Subject [jira] Commented: (OPENJPA-849) Add metadata-type getter methods to EntityManager
Date Fri, 13 Feb 2009 21:22:59 GMT


Pinaki Poddar commented on OPENJPA-849:


does not seem kosher for the following reason:

1. loadKey is the key with which a property is loaded from configuration artifacts. At this
point of execution, no property has been *actually* loaded, they are merely being declared
to exist. Hence we should not be setting load key.
2. configuration declares a Value. But does not assign its value. So setting its value to
-1 does not look alright. Setting default value is OK.

These issues gain significance in the light of the fact the configuration's hashcode is the
key to a factory in JNDI. And computation of hashcode depends on the actual value of the Values.
As an extreme example, assume two Configuration C1 and C2 nearly identical but differs *only*
in their query.timeout value. The requirement is hash code for C1 and C2 must not be equal.
And that is what Configuration.hashCode() ensures. But, because we are setting query timeout
to -1 (that is not what the user's p.xml sets) and it is marked as dynamic, in both cases
Configuration hashcode will treat query.timeout value to be -1 and will end up computing same
hashcode for C1 and C2.
