Subject Confusion about entities and documents
Date Fri, 22 Oct 2010 17:20:20 GMT
Hi all-

I've been checking the online docs about this, but I haven't found a suitable explanation
about how entities and sub-entities work within a document. I am loading records from a SQL
database and everything seems to be getting flattened in a way I was not expecting.

For example, I have a document that defines, say, "engine". The engine is made up of parts,
which are manufactured by various companies. A hypothetical, abbreviated config would be:

<document name="engines">
        <entity name="engine" query="select id, name, desc from engines">
                <entity name="parts" query = "select part_id, part_name from parts where
engine_id = ${}">
                        <entity name="parts_manu" query="select manu_name from manufacturer
where id = ${parts.part_id}">

What I get when I search for, say, "XYZ", is a document that has XYZ Corp as a manufacturer
name, but the array of parts_manu appears to be a child of the document, not the parts array.

Is this the correct behavior, insofar as a document has a single level of elements, and that's
it? If so, what might be a better strategy for being able to maintain the hierarchy of information
within a document?

Thanks for any info,
