Subject [BUG] Prefetch bug?
Date Fri, 12 Dec 2003 22:00:05 GMT
Hi all,

Andy Malakov reported me a *serious* bug in conjunction with
PB.getCollectionByQuery
PB.getIteratorByQuery

Seems that these method return different result for the same query.
I checked in a modified version of his test cases
...broker.CollectionTest#testOneBookShelfQueryByIterator()
...broker.CollectionTest#testOneBookShelfQueryByCollection()

first one pass, second fail. (metadata in repository_junit_reference.xml)

Below see his original post with detailed description of what is going 
on (attached p6spy output).

Needs to be fixed before rc5!!

regards,
Armin

Hello Armin,

Thanks for submitting that fix.


What troubles me is that I found some problem retrieving collections of
objects that have reference to extent. Problem exists in "CVS HEAD"
and didn't exist in RC4. /Very/ easy to reproduce.

Say, I have class BookShelf that has list of BookShelfItems. There are
several kinds of BookShelfItems: Books, DVDs, etc.


     *public class BookShelf {
         private int pk;
         private List /*of BookShelfItem*/ items;*
     *     ...*
     *}*
     **
     *public abstract class BookShelfItem {
         private int pk;
         private BookShelf shelf;*
     *    ...*
     *}*
     **
     *public class Book extends BookShelfItem {*
     *...*
     *}
     *
     *public class DVD extends BookShelfItem {*
     *...*
     *}*


Now if I create a bookshelf with one book and one DVD, I can load it via
getIteratorByQuery() without any problems:

*b.getIteratorByQuery(new QueryByCriteria (BookShelf.class, new Criteria
()));*

But when I try to use getCollectionByQuery(), I each bookshelf _only has
one item_ (!) [More precisely one kind of items in case of larger number
of items]

*b.getCollectionByQuery(new QueryByCriteria (BookShelf.class, new
Criteria ()));*

After some debugging I found what looks like a problem in

When CollectionPrefetcher.associateBatched(Collection owners, Collection
children) associates bookshelfs with items (at this moment I can see
that both collections contain valid number of items) it have problems
findinf foreign key values in child items.

CollectionPrefetcher, line178 (CVS):
*    for (Iterator it = children.iterator(); it.hasNext(); )
     {
        relatedObject = it.next(); // child item
        fkValues = cds.getForeignKeyValues(relatedObject, cld);*


Problem is caused by the fact that *getForeignKeyValues* [in case of
reference to base class]  will search for foreign keys *only in class
descriptor of first concrete class* (!).

ObjectReferenceDescriptor, line 143 (CVS):

*     Class firstConcreteClass = (Class) extents.get(0);
      mif =
getClassDescriptor().getRepository().getDescriptorFor(firstConcreteClass);
*

I have the above example as simple JUnit test case (attached). Let me
know  - I will be happy to provide any additional information.

I can also submit a bugreport into Scarab.

Thanks a lot,
Andy
