Subject [jira] Created: (OPENJPA-1803) Unwrap EntityManager to Connection
Date Sat, 18 Sep 2010 15:15:52 GMT
Unwrap EntityManager to Connection
----------------------------------

                 Key: OPENJPA-1803
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OPENJPA-1803
             Project: OpenJPA
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: jpa
    Affects Versions: 2.0.1
            Reporter: Harald Wellmann


This is currently the recommended way to access the javax.sql.Connection underlying an EntityManager:

        OpenJPAEntityManager oem = OpenJPAPersistence.cast(em);
        Connection con = (Connection) oem.getConnection();

It would be more convenient to simply write

        Connection con = em.unwrap(Connection.class);

That way, the client needing to access the Connection only depends on the javax.persistence
API and not on org.apache.openjpa.*.

I believe the JPA 2.0 spec neither mandates nor forbids this functionality. It is supported
by Eclipselink 2.x.
