Subject Re: Update timeout?
Date Mon, 16 Nov 2009 18:55:56 GMT
Hi Jörg,

This is a timely comment. We're just finalizing the query timeout  
issue and we should take care of this item as well for the 2.3 release.

It's possible that we could use the same query timeout value that we  
set on the PersistenceManagerFactory and PersistenceManager to apply  
to both queries and updates/deletes. This would minimize the API  
"footprint" with no loss of expressiveness.

So let's discuss the scope of the query timeout possibly to apply to  
delete and update operations as well.

I agree that it's currently not possible to get access to the  
Statement that is being executed so you can set the timeout in the  
application. It has to be a JDO setting.
