Subject delete on m:n-link-table during INSERT
Date Fri, 01 Oct 2004 11:07:18 GMT

recently, Mariusz W├│jcik [mailto:wojcikm@okno.pw.edu.pl] pointed out in
the Users' list that whenever an Object that has an empty 
m:n-mapped collection is inserted, the corresponding entries in the 
link-table are deleted.
The code is in PersistenceBrokerImpl.storeAndLinkMtoN(), see below.

I find this very annoying.  Typically, there won't be any objects 
to delete during insert, unless the new primary key had previously 
been used as a foreign key in the link-table.  I bet this chiefly happens
druing testing, but not in real-life applications.

I propose to change this in 1.1.  There could be a configuration switch 
(say, in the collection-descriptor) to get the old behaviour, but the
should be NOT to delete during insert.

What do you think?


if (insert || ...)
  // if referenced objects are null, assign empty list
  if(referencedObjects == null)
      referencedObjects = Collections.EMPTY_LIST;
  // ...
  Iterator referencedObjectsIterator =
      mtoNBroker.deleteMtoNImplementor(cod, obj);
