Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (OPENJPA-182) db2 update lock syntax WITH <isolation> USE AND KEEP UPDATE LOCKS
Date Thu, 05 Apr 2007 18:35:08 GMT

We were unaware that fetch plan properties could be set as Hints.  Now
that we look at the code we see this,  but we did not find this when
we read the OpenJPA documentation.  The only hint we found in the
documentation was the OracleSelectHint and so our design was based on
how OracleSelectHint was implemented.  OracleSelectHint is not
implemented as a FetchPlan property.

Why don't you integrate your patch and then we will rerun our tests to
make sure the function works as we had originally intended.

DB2Dictionary code is necessary. It's possible that the LockManager will already take into
account the current JDBCFetchConfiguration's lock level settings when specifying the forUpdate
setting for the toSelect() clause. Some test cases will make it easy to figure out the answer
to this question.
