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

Patrick Linskey commented on OPENJPA-306:
-----------------------------------------

This issue contains two concepts:

1. the addition of a Value.validate() method

2. improved implementation of Value.validate() for various of the configuration settings

I think that #1 is the short-term need, and #2 will be an ongoing effort.

> 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.
