Should the <shared-cache-mode> element in a persistence unit definition automatically
turn on the data cache?
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: OPENJPA-1532
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OPENJPA-1532
             Project: OpenJPA
          Issue Type: Question
          Components: datacache
    Affects Versions: 2.0.0-beta, 2.0.0-M3, 2.0.0-M2, 2.0.0-M1, 2.0.0, 2.0.1, 2.1.0
            Reporter: Jody Grassel
            Priority: Minor


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
off?
