Craig Russell - 08/Oct/07 10:25 AM Hi Kevin, One question. In the generated clone method,
after calling super.clone(), why do you not simply invoke stateManager = null; pcState = 0;
instead of calling the setOwner(null, 0) method? Seems like there is additional code in setOwner
that you want to avoid because there is not yet any relationship between the owner and the
sco. The effect of calling this method from the clone might be to disassociate the original

The original reason is that I couldn't figure out the proper serp invocations to just set
those two fields.  :-)  Then, I found the setOwner method on the Proxy (also generated code)
that did just what I was looking for.  So, it was more straight-forward to just call this
method than to repeat the same code.

As far as I can tell, the setOwner has no other side effects.  I am calling setOwner on the
Proxy, not the StateManager.  The code is generated in the ProxyManagerImpl class (addProxyMethods
method).  And, the javadoc for this method is as follows:

     * Reset the state of the proxy, and set the owning instance of the
     * proxy and the name of the field it is assigned to. Set to null to
     * indicate that the proxy is no longer managed.
    public void setOwner(OpenJPAStateManager sm, int field);

> Per the discussion on that thread, I am proposing to modify the generated proxy code

from the original object, but then also null out the sm (StateManager) and zero out the field
attributes.  This action detaches the cloned object from the StateManager (and associated
> Instead of limiting this action to the Calendar proxy, I am adding the clone() method
implementation to all of our proxy objects that we generate.  Granted, some of the object
types do not directly support the clone() method, but that will be detected when or if anybody
attempts to use the clone() method on these types (compiler generated error message).
