Subject [jira] [Commented] (JDO-678) Ability to set properties on PersistenceManager

Andy Jefferson commented on JDO-678:
------------------------------------

Hi Craig,

DataNucleus has, for a very long time, supported persistence property names case-insensitive,
due to users having hard-to-spot problems where they mistook the cAmElCaSE sensitivity of
JDO property names and got unexpected results. As a result what 3.1.x was/is doing is just
returning the lowercase form that the property name is stored internally in. SVN trunk (3.2.x)
now returns case-sensitive names from PM.getSupportedProperties() so ought to pass any such
test. No plans to backdate this change to 3.1.x. Suggest you try with current nightly builds
(3.2.0-m4-SNAPSHOT) of "datanucleus-core", "datanucleus-api-jdo" and "datanucleus-rdbms" (no
datanucleus-enhancer or ASM needed in v3.2)

What would be a sensible move for user-friendliness (beyond the scope of this JIRA and this
release of JDO) would be for JDO to accept case-insensitive properties. After all, is it envisaged
that there will eventually be different semantics for "javax.jdo.option.Multithreaded" and
"javax.jdo.option.multithreaded" ?

> It would be desirable to be able to set properties on the PersistenceManager, so as to
be able to configure/change behaviour for a PM. Currently the PM is generated with particular
configuration (from the PMF) and allows specific options to be set. But what about vendor
extensions ? Having a general setProperty/getProperty/getSupportedProperties would be useful,
and could also encompass the existing detachAllOnCommit, IgnoreCache, etc settings.
