Subject [jira] Created: (OPENJPA-306) Validation for Configuration Properties
Date Thu, 02 Aug 2007 22:18:52 GMT
Validation for Configuration Properties

                 Key: OPENJPA-306
             Project: OpenJPA
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: kernel
         Environment: All supported environments
            Reporter: Christoph Bussler
            Priority: Minor

In the general case, configuration properties have constraints on values they can have. Some
of these constraints are implemented today, for example enumeration of possible values for
a given property of type enumeration. However, other properties, like lockTimeout of type
integer do not (yet) have constraints defined and implemented that can be checked against.

For example, when the lockTimeout property is set it is undefined currently what permissible
values are. The default is -1, but is -2 a possible value? Is 0 a possible value? Are all
the natural numbers possible values?

What would be required is a validate() method that given an intended value for a property
returns true/false indicating if the provided value for the property is a valid one. If this
is done uniformly across all properties it is possible to check the property's value for consistency
before attempting deployment.
