Subject [jira] Created: (OJB-105) Pluggable "null" definition for persistent fields
Date Wed, 05 Apr 2006 08:28:46 GMT
Pluggable "null" definition for persistent fields

         Key: OJB-105
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OJB-105
     Project: OJB
        Type: New Feature

  Components: PB-API  
    Versions: 1.0.4    
    Reporter: Martin Kalén
 Assigned to: Martin Kalén 
    Priority: Minor

OJB 1.0.4 has an unflexible way of checking for "null" values, in particular in primary-/foreign-key
fields, that is located in BrokerHelper. For certain use-cases it must be possible to plug
in your own definition of "null", preferrably through the repository XML-mapping on the "field-descriptor"

Example: a table has a single numeric column as primary key, the column is mapped to a "long"
field in Java which is represented internally in OJB as java.lang.Long. Currently one cannot
insert or delte a row in this table where the primary key is 0, since OJB will throw an exception
declaring that all primary key fields must be non-null.

With the possibility to plug in / change to a more relaxed "null" definition on this particular
PK field, it's possible to work with 0 values for the PK in this table.
