Subject Re: DataCache and refresh problem
Date Fri, 02 May 2008 22:42:46 GMT
After further investigation, it appears that when DataCache is on (the StoreManager becomes
DataCacheStoreManager), the operations of sm.syncVersion and sm.load are all performed on
the DataCacheStoreManager. 
Just force syncVersion from database is not enough, we also need to force the load from backend,
if this is the expected behavior. Any comment is appreciated.
