Subject [jira] Created: (OPENJPA-843) Unnecessary version update on inverse-side of a 1-m relationship

Unnecessary version update on inverse-side of a 1-m relationship

                 Key: OPENJPA-843
             Project: OpenJPA
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: jdbc
    Affects Versions: 2.0.0
            Reporter: Dinkar Rao
            Priority: Minor

A Customer has 1-m relationship to Inventory:

Customer {
    private Collection<Inventory> inventories = new ArrayList<Inventory>();

Inventory {
    private Customer customer;

When an Inventory instance is modified, its version is bumped as expected.  However, when
an Inventory is added or deleted from the Inventory list in Customer, the Customer instance
version is unnecessarily bumped up. According to section 3.4.2 of the 1.0 spec,

"The version attribute is updated by the persistence provider runtime when the object is 
written to the database. All non-relationship fields and properties and all relationships

owned by the entity are included in version checks."

When additions or deletions are made to the Inventory list of Customer, the version of the
Customer instance should remain unchanged. As the inverse-side, Customer does not own the
Inventory that is added/deleted.
