Subject [jira] Commented: (OPENJPA-125) OpenJPA-specific metadata cannot be specified in XML descriptors
Date Wed, 21 Feb 2007 22:02:05 GMT


Evan Ireland commented on OPENJPA-125:

I would recommend an XML schema that permits properties (e.g. sets of name/value pairs)
to be specified at the level of entity classes, persistent fields, and named queries, e.g.

<entity class="com.example.MyEntity">
  <property name="sybase.SpecialEntityProperty" value="..."/>
  <field name="myPersistentField">
    <property name="sybase.SpecialFieldProperty" value="..."/>
  <query name="myNamedQuery">
    <property name="sybase.SpecialQueryProperty" value="..."/>

I would suggest keeping the schema this simple. We have found that properties at these
three levels to be more than adequate for vendor-specific customization of O/R mapping.

> OpenJPA includes a number of annotations that extend the behavior of the JPA specification.
Currently, these annotations cannot be specified in an XML descriptor. We must create an XSD
that allows XML-based configuration of these settings.
> Additionally, to address OPENJPA-87, we should come up with a good story for when only
spec-level XML is used and OpenJPA annotations are also used. Currently, as reported in OPENJPA-87,
such a configuration causes us to ignore the OpenJPA annotations.
