Subject [jira] Created: (OPENJPA-586) Binding Query parameter fails validation for Externalized field

Binding Query parameter fails validation for Externalized field
---------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: OPENJPA-586
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OPENJPA-586
             Project: OpenJPA
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Pinaki Poddar


OpenJPA supports a field f of declared type <T> be persisted in database corresponding
to a different type <S> when  f specifies a two-way transformation between <S>
and <T>. For example, a field f can be declared as java.net.URL but stored in database
as String (i.e. VARCHAR). 

Now the question is:
    When an 'externalized' field f occurs in query predicate and is bound by a parameter p
what should be the runtime type of p? 

   The documentation [1] says p can be of either <T> or <S>.

But the code breaks during parameter validation if Class(p) = <T> and with data conversion
error if Class(p) = <S>

Example:
1.   Declare a persistent field f of type java.util.UUID externalized to java.lang.String
with a pair of transformer functions

    @Persistent
    @Externalizer("toString")        
    @Factory("UUID.fromString")
    private UUID    uuid;

2. Use the field f in a Query with a binding parameter:
        String jpql = "SELECT p FROM ExternalValues p WHERE p.uuid=:uuid";
        Query query = em.createQuery(jpql);

3. Try to set parameter on the query:
         a) query.setParameter("uuid", new UUID(1,2));  // parameter type equals declared
type of f
or
         b) query.setParameter(1, new UUID(1,2).toString()); // parameter type equals externalized
type of f

4. Either of step 3a or 3b will result in runtime exception
