public class EntityImpl
extends RowImpl
implements Entity, DomainOwnerInterface

This class implements the middle-tier representations of database rows.

An Entity Object provides an object-oriented representation of the data it caches from a database object, such as a table or view. Database rows are presented as individual Entities, in which attributes typically correspond to columns in the corresponding table.

The status of an Entity Object's data, relative to the corresponding database data, are indicated by its current post-state and Entity-state. The Entity-state indicates the state of the Entity Object's data relative to the actual database data, and the state of the transaction itself. The Post-state indicates the state of the Entity Object's data relative to the transaction's corresponding database-data.

States are set to one of these values: STATUS_INITIALIZED, STATUS_NEW, STATUS_MODIFIED, STATUS_DELETED and STATUS_DEAD based on whether the Entity Object is being created, updated, deleted, or rolled back, respectively. These operations can set either or both the post-state and the Entity-state. The status values have a slightly different meaning depending on whether they are set for an Entity-state or a post-state:

The post-state is reset to STATUS_UNMODIFIED when a post operation is invoked. The Entity-state is reset to STATUS_UNMODIFIED when the Entity Object's data is committed or rolled back.

To set/populate an attribute in an entity you could use one of the following apis

protected SparseArrayInterface initData(int attrsCount)

create

protected void create(AttributeList nameValuePair)
This method should be subclassed to supply programmatic default values to various attributes of a new Entity Object. For example, to create a sequence.

Instances of subclasses should call super.create() before performing any operations.

By default, if this Entity Object is part of a composition, and is a detail, this method checks for a valid foreign-key value in the given nameValuePair and sets the foreign-key value into its attributes appropriately. This logic validates that a detail Entity Object has a master Entity Object if the two are related by composition association.

If this method is overridden, the developer must ensure that in the case of composition, the nameValuePair belongs to the master Entity or that the nameValuePair contains all of the foreign keys required to create the Entity.

Parameters:
nameValuePair - a list of attribute values (name-value pairs) to be used in initializing the row. If the jbo.903.compatible property is specified, nameValuePair will never be null when this method is called by the view row's create. If jbo.903.compatible is not specified, the user must check for the possibility of nameValuePair being null, which means no attribute value is being passed in.
Throws:
oracle.jbo.InvalidOwnerException - if an attempt is made to create a detail row without a master, when the association between the master and detail is marked as composition.

initDefaultExpressionAttributes

protected void initDefaultExpressionAttributes(AttributeList nameValuePair)
Used to initialize this entity with values from evaluated expressions on the attributedefs. No events are generated and evaluated values replace any existing values in the relevant attributes unless it was overridden via nameValuePair


initBusLogicGroupDfltExprAttrs

protected void initBusLogicGroupDfltExprAttrs(AttributeList nameValuePair)

initDefaults

protected void initDefaults()
Initialize Entity row's default values. It walks through all entity definitions and initializes the attribute with the default value (from the definition).

protected void initBusLogicGroupDefaults()

getAttribute

public java.lang.Object getAttribute(java.lang.String name)
Returns the value of the named attribute, given a string value.

If there is a get method for this attribute in a subclass of this Entity Object, that method is invoked. The get method name is derived from the attribute name: for example, the method getDeptNo() pertains to an attribute named "Deptno".

validateEntity

protected void validateEntity()
Validates the Entities and other listeners that are members of ValidationListeners list. Once all listeners are validated and removed from the list, invoke declarative validators (if attached to this Entity Object's defintion) to validate this Entity Object instance. For example, JboMandatoryAttributesValidator (if applicable) will be invoked here to perform null-value checks on mandatory attributes.

Applications should subclass this method to perform custom Entity-level validation and call super.validateEntity() to enable the framework to coordinate validation of detail Entities and validation via the declarative validators (that is, Entity validators declared at design-time).

In the case of composition, child Entities are validated from this method.

In the following example, code is added to validateEntity() to throw an exception if the value of the Emp.Ename attribute is "Jerome".

     public void validateEntity() {
       if (getEname().equals("Jerome"))
         throw new JboException("Name cannot be Jerome");
       super.validateEntity();
      }

If this Entity Object is marked invalid, validation is performed as follows:

Once all listeners are validated, this Entity Object is then marked valid.

This method should not be overridden. Custom validation logic should be implemented by overriding the validateEntity method, which can be invoked before or after calling super.validateEntity().

Specified by:
validate in interface Row
Specified by:
validate in interface ValidationListener
Specified by:
validate in interface ValidationManager
Specified by:
validate in class RowImpl

addToValidationListeners in interface ValidationManager
Parameters:
listener - the listener to be added.
See Also:
validate(), ValidationManager

setInvalid

protected void setInvalid()
A helper method that marks this Entity Object invalid and adds it to the ValidationListeners list of the validation manager to which this Entity Object belongs.

getContainerEntity

protected EntityImpl getContainerEntity()
Returns this entity's container in a composition association if any.


isValid

public boolean isValid()
Returns whether this Entity Object is valid.

An Entity Object is marked valid if it has been validated and not subsequently modified or set invalid.

Specified by:
isValid in interface Entity
Specified by:
isValid in interface ValidationListener
Returns:
true if this Entity Object is valid; false otherwise.

getAttributeValue

protected final java.lang.Object getAttributeValue(AttributeDefImpl attr)
Internal: Applications should not use this method.

Given an attribute definition object, this method gets the value for the attribute. This method should not be overridden; override getAttributeInternal instead.

Parameters:
attr - name of the attribute definition.
Returns:
value of the attribute.
See Also:
getAttributeInternal(int index)

getChangeIndicator

protected final java.lang.Object getChangeIndicator()
Gets the Change indicator attribute's value.

Change indicator columns can be used to indicate that a change has occurred to the underlying Entity Object since we last queried against it. They are typically implemented as TimeStamp or Version (number) columns in the underlying table that are changed by the Database each time the row is updated.

This method returns NULL if:

A change indicator is especially useful in Entity Objects that contain large objects, such as BLOBs. Comparing a change indicator on a row, is more convenient than comparing BLOBs.

Returns:
the value of the change indicator column or NULL if not present or applicable to this Entity Object.

getPrimaryKey

public Key getPrimaryKey()
Returns the primay key for this Entity Object's row. For example, if you are comparing two Entity Objects, you can compare the keys instead of comparing the Entities.

Typically, this method should not be overridden.

Specified by:
getPrimaryKey in interface Entity
Returns:
the primary key.

getAltKey

public Key getAltKey(int keyIndex)

getAttributeCount

public final int getAttributeCount()
Counts the number of attributes in this Entity Object.

The count includes persistent, transient, and association attributes. Attributes need not presently have values. This method will return the same value for all the Entity Object's rows.

This method should not be overridden.

The following code sample uses this method in a loop to retrieve and print Entity Object attribute names:

     //  Return the first Entity Object Row
     Row r = eo.first();
     // If we have a row, do this...
     if (r != null) {
        // Loop over the attributes in the Row and Print out the values
        for (int i = 0; i < eo.getAttributeCount(); i++ ) {
            String attrName = eo.getAttributeDef(i).getName();
            String attrVal  = r.getAttribute(i).toString();
            out.println(attrName + " = " +attrVal);
        }
     }
 

Specified by:

getAttributeInternal

protected java.lang.Object getAttributeInternal(int index)
Gets the attribute value by index. If the attribute is not already queried by using some View Object, fault-in all the attributes for this Entity Object and then return this attribute-value. For attributes that are association accessors, execute a Query if not already executed to return the associated Entities.

This method is not typically overridden. However, it could be overridden, for example, to return numeric values stored as integers, in a two-decimal format.

Specified by:
getAttributeInternal in class RowImpl
Parameters:
index - the index of the attribute.
Returns:
attribute value at given index.

A Convenience for writing a lot of code.


isAttributeChanged

protected boolean isAttributeChanged(int index)
Determines whether the attribute at the index been been changed.

Returns true if the the attribute has been changed since it was obtained from the Database. Note that if a Posting operation is performed, and the attribute value is sync'd with the database, that subsequent requests will return false, until the next time the attribute is changed.

Note that this method will return true if the value has been set to the same as the database value since it doesn't perform a value comparison.

After a Commit operation, the flag is also reset to false.

Parameters:
index - index of the attribute.
Returns:
true if the value of the attribute at the given index is changed from it's originally queried value.

isAttributeChanged

public final boolean isAttributeChanged(java.lang.String attrName)

isOrigDataEmpty

protected boolean isOrigDataEmpty()

getOrigData

protected java.lang.Object getOrigData(int index)

getPostedAttribute

protected java.lang.Object getPostedAttribute(int index)
Gets the value originally read for this attribute from the database.

If the attribute value at the specified index has been changed (whether to the same value or a new value), return the original value as read from the database on first query. The method invokes getAttributeInternal to return the original value.

This method should not be overridden.

Parameters:
index - index of the attribute.
Returns:
attribute value as currently posted in the database.

isAttributePopulated

public boolean isAttributePopulated(java.lang.String attributeName)
Determines whether the attribute specified by name is populated.

Parameters:
attributeName - the name of the attribute.
Returns:
true if the value of the attribute is currently populated.

isAttributePopulated

protected boolean isAttributePopulated(int index)
Determines whether the attribute at the specified index position is populated.

Parameters:
index - the attribute index.
Returns:
true if the value of the attribute at the given index is currently populated.

setLocked

protected void setLocked(boolean lockedState)
Sets the locked state.

This method is protected since users should call lock to place the row into the correct locked state.

Parameters:
lockedState - set to true to lock the row.

isLocked

public boolean isLocked()
Determines whether this Entity Object is locked.

An Entity Object is locked if its corresponding database row is locked. This method should not be overridden.

Specified by:
isLocked in interface Entity
Returns:
true if the row is locked; false otherwise.

markViewAccessorsDirty

protected void markViewAccessorsDirty(java.lang.String[] attrNames)
Overrides:
markViewAccessorsDirty in class RowImpl

donePostingAll

protected void donePostingAll(TransactionEvent e)

handlePostChangesError

protected void handlePostChangesError()
Called when a problem occurs while posting changes and restores an EntityImpl's state.

For example, when a user performs an operation (such as a commit) that posts changes, the framework will go through each EntityImpl instance that was modified during this transaction and call postChanges() to post the changes to database. If something goes wrong during this process and an exception is caught, then the framework notifies those EntityImpls by calling handlePostChangesError. The default implementation of handlePostChangesError essentially restores the EntityImpl's state.

In a composition post cycle, when the posting of one of the detail Entities throws an exception, the framework calls this method on the master Entity which internally calls this method on all of the composite Entities

A user can create a custom EntityImpl (by extending EntityImpl), and handle such an error differently from the default implemention by overriding handlePostChangesError and adding custom error-handling logic.

If this method is overridden, then the default implementation must be called with super.handlePostChangesError() to restore the Entity post states, as well as notify posted "child" Entities to handle post changes errors.


getAttributeIndexOf

public int getAttributeIndexOf(java.lang.String name)
Finds the index of the named attribute.

Specified by:
getAttributeIndexOf in interface AttributeList
Specified by:
getAttributeIndexOf in class RowImpl
Parameters:
name - an attribute name.
Returns:
the index associated with name.
Throws:
NoDefException - if this Entity Object does not have an attribute of the given name.

getAttributeNames

public java.lang.String[] getAttributeNames()
Description copied from interface: AttributeList
Returns an array of attribute names in this list.

Specified by:
getAttributeNames in interface AttributeList
Returns:
an array of attribute names.

getAttributeValues

public java.lang.Object[] getAttributeValues()
Description copied from interface: AttributeList
Returns an array of attribute values in this list.

Specified by:
getAttributeValues in interface AttributeList
Returns:
an array of attribute values.

revert

public void revert()
Reverts the row to the database's state.

Calling this method will either reset the attribute values to their database values or revert them to their default values. If the Entity Object is posted, all the attributes revert to the to unread state, so that a subsequent getAttribute call will refresh all attributes from the database.

Specified by:
revert in interface Entity
See Also:
getAttribute(int index)

refresh

public void refresh(int refMode)
Description copied from interface: Row
Refreshes the row's attributes with values from database. refreshMode should be a combination of REFRESH_.... See REFRESH_... constants for further information.

Specified by:
refresh in interface Row
Parameters:
refMode - the refresh mode.

lock

public void lock()
Locks the row.

If the row is new or already locked by this Entity Object, or if the transaction's locking mode is LOCK_NONE, this method has no effect.

If this Entity Object is contained by another (that is, it is part of a composition association and has a master Entity Object), this method locks the top-most Entity Object in the chain of containers before attempting to lock itself.

This method should not be overridden unless the application is maintaining Entity lock states.

Specified by:
lock in interface Row
Specified by:
lock in class RowImpl
Throws:
AlreadyLockedException - if the row is locked by another user or transaction.
DeadEntityAccessException - if the Entity Object is marked "unusable" or is STATUS_DEAD.

lockTopLevelEntity

protected void lockTopLevelEntity()
Locks the top-most Entity Object by getting the master Entity Object defined by composition associations, and walking-up the chain of containership. Since 9.0.3, the logic to walk up the hierarchy will stop either at the top or when a composition association is found that has the lockTopContainer flag turned off (to indicate a weak aggregation).


refreshFKInNewContainees

protected void refreshFKInNewContainees()
This method is invoked by SQLBuilder when one or more of the PrimaryKey attributes are marked refresh-on-insert and DML for this entity has been executed. In this method, this entity checks for existence of composition containees and if found, sets the foreign key attributes on these composed entities to the new values from this Entity.


addTransactionPostListener

public void addTransactionPostListener(TransactionPostListener listener)
Adds a listener to the list of post operation listeners. Typically, use this method to add the child Entities defined by composition associations to the master Entity's list of post listeners, once they are modified and validated. Can be called to add a detail Entity.

Parameters:
listener - the listener to be added.

addTransactionPostListenerNoCheck

public void addTransactionPostListenerNoCheck(TransactionPostListener listener)
Internal: Applications should not use this method.

Adds a listener to the list of post operation listeners without first checking it the Entity Object is already present. This method is faster than addTransactionPostListener, but should not be used if the listener might already be listed. Typically, child Entities defined by composition associations are added to this list, once they are modified and validated.

Parameters:
listener - the listener to be added.
See Also:
addTransactionPostListener(TransactionPostListener listener)

addToTransactionManager

protected void addToTransactionManager()
Adds this Entity object to its transaction manager (either another Entity object based on the containership model, or the transaction object for this session). This object maintains flags to indicate the status of the object's presence in the transaction manager's post-listener and transaction-listener lists, so as to avoid being in the list(s) more than once.

Subclasses that manage their own transaction ordering should invoke this method to add this Entity instance to its transaction manager instead of calling the manager's add methods.


removeTransactionPostListener

public void removeTransactionPostListener(TransactionPostListener listener)
Internal: Applications should not use this method.

Removes a listener from the list of post operation listeners.

Parameters:
listener - the listener to be removed.
See Also:
DBTransaction, ValidationManager

postChanges

public void postChanges(TransactionEvent e)
Initiates a post operation for this Entity Object.

Depending on the post-state of this Entity Object, this method calls doDML with the DML_DELETE, DML_UPDATE, or DML_INSERT flags.

In case this Entity Object is part of a composition association, this method calls postChanges on all Entities that are part of the TransactionPostListener list. Note that for delete, postChanges() on the child Entities are called before doDML() is called on this Entity Object. For updates and inserts, child Entities are posted after this Entity Object's doDML() is called.

The postChanges method calls doDML and manages the post state. To implement different behavior, it is recommended that developers override doDML or one of it's called methods (see javadoc for doDML), instead of postChanges. For example, the following code sample overrides doDML and uses postChanges to get the detail Entities and post them to the database.

   public void doDML(int operation, TransactionEvent e) {
      RowIterator details = getDetails();
      while (details.hasNext()) {
         ((EntityImpl)details.next()).postChanges(e);
      }
      super.doDML(operation, e);
   }
 

If the requirement is to only set attributes during the DML phase like say history attribute, then it should be done in prepareForDML() method so that it works consistently when this entity is posted in batch-mode or not. prepareForDML() method is invoked by the framework before doDML() and in case of post cycle from the transaction, the transaction calls prepareForDML() on all entities in the transaction list followed by doDML() on all those entities.

Specified by:
postChanges in interface TransactionPostListener
Parameters:

doDMLForCascadeUpdate

protected void doDMLForCascadeUpdate(TransactionEvent e,
                                     java.util.ArrayList tpl,
                                     java.util.ArrayList ecList,
                                     boolean startingEntity)
Advanced method: Applications should typically not use this method.

Special case DML for the case where PK attribute(s) are being updated for an entity which is also a master in an association which has cascade update turned on. In this case, the master needs to first clone it's row in the DB with the new Pk, move all the details to this new row with the new PK and then remove the existing mater row from the DB.

Note that this method should handle DML for this entity's composition children, if any. This list is passed in in 'tpl'.

Parameters:
e - TransactionEvent for this DML
tpl - An array of Transaction Listeners that conatins cascade updated details.
ecList - List of entities with batch mode turned on. This list is prepared by the framework and should not be 'modified'.
startingEntity - true if postChanges() was directly called on this entity.

populateAttribute

protected void populateAttribute(int index,
                                 java.lang.Object value)
Advanced method: Applications should not use this method.

Sets an attribute's value but does not mark it as updated. This method is called by query collection when populating a row with data. This is a framework-internal function and must not be called directly in client code except in the case of a composite Entity.

In a composite Entity, one Entity is comprised of two or more other Entities. An example of a composite Entity would be an Employee Entity which is comprised of a Person Entity and an Assignment Entity. The populateAttribute method could be used to populate Person and Assignment attributes when the Employee attributes are read-in.

Specified by:
populateAttribute in class RowImpl
Parameters:
index - the index of the attribute to populate.
value - the value to place in the attribute.

populateAttribute

protected void populateAttribute(int index,
                                 java.lang.Object value,
                                 boolean sendNotification,
                                 boolean markAsChanged)
Deprecated. since 9.0.5. Use populateAttribute(int index, Object value, boolean sendNotification, boolean markAsChanged, boolean saveOriginal) instead.

Advanced method: Applications should typically not use this method.

Sets an attribute's value and optionally mark it as updated and optionally send events to listeners about the change. Note that this method avoids all validations written in the attribute-setter or rules installed for this attribute.

Invoke this method from a sub-class if the sub-class is implementing it's own data-source. This method may also be used by a sub-class to implement refresh-on-update/refresh-on-insert features if the sub-class is implementing it's own data-sink.

Parameters:
index - a 1-based index into the columns.
value - the value for the column.
sendNotification - notify the dependent ViewObjects that this attribute has changed
markAsChanged - mark this attribute as changed so that it's picked up by doDML() for actual database updates.

populateAttribute

public void populateAttribute(int index,
                              java.lang.Object value,
                              boolean sendNotification,
                              boolean markAsChanged,
                              boolean saveOriginal)
Advanced method: Applications should typically not use this method.

Sets an attribute's value and optionally mark it as updated and optionally send events to listeners about the change. Note that this method avoids all validations written in the attribute-setter or rules installed for this attribute.

Invoke this method from a sub-class if the sub-class is implementing it's own data-source. This method may also be used by a sub-class to implement refresh-on-update/refresh-on-insert features if the sub-class is implementing it's own data-sink.

Parameters:
index - a 1-based index into the columns.
value - the value for the column.
sendNotification - notify the dependent ViewObjects that this attribute has changed
markAsChanged - mark this attribute as changed so that it's picked up by doDML() for actual database updates.
saveOriginal - indicates if this method should cache the original value of this attribute (as fetched) in the entity for refresh, lock and other usages. By default most callers should pass this flag as true when modifying an entity attribute value for updates (without affecting the entity states).

populateAttributeAsChanged

protected void populateAttributeAsChanged(int index,
                                          java.lang.Object value)
Advanced method: Applications should typically not call this method from their subclasses other then when performing programmatic attribute defaulting with proper attribute values.

Sets an attribute's value and also marks the attribute as changed in this row. Primary key attributes should not be set using populateAttribute apis.

This method is called by query collection when populating a row with data. This is a framework-internal function and must not be called directly in client code except in the case of a composite Entity or defaulting. This method avoids all programmatic and declarative validations on an attribute and still sets the data value for the attribute and marks the attribute as changed so that the value is posted during entity DML.

In a composite Entity, one enitity is comprised of two or more other Entities. An example of a composite Entity would be an Employee Entity which is comprised of a Person Entity and an Assignment Entity. The populateAttribute method could be used to populate Person and Assignment attributes when the Employee attributes are read-in.

This method does not change Entity Validation, Post or Transaction States. If this entity is not already marked invalid or not in the transaction's lists, this method will not mark the entity invalid or add it into transaction's lists.

Parameters:
index - the index of the attribute to populate.
value - the value to place in the attribute.
See Also:
populateAttribute(int index, Object value)

checkConsistency

protected boolean checkConsistency(SparseArray target,
                                   boolean lock)
Override this method to speed up comparing the attribute values of fetched entity data with this entity's data. This method is called when the entity is locked or when this entity is being faulted in and the entity is in un-modified state in a non-pessimistic transaction.

In builds before 10.1.2, this method was not called and for modified or removed Entities under optimisitic locking mode that were faulted in, did not go through this consistency check. They would simply faultin any db values on unmodified attributes. To achieve that old behavior, return true in this method's override, when the entity is modified or removed and lock parameter is sent in as false i.e., if (getPostState() != STATUS_UNMODIFIED && !lock) return true;

This method calls compare(SparseArray target) for comparision implementation.

This method returns true the return value from compare(target) call. If this method returns false, SQLBuilder will throw a RowInconsistentException to indicate difference in the database values for this entity.

Returns:
true if the data is the same; false otherwise.

compare

protected boolean compare(SparseArray target)
Compares the data in this row with that of another.

This method returns true if the values are "the same" and false if they are not.

This method uses the ChangeIndicator attribute, if it is present, for the comparison. If ChangeIndicator is not present, then this method compares the data for overlapping columns between the entity and the given array.

Applications should override this method to implement custom comparision of specific attributes and avoid deep comparision of every entity attribute (in case changeIndicator attribute is not defined in this entity). If ChangeIndicator attribute is present only that attribute is compared to check if the target data matches this Entity. Also, if the application has mutli-part ChangeIndicator, this method should be used to implement comparision of multi-part ChangeIndicator attributes to speedup comparision.

Returns:
true if the data is the same; false otherwise.

notifyAttributesChanged

protected void notifyAttributesChanged(int[] attrIndices,
                                       java.lang.Object[] values)

public void afterCommit(TransactionEvent e)
Description copied from interface: TransactionListener
Called to report that a Commit operation has occurred.

Specified by:
afterCommit in interface TransactionListener
Parameters:
e - a transaction event.

outputEventString

public void outputEventString(EventInvocation event)

eventsDebugOnly

public boolean eventsDebugOnly()
Indicates whether events are being tested. If it returns true, it implies that Fabric is not present and we should not attempt to actually raise the event. We should just dump its output for testing. If it returns false, the default, Fabric is assumed to be present and we will attempt to raise the appropriate events to Fabric. This is necessary to be able to have adequate error handling in the Fabric case while not interfering with the test case.


afterRollback

public void afterRollback(TransactionEvent e)
Internal: Applications should not call this method.

Initiates a state change and polls listeners following a rollback operation.

Resets the EntityState to STATUS_DEAD or STATUS_UNMODIFIED for new or updated/removed rows respectively. Sets other status flags for this Entity Object so that it behaves just like it was fetched for the first time from the database.

This method should not be overridden.

public boolean isPostedToDB()
Advanced: Most applications should not use this method. For non-oracle databases, indicates if this entity is posted. For use in custom SQLBuilder to check if this entity was posted in a previous post cycle.

Specified by:
isPostedToDB in interface TransactionPostListener

setPostedToDB

public void setPostedToDB(boolean b)
Advanced: Most applications should not use this method. For non-oracle databases that do not support savepoint, this method should be called from the custom sql builder to mark the entity as posted so that it's not posted again during a subsequent post cycle (if this entity was already posted but other entity/entities led to an exception in the current post cycle.

Specified by:
setPostedToDB in interface TransactionPostListener

getTransPostHandle

public int getTransPostHandle()
Advanced: Most applications should not use this method.

Implements the getTransPostHandle method for the transaction post listener (TransactionPostListener) interface.

Transaction post handle is a handle identifying a row object in the transaction post listener list. If the object does not have a transaction post handle, this method returns -1.

Specified by:
getTransPostHandle in interface TransactionPostListener
Returns:
the transaction post listener handle or -1, which means no transaction post handle.
See Also:

doSelect

protected void doSelect(boolean lock)
Advanced: Most applications should not use this method.

Performs SELECT/SELECT FOR UPDATE processing for the row. This method faults-in all column-values from the database object for this Entity Object.

This method can be overridden, for example, if you want to fill in the Entity Object values yourself.

Parameters:
lock - true generates a "SELECT for UPDATE"

doSelectForAltKey

protected void doSelectForAltKey(int keyIndex)

prepareForDML

protected void prepareForDML(int operation,
                             TransactionEvent e)
A pre-doDML() notification that allows subclasses to modify any attributes on this entity that should be updated in the database.

In case of batch mode, the modified entities in a Transaction are posted in two steps. First all entities are notified with prepareForDML() so that enties can make changes to any attributes like say history column that needs to be updated right before a DML occurs. Then the doDML() is called on the entities to execute the DML that includes any changes done to this entity during the prepareForDML() phase.

Incase of non-batch mode, postChanges() method on the Entity invokes prepareForDML() followed by doDML() for so that subclasses can consistently write custom setAttribute logic in prepareForDML() which will be posted to the database via a DML statement in doDML().

Parameters:
operation - the integer representation of DML_INSERT, DML_UPDATE, or DML_DELETE.
e - this Entity Object's transaction event.

prepareForBatchDML

protected void prepareForBatchDML(int operation,
                                  TransactionEvent te)
Advanced: Most applications should not use this method. A pre-doDML() step which calls prepareForDML() with the appropriate operation so that applications can perform attribute updates like history column etc.

This method also adjusts count of entities of a particular operation type to figure out if that operation has to be batched or not. Subclasses that override this method should call super.prepareForBatchDML() with the right operation type if this entity has consider batch operations.


doDML

protected void doDML(int operation,
                     TransactionEvent e)
Performs INSERT/UPDATE/DELETE processing for the row. Override this method to provide custom logic for processing inserts, updates, and deletes. Note, do not set any of this Entity's attributes in this method if this entity needs to work alike in both batch and non-batchmode cases. Perform all setAttributes that needs to done in postChanges() phase in prepareForDML().

This method calls buildDMLStatement() to build the DML string based on the DML operation to be performed. For insert and update, the DML statement will only set the values that have been modified/changed. Other attributes do not participate in the DML.

Next, bindDMLStatement() is called to bind the DML statement with values to be updated and any other where-clause and returning parameters. After this, it executes the jdbc-statement or adds the current DML as a batch operation into a batched jdbc-statement, to be executed in Transaction.postChanges().

Here is sample code for overriding the doDML() method of any Entity Object's EntityImpl class to invoke a stored procedure, and pass arguments. For example, given a PL/SQL stored procedure like:

 PROCEDURE updateDepartment( p_Deptno NUMBER,
                             p_Dname  VARCHAR2,
                             p_Loc    VARCHAR2 )
 

The code to call it when an Entity is updated would look like this: Note: The following code assumes only updates are possible, disallowing inserts and deletes by ignoring them in the doDML() method.

    public void doDML(int operation, TransactionEvent e) {
       // Don't call the superclass. This procedure handles only updates
       //super.doDML(operation, e);
       CallableStatement stmt = null;
       // ONLY Perform updates, this Entity won't allow inserts/deletes.
       if (operation == DML_UPDATE)
       {
         // Prepare JDBC CallableStatement with the Stored Procedure Call
         String updateStr = "{call updateDepartment(?,?,?)}";
         stmt = getDBTransaction().createCallableStatement(updateStr, 1);
         try
         {
            // Bind the Statement Parameters and Execute this Statement
            stmt.setString(1, getDeptno().toString());
            stmt.setString(2, getDname().toString());
            stmt.setString(3, getLoc().toString());
            stmt.execute();
          }
          catch (Exception ex)
          {
            throw new oracle.jbo.JboException(ex);
          }
          finally
          {
             try
             {
                stmt.close();
             }
             catch (Exception nex)
             {
          }
        }
      }
    }
 

Parameters:
operation - the integer representation of DML_INSERT, DML_UPDATE, or DML_DELETE.
e - this Entity Object's transaction event.

doDMLWithLOBs

protected void doDMLWithLOBs(int operation,
                             TransactionEvent e)
Performs INSERT/UPDATE/DELETE processing for Entity Objects that contain LOBs. This method is called by doDML when the Entity Object is found to contain LOBs.

The method uses a two stage process to first get the LOB locator, then post the LOB values individually. Typically, you would override this method when you want to take control over how to post the LOB.

Parameters:
operation - DML_INSERT, DML_UPDATE or DML_DELETE
e - this Entity Object's transaction event.
See Also:
doDML(int operation, TransactionEvent e)

vetoRemoveWithDetails

protected void vetoRemoveWithDetails(AttributeDef associationDef)
If this Entity Object is a master in a composition association, this method checks that all details have already been removed from the given association attribute. Typically, this method is used to effectively remove compositions.

Parameters:
associationDef - the association attribute defining the composition.
Throws:
RemoveWithDetailsException - if an attempt is made to remove the master Entity Object before removing its children.

remove

public void remove()
Removes the row from the database table.

In the case of a composition where this Entity is a master, this method calls vetoRemoveWithDetails with an Association attribute that defines the composition, to perform a check for existence of detail Rows.

Override this method to add your own business logic for the remove operation. For example, you can implement business logic that throws an exception that report why an Entity Object cannot be removed.

Specified by:
remove in interface Row
Specified by:
remove in class RowImpl
Throws:
RemoveWithDetailsException - if an attempt is made to is made to remove the master Entity Object before removing its children.

Specified by:
getKey in interface Row
Specified by:
getKey in class RowImpl
Returns:
the Primary Key.

isAttributeUpdateable

public boolean isAttributeUpdateable(int index)
Checks if the attribute is updateable. This method finds the attribute, given its index, then examines its updateable status which can be READ_ONLY, UPDATEABLE_WHILE_NEW, or UPDATEABLE.

This method can be overridden. For example, override this method if you want to check the updateable status and you have dependencies between two or more attributes.

Specified by:
isAttributeUpdateable in interface Row
Specified by:
isAttributeUpdateable in class RowImpl
Parameters:
index - the attribute's index (0-based).
Returns:
false if the attribute is READ_ONLY; true if attribute is UPDATEABLE or if the attribute is UPDATEABLE_WHILE_NEW and the current row is new.

                                             AttributeDefImpl[] attrs)
Applications may override this method to customize passivation of attributes by limiting or adding attributes to the given set.


notifyEntityActivated

protected void notifyEntityActivated(boolean bPostRequired)
Internal: Applications should not use this method.

Notification from the Transaction activation, when a new/inserted entity is activated from a passivation-store. By Default, this method posts this entity to the database if the bPostRequired argument is true, so that subsequent View Objects that are activated will see the new rows when their query is executed. This flag is true when this entity is a top-most entity in a composition and it is a new/inserted entity or one of it's primary key constituent attributes were modified before this entity was passivated.


handleActivatedRowNotFound

protected boolean handleActivatedRowNotFound()
Returns true if this entity row that is not found anymore in the database (may have been deleted in the database), should be added to the entity-cache on activation. Most Applications may log a warning and return false to silently ignore the deleted row. Some Applications may return true to add the entity and on post a RowAlreadyDeletedException will be thrown for this entity.

By default this method returns true so that this entity is cached in the entity cache.


readAttrsFromXML

protected boolean readAttrsFromXML(Element rowElt,
                                   AttributeDefImpl[] attrs,
                                   int ChangeState)
Advanced: Applications should not use this method. * Reads all the attribute values from the xml-element and sets them into this row. If the xml has a process instruction of the form: then, invokes remove() on this row.

At the entity layer, the two meaningful values for this state are: XMLInterface.XML_OPT_CHANGES_ONLY or XMLInterface.XML_OPT_ALL_ROWS As of 904, if the value is CHANGES_ONLY, then the entity is being passivated/activated during the ApplicationModule passivation/activation call. Otherwise the entity is being activated due to commitAndSync() call triggered to sync up all AMs in a pool with the latest commits from the AM in hand.

Returns:
true when the row is good to be added into cache/collection. Returns false when this row has been removed based on the xml element being read.

readXML

public final void readXML(Element elem,
                          int changeState)
Reads the content of the row and updates the attributes, from given xml document. If there's a process instruction in the row like: then calls remove on this row.

Specified by:
readXML in interface XMLInterface
Specified by:
readXML in class RowImpl
Parameters:
elem - name of the XML element.
changeState - the number of child levels deep to which data should be read.

doRefreshSQL

protected void doRefreshSQL(int operation,
                            java.util.ArrayList refreshAttrs)
This method is called after the entity is posted to the database to refresh the required attributes. This method is called for entities that have refresh-on-insert or refresh-on-update attributes in the following cases: In both cases however, if refresh-on-insert or update setting is set on an attribute which is a primary key attribute, then this method will fail to fetch the entity as the primary key in the database for the equivalent row would have potentially changed. If that's true, then subclasses need to implement this method and perform "custom" sql to fetch the refresh-attrs based on some unique criteria for this entity.


getRefreshSQLKeyAttrs

protected AttributeDefImpl[] getRefreshSQLKeyAttrs(int operation)
Returns an array of AttributeDefImpl containing attributes that should be used in the where-clause (as key columns) when a select statement is executed to fetch refresh-on attributes.

If the primary key attributes do not have refresh-on flag set for the given operation (Insert or Update), then these attributes are returned.

If one or more of the primary key attributes are also refresh-on-insert or update attributes and unique-key attributes are set on this entity, then this method returns an array of unique-key attributes. If not, then a warning is printed on the diagnostic and this method returns an array of primary keys.

Subclasses should override this method to return a customized list of attributes to use to create a where-clause for the select statement to be used to fetch refresh-on attributes. This method is called for entities that have refresh-on-insert or refresh-on-update attributes in the following cases:


buildRefreshSQL

protected AttributeDefImpl[] buildRefreshSQL(java.lang.StringBuffer sqlBuffer,

handleEffectiveDateOperations

protected void handleEffectiveDateOperations()
Before posting the row to the database this method is invoked for effective date book-keeping. For Entity Rows that are created for the first time, the Effective Date values are populated. Entity row update may cause an effective date split. Entity row delete may cause more than one physical row to be deleted. If the Effective Date mode is set to Expert mode the framework assumes that the client has populated all the required values and effective date logic need not be applied. For more information about Effective Date Update and Delete modes refer to setEffectiveDateMode.


validateDateEffectivity

public void validateDateEffectivity()
Validates the Effective Date aspects of an Entity to ensure that gaps or overlaps are not introduced. If the Entity is updated, created or deleted in expert mode no effective date validation is performed.
