Subject [jira] Updated: (OPENJPA-1532) Should the <shared-cache-mode> element in a persistence unit definition automatically turn on the data cache?
Date Thu, 25 Feb 2010 14:39:28 GMT


Michael Dick updated OPENJPA-1532:

    Attachment: OPENJPA-1532.patch.txt

Attaching a patch which partially resolves this issue. I wouldn't consider it finished though.

Specifically the patch sets openjpa.DataCache and openjpa.RemoteCommitProvider to the most
basic values if :
1. They are not already provided in persistence.xml or passed in when the EMF is created
2. shared-cache-mode is not NONE

There's still work to be done to resolve conflicts, (eg shared-cache-mode = ALL and openjpa.DataCache=false),
and there may be a cleaner way to handle the properties, but at least it's a starting point.

> The JPA 2.0 spec introduces a new persistence unit definition element, <shared-cache-mode>,
which accepts NONE, ALL, ENABLE_SELECTIVE, and DISABLE_SELECTIVE.  The JPA 2.0 spec section
3.7.1 documents the behavior of each of those modes.
> What I am curious about is if the use of <shared-cache-mode> should implicitly
enable OpenJPA's data cache plugin.  Currently, the above element is completely ignored if
the persistence unit is missing the properties: openjpa.DataCache=true and openjpa.RemoteCommitProvider=sjvm
(because by default, OpenJPA disables data caching).  My interpretation of the spec suggests
that <shared-cache-mode> is not only a platform-independent method of instructing the
data cache which entities are eligible for admittance to the data cache, but it is also a
switch providing a platform-independent method of both turning the data cache on or off (since
whether the cache is enabled by default is platform-specific).  Otherwise, why have a NONE
value, if it was not intended to be a platform independent means of turning the data cache
