Subject [jira] Commented: (OPENJPA-182) db2 update lock syntax WITH <isolation> USE AND KEEP UPDATE LOCKS
Date Thu, 29 Mar 2007 08:15:25 GMT


Patrick Linskey commented on OPENJPA-182:

Wow... that's a lot more DB2 locking knowledge than I've ever seen in one place. Neat.

Some comments on the patch:

1. How does the openjpa.hint.updateClause hint differ from the value of the forUpdate flag
passed in to the DBDictionary call? It looks like the existing OpenJPA per-transaction read
/ write lock level configuration could be used instead.

2. Is openjpa.hint.isolationLevel really a hint, or more of a rule? Again, I have a hunch
that maybe we could do something with the read / write lock levels, or maybe some other means
of controlling isolation level. In any event, it seems like isolation level isn't really a
hint, but rather is more of a rule.

3. You introduced a number of public boolean fields for determining what type of DB2 instance
is being used. Based on code inspection, it looks like you expect that it should always be
possible to automatically determine the type; maybe these should be private fields instead?
We only have public fields in DBDictionaries for user-configurable settings. Also, since it
looks like only one of the booleans can meaningfully be true, I'd rather see a single private
db2ServerType field that will be set to one of several symbolic constant values. This will
let you replace the if-else block with a switch block if you prefer that sort of thing, also.

> A while back we changed the syntax of update locking from FOR UPDATE OF  to  WITH RS
USE AND KEEP UPDATE LOCKS.   Additional changes are required because 
> 1.  if isolation=serializable is configured, then the syntax should be  WITH RR USE AND
> 2.  when using DB2/400 on iSeries machines, the syntax is WITH RS USE AND KEEP EXCLUSIVE
LOCKS  or WITH RR USE AND KEEP EXCLUSIVE LOCKS because DB2/400 only supports read or exclusive
> 3.  DB2 supports both a FETCH FIRST  ROWS and update LOCKS clauses.
> So we change supportsLockingWithSelectRange = true in the AbstractDB2Dictionary class
and change the DB2Dictionary to append the correct LOCKS syntax depending on vendor, release
and isolation level.
