Subject DataCache and refresh problem
Date Fri, 02 May 2008 20:37:00 GMT
    According to OpenJPA user guide, the refresh action is to make sure the 
persistence state of an instance is synchronized with the values in the database. The following
test case has the expected behavior with the exception when dataCache is turned off: 
EntityManagerImpl em = (EntityManagerImpl) emf.createEntityManager();
EntityA entityA = em.find(EntityA.class, 1);
String query1 = "delete from entityA where id=1";
Query q1 = em.createNativeQuery(query1);
int count = q1.executeUpdate();
em.refresh(entityA); <== EntityNotFound error

Exception in thread "main" <openjpa-0.0.0-rnull nonfatal store error> 
org.apache.openjpa.persistence.EntityNotFoundException: The instance of type "class EntityA"
with oid "1" no longer exists in the data store.  This may mean that you deleted the instance
in a separate transaction, but this context still has a cached version.

However, when DataCache is turned on, we no longer see EntityNotFound error. This is because
in BrokerImpl.refreshInternal, before the trip to the database to load the fields, the check
for version is performed. The check for version, unfortunately, is done by DataCacheStoreManager
contrast to JDBCStoreManager when dataCache is off). This store manager still keeps the data
object in the cache, although there is no longer a corresponding row in the database. Since
the versions of the cached object and the object to be refreshed does not change, there will
be *no* trip to the database to re-load the fields.

Is this working as design? or is this a bug? Should the refresh behave the same regardless
of the dataCache configuration? If so, the proposed fix will be either 
(1) openjpa always go to database to reload without checking the version when datacache is
(2) openjpa uses JDBCStoreManager to check the version during refresh even when dataCache
is on (if it is possible to switch store manager).

Any comment?
