Subject Minutes: JDO TCK Conference Call Friday, Apr 22, 9 am Pacific Time
Date Fri, 22 Apr 2011 17:37:31 GMT
NOTE: There will be no meeting next week, April 29 2011

Attendees: Michelle Caisse, Michael Bouschen, Craig Russell


1. Typesafe queries for JDOQL - discussion.  https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JDO-652

Annotation tool DataNucleus bug filed and fixed.

What dependencies are introduced by the annotation processor? The "Q"  
classes generated by DataNucleus extend PersistableExpressionImpl.  
There would need to be an equivalent JDO standard class to extend. The  
candidate() method would need to return an implementation-specific  
instance that implements a JDO standard interface.

Michael has modified the tck project to be able to test the new query  
feature. AI Michael send a patch so we can see how to do it.

Ideally, the typesafe query could be created by the pmf and only bound  
to the pm when it needs to become stateful (range, parameters,  
timeout). But this would mean that there needs to be another method to  
create a bound query from a query definition, which might be awkward  
(not as easy to use).

Is the current Query really stateless? What about range, timeout, and  
read-only? These are state of the query instance. You might consider  
read-only to be part of the query definition but it's hard to not  
think of range and timeout along with query parameters as anything but  

The current Query was created long before annotations, generics,  
autoboxing, and variable parameters. Some of its core architecture  
looks a bit old without these features. But there are many good things  
about it as well that we should try to incorporate into the typesafe  
query pattern.

2.  Other issues

It looks like there is substantial work remaining on query. Should we  
look at making a release 3.1 and query for 3.2?

The tck doesn't work with Michelle's Windows 7 machine. Holding up the  
exectck maven2 checkin.
