Class ObjectId

java.lang.Object
  extended by org.apache.cayenne.ObjectId
All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable

public class ObjectId
extends Object
implements Serializable

A portable global identifier for persistent objects. ObjectId can be temporary (used for transient or new uncommitted objects) or permanent (used for objects that have been already stored in DB). A temporary ObjectId stores object entity name and a pseudo-unique binary key; permanent id stores a map of values from an external persistent store (aka "primary key").

Constructor Detail

ObjectId

public ObjectId(String entityName)
Creates a TEMPORARY ObjectId. Assigns a generated unique key.

Since:
1.2

ObjectId

public ObjectId(String entityName,
                byte[] key)
Creates a TEMPORARY id with a specified entity name and a binary key. It is a caller responsibility to provide a globally unique binary key.

Since:
1.2

ObjectId

public ObjectId(String entityName,
                String key,
                int value)
Creates a portable permanent ObjectId.

Parameters:
entityName - The entity name which this object id is for
key - A key describing this object id, usually the attribute name for the primary key
value - The unique value for this object id
Since:
1.2

ObjectId

public ObjectId(String entityName,
                String key,
                Object value)
Creates a portable permanent ObjectId.

Parameters:
entityName - The entity name which this object id is for
key - A key describing this object id, usually the attribute name for the primary key
value - The unique value for this object id
Since:
1.2

ObjectId

public ObjectId(String entityName,
                Map<String,?> idMap)
Creates a portable permanent ObjectId as a compound primary key.

Parameters:
entityName - The entity name which this object id is for
idMap - Keys are usually the attribute names for each part of the primary key. Values are unique when taken as a whole.
Since:
1.2
Method Detail

isTemporary

public boolean isTemporary()
Is this is temporary object id (used for objects which are not yet persisted to the data store).


getEntityName

public String getEntityName()
Since:
1.2

getKey

public byte[] getKey()
Get the binary temporary object id. Null if this object id is permanent (persisted to the data store).


getIdSnapshot

public Map<String,Object> getIdSnapshot()
Returns an unmodifiable Map of persistent id values, essentially a primary key map. For temporary id returns replacement id, if it was already created. Otherwise returns an empty map.


equals

public boolean equals(Object object)
Overrides:
equals in class Object

hashCode

public int hashCode()
Overrides:
hashCode in class Object

getReplacementIdMap

public Map<String,Object> getReplacementIdMap()
Returns a non-null mutable map that can be used to append replacement id values. This allows to incrementally build a replacement GlobalID.

Since:
1.2

createReplacementId

public ObjectId createReplacementId()
Creates and returns a replacement ObjectId. No validation of ID is done.

Since:
1.2

isReplacementIdAttached

public boolean isReplacementIdAttached()
Returns true if there is full or partial replacement id attached to this id. This method is preferrable to "!getReplacementIdMap().isEmpty()" as it avoids unneeded replacement id map creation.


toString

public String toString()
A standard toString method used for debugging. It is guaranteed to produce the same string if two ObjectIds are equal.

Overrides:
toString in class Object
