Subject Re: Problem with openjpa enhancer - using runtime enhancement
Date Wed, 16 Jul 2008 14:41:55 GMT
 Recently, I found an obscure problem with the IBM JDK when using the
javaagent enhancement, but I don't see how this would apply to this
situation. You end up with a nasty exception from the Java runtime, and I
would think you would have mentioned that...

Other than than, I am not aware of any differences between the two forms of

One idea is to ensure that the -javaagent is really taking effect. Besides
these two enhancement mechanisms, there is a third fallback mechanism. This
fallback mechanism is not quite "ready for production" and I would recommend
turning it off. We do that for WebSphere.

openjpa.RuntimeUnenhancedClasses=unsupported  (along with your -javaagent

This can be specified as a property in their persistence.xml or as a java
command line parameter (-Dxxx=yyy).

If you are accidentally falling into this third style of enhancement, then
you will get an error about a particular entity not being enhanced and your
processing will quit.  At least this will show whether you are using your
-javaagent like you expected.

Do you have a simple testcase that you could share to demonstrate the
