sorry.

Presumably there needs to be 
addExtension(String option);
to comply with what is discussed in JDO-621.

>             Project: JDO
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: api2
>            Reporter: Andy Jefferson
>            Assignee: Andy Jefferson
>             Fix For: JDO 2 maintenance release 3
>         Attachments: jdoenhancer-5.patch
> Having a standard interface to invoke the enhancer makes a lot of sense so we can have
interchangeability of enhancers (for implementations that support BinaryCompatibility). 
> A start point (for discussions) could be
> java -cp classpath  {enhancer-class} [options] [jdo-files] [class-files]
>     where options can be
>         -persistenceUnit persistence-unit-name : Name of a "persistence-unit" to enhance
the classes for
>         -d target-dir-name : Write the enhanced classes to the specified directory
>         -checkonly : Just check the classes for enhancement status
>         -v : verbose output
> This then allows enhancement of the specified classes, or the classes defined by the
specified JDO files, or the classes defined by the specified persistence-unit.
> What other control would people like to see ?
