Subject Re: Deep copy object graph
Date Tue, 14 Mar 2017 04:31:16 GMT
Thanks Kevin,
I guess I was looking for something like deep clone using serialization rather than detach-clone-persist
and so on through the object graph. Being lazy ;)

 Hi David,

Did you find a solution?

Just a question: Why would you not use a standard service action to 
create the copy? Is there any reason why you want Datanucleus to do it?

Personally, I would try and use a service that creates a copy of the 
current records and updates the public reference instance to always 
point to the latest (perhaps use a Proxy, for example - and another 
administrative view that displays the full set of changes over time).
