OPENJPA-800 OpenJPA 2.0 iteration 1 primary task Jeremy Bauer Major ClosedClosed

With the completion of iteration 1, OpenJPA includes many new JPA 2.0 (based on the 10/31/2008 spec draft) features. Here is a summary of the new features provided by OpenJPA:

  • The current level of JPA 2.0 API. You can compile against and use implemented methods of the new API. Unimplemented methods will throw an UnsupportedOperationException.
  • Validation using the current JPA 2.0 orm and persistence schemas. Version 2.0 persistence and orm files will validate using these new schemas. Metadata elements provided in iteration 1 (collection-table and element-collection) will validate and can be specified in XML.
  • Support for nested embeddables. An embeddable can now be nested within another embeddable.
  • Support for relationships within embeddables. Embeddables can now contain relationships.
  • Collections of embeddables and basic types through the use of ElementCollection and CollectionTable. Element collections and collection tables can be specified using annotations or in a version 2.0 orm XML.
  • Support for the Criteria API based on the current spec level, including the new constructs; KEY(), VALUE(), and CASE(). OpenJPA also includes the ability to convert queries constructed with the Criteria API to JPQL.
  • Support for JPA 2.0 JPQL. Compilation of JPA 2.0 JPQL statements and execution of the new JPQL expressions including simple case expressions, general case expressions, coalesce, and the nullif expression. In addition, the select expression allows mathematical operations and the result alias can be specified in the select expression and in the ORDER BY clause. Execution of additional JPA 2.0 JPQL expressions will be added in future iterations.
  • Native sequence generators allow the database schema name to be specified on the annotation or in a version 2.0 orm XML.

OPENJPA-807 OpenJPA 2.0 iteration 2 primary task Jeremy Bauer Major ClosedClosed

With the completion of iteration 2, OpenJPA includes several additional JPA 2.0 (based on the 10/31/2008 spec draft) features. Here is a summary of the new features provided by OpenJPA:

  • Support for the JPA 2.0 level 2 cache interface. Operations on the OpenJPA data cache are now available from the entity manager factory through a standard JPA interface.
  • Support for use of order column through a JPA annotations or orm mapping file elements. Existing OpenJPA support for order columns has been extended to support the JPA standard OrderColumn definition. This iteration supports a configurable base value attribue. Support for the table and contiguous attributes will be provided in future iterations.
  • Enhanced map support. The use of Map collections has been significantly enhanced. This iteration includes use of the new MapKeyClass, MapKeyColumn, MapKeyJoinColumn, and MapKeyJoinColumns annotations and corresponding orm mapping file elements.
  • Support for JPQL INDEX() function within a query projection or predicate. Allows the index of ordered columns to be projected or used as part of a query predicate. Projection is currently not supported for element collection. This support will be added in a future iteration.
  • Support for entity TYPE() expression. Allows projection of or query criteria based on entity type. OpenJPA does not currently allow selection of an abstract entity type.
  • Support for new javax.persistence standard properties. Standard properties such as javax.persistence.jdbc.driver can now be specified as configuration properties.

Milestone 2

The Milestone 2 release will not be an official ASF release, but will be created as a Early Access 2 SNAPSHOT branch due to the JSR-317 terms of use restrictions. A distribution of the Early Access 2 SNAPSHOT is available here for download or the code can be checked out from svn.

OPENJPA-808 OpenJPA 2.0 iteration 3 primary task Jeremy Bauer Major ClosedClosed

With the completion of iteration 3, OpenJPA includes several additional JPA 2.0 (based on the 10/31/2008 spec draft) features. Here is a summary of the new features provided by OpenJPA:

  • JPA specification level is available through OpenJPA configuration. The JPA specification level of the provider can now be retrieved via the openjpa.Specification property.
  • Support for derived identities including the use of MappedById. OpenJPA now supports entities which have an identity that is derived from the id of another identity for one-to-one and many-to-one relationships with a parent-dependent type association.
  • Support for getSupportedProperties and getProperties methods on the EntityManager and EntityManagerFactory. The active properties and their values, in addition to the full set of supported properties can be retrieved for the EntityManager and EntityManagerFactory.
  • The OrderColumn annotation and equivalent XML now allows the specification of the table element. The table element can be used to specify the join or collection table used to maintain the relationship.
  • Support for getHints and getSupportedHints on Query. The active hints and their values, in addition to supported hints can be retrieved for a Query.

  • AttributeOverride enhanced to allow navigation of multiple levels of embeddables, use with map keys and values, and use with element collections.
  • AssociationOverride enhanced to support specification of of a join table and override of embeddables within relationships.
  • Additional support of derived identities.

OPENJPA-956 OpenJPA 2.0 iteration 5 primary task Jeremy Bauer Major ClosedClosed

With the completion of iteration 5, OpenJPA includes several additional JPA 2.0 (based on the 03/13/2009 spec draft) features. Here is a summary of the new features provided by OpenJPA:

  • Updated spec APIs and schemas based upon most current specification draft. New, unimplemented methods will throw an UnsupportedOperationException.
  • A lock timeout hint value can now be specified on applicable entity manager and query methods.
  • Lock mode (including the new pessimistic lock modes) can be specified on query methods and named queries. This allows for fine-grained locking configuration at the method level.
  • The unwrap method can be used to get access to underlying OpenJPA entity manager and query interfaces.
  • JPQL queries support the selection of KEY, VALUE, and ENTRY map values.
  • Single entities or an entity graph may be detached from the entity manager. Specifying the new cascade type of DETACH or ALL on relationships allows selective detachment of an entity graph.
  • The third argument of the JPQL SUBSTRING function is now optional.
  • JPQL queries have been enhanced to support the projection of element collections.
  • JPQL queries have been enhanced to support nested embeddables and relationships from embeddables.

  • Support for scalar expressions in JPQL subqueries. Scalar expressions such as substring can now be used within a subquery.

  • Support for explicit access types on persistent types. The persistence access method to use can now be specified on a per-type and field/method level.

  • Updates to OrderColumn and EntityManager methods to match new spec draft.

  • JPQL queries now support key/value paths as arguments to scalar functions. KEY() and VALUE() can now be used to indicate that a map key or value should be used as an argument to a scalar function.

  • New MapKeyEnumerated and MapKeyTemporal annotations and equivalent XML elements for tagging the key of a map collection as either an enumerated or temporal type.
  • Base support for JSR-303 Bean Validation including basic configuration and lifecycle-based event validation.
  • Support the use of delimited identifiers within annotation attributes for a subset of mapping annotations when using the Derby and DB2 databases. Support for additional databases will be added in future iterations.
  • JPQL subqueries now support derived path expressions and the use of KEY() on map collections.
  • OSGI bundle metadata has been added to the OpenJPA jar. This simplifies the use of OpenJPA in an OSGi environment such as Apache Felix .
  • OrderBy no longer requires name attribute when applied to a collection of basic type.
