Subject [jira] Resolved: (OPENJPA-286) Can't merge detached One-To-Many child instance. The entities were implement by an internal Hash container.
Date Wed, 16 Jul 2008 04:51:31 GMT


Pinaki Poddar resolved OPENJPA-286.

    Resolution: Fixed

This style of modeling persistent states as a name-value pair does not notify OpenJPA which
field has been dirtied and hence the observed behavior.
Inform OpenJPA when a field has been dirtied and things should work.
The added lines in TestMargeHashEntity (around Line 79) are marked with + and additional comments
		em = emf.createEntityManager();
+		parent = em.merge(parent);                                                  // merge the
detached entity to the current context
+		OpenJPAPersistence.cast(em).dirty(parent, "children"); // mark it dirty because OpenJPA
did not understand that the name-value pair has been updated
                          // now proceed as usual by merging it again so that it can detect
the new child added in detached state 
		parent = em.merge(parent);

key-value pairs.
> It's a common design of Entity Bean in EJB2.x ages. Does any one use it in OpenJPA? I
am using it right now, and encounter an issue in entity cascade manipulate. Here is the issue

>         // To hold the {attributeName, value} pair of the value object.

> The relationship between C and D is one-to-many. I use following code to reproduce the
>                 C c = em.find(C.class, 1);
>                 logger.debug(c.getDs().size());
>                 D d = new D();
>                 d.setC(c);
>                 c.getDs().add(d);
>                 em.merge(c);
> After commit the transaction, you will find the new D instance was not inserted into
the database(there is no insert sql log as well). After you add, em.persist(c). That new instance
will be added!
> Meanwhile, I wrote a couple of classes, which do not use a HashSet. I got the expected
result after merge is done.
