Subject [jira] Commented: (OPENJPA-1530) MySQL storage engine support
Date Thu, 04 Mar 2010 20:37:27 GMT


Jeremy Bauer commented on OPENJPA-1530:

I agree with Milosz.  The property does not go beyond the scope of the dictionary so it should
be localized to the MySQL dictionary.  For example:  

<property name="openjpa.jdbc.DBDictionary" value="mysql(Engine=ndbcluster)"/>.

You just need to provide a getter and setter (or public field) for "Engine" in the MySQL dictionary
and the config framework will take care of setting the value.  Also, if you add a new dictionary
value please update the OpenJPA docs specific to the MySQL dictionary.  Oh, and the print
statement needs to be removed.  :-)

> The MySQLDictionary currently supports only TYPE innodb. There is a skeleton for support
of this element but there is no way to change it from the default.
> Also, according to the MySQL documentation
 TYPE is deprecated. The recommended (and supported) keyword is ENGINE. 
> "Since MySQL 5.1.8, it produces a warning. It will be removed in a future MySQL release.
You should not use TYPE in any new applications, and you should immediately begin conversion
of existing applications to use ENGINE instead."
> I propose to change TYPE to ENGINE, and to provide a way for the user to specify which
engine to use.
> I need some feedback on this: A property, mysql.engine, with a default of innodb (for
compatibility) can be specified by the user in order to create tables using any of the supported
engines. Can the property be put onto the command line? Can the property be added to persistence.xml?
Can the property be added to the maven profile properties?
