CayenneDataObject

public CayenneDataObject()
Method Detail

getDataContext

@Deprecated
public DataContext getDataContext()
Deprecated. since 3.0 use PersistentObject.getObjectContext().

Returns a DataContext that holds this object. Object becomes associated with a DataContext either when the object is fetched using a query, or when a new object is registered explicitly with a DataContext.

Specified by:
getDataContext in interface DataObject

setDataContext

@Deprecated
public void setDataContext(DataContext dataContext)
Deprecated. since 3.0 use setObjectContext(ObjectContext).

Sets object DataContext.

Specified by:
setDataContext in interface DataObject

setPersistenceState

public void setPersistenceState(int persistenceState)
Specified by:
setPersistenceState in interface Persistent
Overrides:
setPersistenceState in class PersistentObject

readNestedProperty

public Object readNestedProperty(String path)
Description copied from interface: DataObject
Returns a value of the property identified by a property path. Supports reading both mapped and unmapped properties. Unmapped properties are accessed in a manner consistent with JavaBeans specification.

Property path (or nested property) is a dot-separated path used to traverse object relationships until the final object is found. If a null object found while traversing path, null is returned. If a list is encountered in the middle of the path, CayenneRuntimeException is thrown. Unlike DataObject.readPropertyDirectly(String), this method will resolve an object if it is HOLLOW.

Examples:

Specified by:
readNestedProperty in interface DataObject

readProperty

public Object readProperty(String propertyName)
Description copied from interface: DataObject
Returns a value of the property identified by propName. Resolves faults if needed. This method can safely be used instead of or in addition to the auto-generated property accessors in subclasses of CayenneDataObject.

Specified by:
readProperty in interface DataObject

readPropertyDirectly

public Object readPropertyDirectly(String propName)
Description copied from interface: DataObject
Returns mapped property value as curently stored in the DataObject. Returned value maybe a fault or a real value. This method will not attempt to resolve faults, or to read unmapped properties.

Specified by:
readPropertyDirectly in interface DataObject

writeProperty

public void writeProperty(String propName,
                          Object val)
Description copied from interface: DataObject
Sets the property to the new value. Resolves faults if needed. This method can be safely used instead of or in addition to the auto-generated property modifiers to set simple properties. Note that to set to-one relationships use DataObject.setToOneTarget(String, DataObject, boolean).

Specified by:
writeProperty in interface DataObject
Parameters:
propName - a name of the bean property being modified.
val - a new value of the property.

writePropertyDirectly

public void writePropertyDirectly(String propName,
                                  Object val)
Description copied from interface: DataObject
Modifies a value of a named property without altering the object state in any way, and without triggering any database operations. This method is intended mostly for internal use by Cayenne framework, and shouldn't be called from the application code.

Specified by:
writePropertyDirectly in interface DataObject

removeToManyTarget

public void removeToManyTarget(String relName,
                               DataObject value,
                               boolean setReverse)
Description copied from interface: DataObject
Removes an object from a to-many relationship.

Specified by:
removeToManyTarget in interface DataObject

addToManyTarget

public void addToManyTarget(String relName,
                            DataObject value,
                            boolean setReverse)
Description copied from interface: DataObject
Adds an object to a to-many relationship.

Specified by:
addToManyTarget in interface DataObject

setToOneTarget

public void setToOneTarget(String relationshipName,
                           DataObject value,
                           boolean setReverse)
Description copied from interface: DataObject
Sets to-one relationship to a new value. Resolves faults if needed. This method can safely be used instead of or in addition to the auto-generated property modifiers to set properties that are to-one relationships.

Specified by:
setToOneTarget in interface DataObject
Parameters:
relationshipName - a name of the bean property being modified - same as the name of ObjRelationship.
value - a new value of the property.
setReverse - whether to update the reverse relationship pointing from the old and new values of the property to this object.

willConnect

protected void willConnect(String relationshipName,
                           Persistent object)
Called before establishing a relationship with another object. Applies "persistence by reachability" logic, pulling one of the two objects to a DataConext of another object in case one of the objects is transient. If both objects are persistent, and they don't have the same DataContext, CayenneRuntimeException is thrown.

Since:
1.2

setReverseRelationship

protected void setReverseRelationship(String relName,
                                      DataObject val)
Initializes reverse relationship from object val to this object.

Parameters:
relName - name of relationship from this object to val.

unsetReverseRelationship

protected void unsetReverseRelationship(String relName,
                                        DataObject val)
Removes current object from reverse relationship of object val to this object.


toStringBuffer

public StringBuffer toStringBuffer(StringBuffer buffer,
                                   boolean fullDesc)
A variation of "toString" method, that may be more efficient in some cases. For example when printing a list of objects into the same String.


appendProperties

protected void appendProperties(StringBuffer buffer)

toString

public String toString()
Overrides:
toString in class PersistentObject

fetchFinished

@Deprecated
public void fetchFinished()
Deprecated. since 3.0 use callbacks.

Specified by:
setSnapshotVersion in interface DataObject
Since:

CayenneDataObject subclasses may override this method, calling super.

Since:
1.1

validateForInsert

public void validateForInsert(ValidationResult validationResult)

Specified by:
validateForInsert in interface Validating

1.1

validateForUpdate

public void validateForUpdate(ValidationResult validationResult)
Calls validateForSave(ValidationResult). CayenneDataObject subclasses may override it providing validation logic that should be executed for the modified objects before saving them.

Specified by:
validateForUpdate in interface Validating
Since:
1.1

validateForDelete

public void validateForDelete(ValidationResult validationResult)
This implementation does nothing. CayenneDataObject subclasses may override it providing validation logic that should be executed for the deleted objects before committing them.

Specified by:
validateForDelete in interface Validating
Since:

encodeAsXML

public void encodeAsXML(XMLEncoder encoder)
Encodes object to XML using provided encoder.
