Subject Re: Cascade on Delete is not working
Date Fri, 11 Jan 2008 20:06:12 GMT
Miro,

I am having troubles which appear identical to yours.

I have a class "Foo" that has a ManyToOne bidirectional association with a
class "Bar", controlled by "Bar".  The relationship requires that if a Foo
bean is deleted, any Bar bean it maps to must also be deleted, but not vice
versa.  However, my tests verify that this is not happening.  I presume I'm
doing something wrong.

My annotations look like this:


@Entity
> public class Foo {
>
>     @Id
>     @GeneratedValue
>     private long ID;
>
>     @OneToMany(cascade=CascadeType.ALL, mappedBy="foo")
>     private Set<Bar> bars = new HashSet<Bar> ();
>
> ...
> }
>
>
> @Entity
> public class Bar {
>
>     @Id
>     @GeneratedValue
>     private long ID;
>
>     @ManyToOne(cascade = {
>             CascadeType.PERSIST,
>             CascadeType.REFRESH ,
>             CascadeType.MERGE})
>     private Foo foo;
>
> ...
> }
>

What I intend to do in the immediate future is to create a manager object
that will take care of deletions for me, so when I delete an instance of
foo, referencing instances of bar are deleted, and any references to bar in
other entities (such as class "funk", for example), are likewise removed.

This removal of references in collections seems slightly different than what
is described in the cascade remove literature.  Cascading remove seems to
focus on wiping out entire rows instead of clearing fk references, so I
recognize in my setup I need to do a little helping work.

This isn't as great as cascading, but OpenJPA's already doing a heckuva job
for me--I'm happy to meet them in the middle.

I don't know if this helps you solve your problem, but at least you're not
alone ;-)
