Subject RE: repeatable autogenerate names for key constraints
Date Wed, 24 Apr 2013 10:35:44 GMT
Also I am using inheritance with @Inheritance(strategy = InheritanceType.TABLE_PER_CLASS) and
this strategy is overwritten by the base class strategy resulting in tables for the abstract
superclass that otherwise wouldn't exist.

I found out the hard way that using BaseClassStrategy and SubclassStrategy are null by default.
This is not clear from the documentation; it even states that flat is the default strategy
which I verified to be false: an appropriate strategy is selected based on configuration on
the entities. Using these settings will ignore the individual settings in the entities and
use the strategies for all entities.
Lesson learned: don't mess with OpenJPA internals and be very careful with custom plugin strategies.

Note that there is a serious bug in the code I included in the answer of my own question.
I am using the BaseClassStrategy also for subclasses which affects what tables are generated
for inheritance! To solve this you should use

			<property name="openjpa.jdbc.MappingDefaults"

But this again results in non-predictable names for primary keys used in subclasses.
