Subject Re: IBatis 2.3 lazy loading issue for return null instead of an list
Date Tue, 12 Aug 2008 10:42:22 GMT
AFAIK the root of the problem is that when iBatis handles resultset of left
joining master table with child table the child table columns may be all
NULL and it's not quite clear whether child table indeed contained
corresponding row with NULL elements or there was no result found in the
child table. Hence it adds a single element (with NULL values) to the list.
So i think it's not lazy loading issue at all.

Hence in such situations I add a check in my DAO layer and discard the child
list if it contains single element with all NULL values. Wish iBatis could
handle this for me through, say, some boolean flag 'discardNullChildLists'.
