Subject Re: Transaction Best Practices
Date Sat, 01 Oct 2005 05:22:47 GMT
Question: which DataSource (i.e. connection pool) are you using?

There's no need to explicitly open/close transactions for queries.

It all looks good. One thing I will suggest is to guarantee that daoManager
can never be null...that will avoid the "if (daoManager != null)"
part...it's unecessary code.

And unless you're doing something really strange, you might as well just
make the DAOs private members of the class too...initialize them in the
constructor (this also makes unit testing easier, because you can inject
mock DAOs if necessary).

So far my recommendations are stylistic, but they will reduce the amount of
boilerplate code you're writing, and perhaps help you to find the one place
you're not calling endTransaction (or perhaps the one place that "!= null"
is written "== null" or something.

The end result would look something like this:

private final DaoManager daoManager;
private final CompanyDao companyDao;

public SomeConstructor () {
daoManager = DaoHelper.getDaoManager();
companyDao = (CompanyDao) daoManager.getDao(CompanyDao.class);
}

public static void updateCompany (Company company)
throws IVRPasswordException {
try {
daoManager.startTransaction();
companyDao.updateCompany( company );
daoManager.commitTransaction();
} catch (Exception e) {
throw new IVRPasswordException(e);
} finally {
daoManager.endTransaction();
}
}
