Constant Field Values
Method Detail

closeTransaction

void closeTransaction()
Closes this transaction's JDBC connection.

Rollback is performed on the current transaction to reset all the data in the cache to their initial state, and then the JDBC connection is dropped.

This method is invoked by ApplicationModule.disconnect(), which should be called so that JDBC resources will be properly released.


setPostThreshold

void setPostThreshold(int count)
Sets the threshold value for the commit-cycle's post phase.

When commit() is invoked the framework attempts to post the transaction's modifications, making count attempts before failing with an exception. This mechanism allows applications to update data in the cache within the post phase, and commit all changes.

Parameters:
count - the new threshold value.

getPostThreshold

int getPostThreshold()
Gets the threshold value for the commit-cycle's post phase.


setValidationThreshold

void setValidationThreshold(int count)
Sets the threshold value for the commit-cycle's validation phase.

When commit() is invoked the framework attempts to validate the transaction's modifications, making count attempts before failing with an exception. This mechanism allows applications to update data in the cache within the validation phase, and validate them before they are posted.

Parameters:
count - the new threshold value.

getValidationThreshold

int getValidationThreshold()
Gets the threshold value for the commit-cycle's validation phase.


addTransactionListener

void addTransactionListener(TransactionListener listener)
Adds a listener to the transaction's list of event subscribers.

Listeners are notified of commit and rollback events spawned by the commit() or rollback() methods. The framework adds modified top-level Entity Objects to this list.

Parameters:
listener - the subscriber to be added.

addTransactionListenerNoCheck

void addTransactionListenerNoCheck(TransactionListener listener)
Adds a listener to the transaction's event subscribers list, without checking whether the listener is already on the list.

Listeners are notified of commit and rollback events spawned by the commit() or rollback() methods. The framework adds modified top-level Entity Objects to this list.

Parameters:
listener - the subscriber to be added.

removeTransactionListener

void removeTransactionListener(TransactionListener listener)
Removes the listener from the transactions list of event subscribers.

Parameters:
listener - the subscriber to be removed.

addTransactionPostListener

void addTransactionPostListener(TransactionPostListener listener)

Parameters:
listener - the subscriber to be added.

addTransactionPostListenerNoCheck

void addTransactionPostListenerNoCheck(TransactionPostListener listener)
Adds a listener to the transaction's list of post-phase event subscribers, without checking whether the listener is already on the list.

setTrackNewAndModifiedRowsOnly

void setTrackNewAndModifiedRowsOnly(boolean flag)
Advanced: Most applications should not use this method

Sets this transaction into a mode where this transaction will post/commit only those new entities that have been modified by a setAttribute call. Entities that were created/inserted into collections but never updated by a setAttribute will not be placed in the transaction's list and hence will not get validated, posted or committed.

This is useful in UIs where the application may create five new rows for display and only update say one or two of them. So only one or two of those rows are added to the transaction. The rest of the entites are in STATUS_INITIALIZED state and are not added to the Entity-cache or Transaction.

boolean isTrackNewAndModifiedRowsOnly()
Advanced: Most applications should not use this method

Returns true if this transaction allows entities to be in STATUS_INITIALIZED state.


getBatchPostExceptionThreshold

int getBatchPostExceptionThreshold()
In case of batch mode post operation, try to post the batched set of entities for each entity type and post operation (Insert/Update/Delete) for this many number of exceptions.

See Also:
setBatchPostExceptionThreshold(int)

setBatchPostExceptionThreshold

void setBatchPostExceptionThreshold(int count)
Set this value to 0 to let all the modified entities be posted for each entity type and entity-DML operation to collect possible exceptions for all such entities. Set this number to a postive integer to set a limit on number of exceptions to collect for each entity type and DML operation before aborting the post operation.


isConnected

boolean isConnected(boolean pingDatabase)

getRootApplicationModule

ApplicationModule getRootApplicationModule()

isLockOptimistic

boolean isLockOptimistic()
Indicates whether the current locking mode is optimistic or not.

Returns:
true if the locking mode is LOCK_OPTIMISTIC or LOCK_OPTUPDATE.
