Subject [jira] Created: (OPENJPA-393) @Column(nullable=false) setting not taken into account for String field values

@Column(nullable=false) setting not taken into account for String field values

                 Key: OPENJPA-393
             Project: OpenJPA
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1.0.0
         Environment: Linux 2.6, Java JDK, Spring 2.0.7
            Reporter: Gergely Kis

The @Column(nullable=false) annotation is taken into account when creating the database schema,
however it is not taken into account when inserting string values.

See the following test case:
public class A {

    private long id;

    private String name;

    public A() {}

    public A(String name) { = name; }

[...accessor methods omitted...]

When trying to persist the instance A(null), the record will be created successfully with
an empty string as the value of the name column, instead of returning an error.

According to my analysis the problem is the following. When the @Column annotations are parsed
(see AnnotationPersistenceMappingParser) the FieldMapping.setNullValue() method is not called.
As a result, when fetching the String field value for storing it in the database the default
value for strings is returned (which is an empty string), instead of raising an exception.
See StringFieldStrategy.toDataStoreValue() for reference.

The proposed solution would be to call this setNullValue method with the appropriate parameter
while @Column annotations are parsed, but I don't know the OpenJPA source well enough to determine
whether this is the proper fix or if there are other parameters that should be set in the
FieldMapping. However, my local tests fixed the reported issue.
