Subject Inheritance with Listgetter Bug
Date Sat, 21 Nov 2009 01:17:36 GMT

I have a Problem with my OpenJPA, and i think its a bug. The Getter/Proxy
dont get all elements of a List.
Following the complete Testcase scenario:

For the test the following Settings are used. Cache have to be disabled,
otherwise the test will pass because cached data.
   <property name="openjpa.Log" value="SQL=TRACE"/>
   <property name="openjpa.OrphanedKeyAction" value="log(Channel=Orphans,

   <property name="openjpa.Multithreaded" value="true" />
   <property name="openjpa.InverseManager" value="true"/>
   <property name="openjpa.LockManager" value="none"/>
   <property name="openjpa.WriteLockLevel"    value="none"/>
   <property name="openjpa.Compatibility"

   <property name="openjpa.DetachState" value="fetch-groups"/>
   <property name="openjpa.jdbc.SynchronizeMappings" value="buildSchema" />
   // Using Mysql but i think the prob is the query it selves :)
   <property name="openjpa.ConnectionURL"
value="jdbc:mysql://localhost/jpatest" />
   <property name="openjpa.ConnectionDriverName"
value="com.mysql.jdbc.Driver" />
   <property name="openjpa.ConnectionUserName" value="jpatest" />
   <property name="openjpa.ConnectionPassword" value="XXXXXXXXX" />

My Entityclasses:
public class T1 {
   private Integer id;
     public void setId(Integer id) { = id;

   public Integer getId() {
       return id;
public class T2 extends T1{
     @OneToMany(fetch=FetchType.LAZY, cascade=CascadeType.PERSIST)
   private List<T2> t2List;

   public void setT1List(List<T2> t2List) {
       this.t2List = t2List;

   public List<T2> getT2List() {
       return t2List;
public class T3 extends T2 {

We have 3 Classes on the top of each other, at the middle a List with T2s.

My Testclasses:
private static void commit(){

// Create a TestEntity
T2 t2 = new T2();

// Put a T2
t2.getT2List().add(new T2());
em.refresh(t2);   // important to cause a new DB-Query.
assert(t2.getT2List().size()==1);  // its *OK*

// Put a T3
t2.getT2List().add(new T3());
em.refresh(t2);   // important to cause a new DB-Query.
assert(t2.getT2List().size()==2);// it *FAILS*

Database after the Test:
id -> DTYPE
51 -> T2
52 -> T2
53 -> T3
T2_ID -> T2_T2LIST
-> 52
51 -> 53

In the Database, there are both Elements correctly. I think the Problem is,
that OpenJPA creates the following SQL-Queries:
   FROM T1_T1 t0 INNER JOIN T1 t1 ON t0.T2_ID =
   WHERE t0.T2_ID = ? AND *t1.DTYPE = ? *
[params=(int) 3601, (String) *T2*]

So the T3 Entities would be ignored. in this query. Did anyone have an Idea
why jpa makes such a strange query with ignoring the subclasses of T2.

My other trys:
- Marks with @Nonpolymorphic(NonpolymorphicType.JOINABLE)
- Marks with @ElementNonpolymorphic(NonpolymorphicType.JOINABLE)
- Take Set instead of List
- The Scenario without a List and a Single Relation would pass and gets an
query with t1.DTYPE IN (T2, T3). So its only with Lists.

Hope for help
