Functional Specification: Dali Support for JPA 2.0 Element Collection mapping

Feedback

bug 258490 - element collection support


Document History

Date Author Version Description & Notes
12-9-2009 Karen Butzke Draft

Project overview

This feature covers the element collection mapping in the JPA 2.0 spec as well as any EclipseLink extensions.

Goals:

  • Add Generic 2.0 support for Element Collection
  • Add EclipseLink 3.0 support for Element Collection with relevant extensions
  • Provide the appropriate defaults and validation for these settings

Concepts

Present any concepts relevant to the feature.

EclipseLink Element Collection Functional Spec

Requirements / Functionality

Element Collection with Basic Type

  • target-class - defaults to type of the Collection if generic, must be specified otherwise
  • fetch - defaults to Lazy
  • collection-table and @CollectionTable
    • name defaults to <Entity name>_<attribute name>
  • column and @Column
    • name default to attribute name
    • table defaults to collection table name and is not editable
    • temporal @Temporal, enumerated @Enumberated, lob @Lob, convert @Convert (EclipseLink)

Element Collection with Embeddable Type

  • target-class - defaults to type of the Collection if generic, must be specified otherwise
  • fetch - defaults to Lazy
  • collection-table and @CollectionTable
    • name defaults to <Entity name>_<attribute name>
  • Attribute and Association override names are derived from the Embeddable type


Element Collection Embeddable Type Details

Element Collection Map Basic Key and Basic Value

  • target-class - defaults to type of the Map value if generic, must be specified otherwise
  • map-key-class and @MapKeyClass - defaults to the type of the Map key if generic, must be specified otherwise and if MapKey is not
  • map-key and @MapKey - this and MapKeyClass are mutually exclusive
  • fetch - defaults to Lazy
  • collection-table and @Collection Table
    • Name defaults to <Entity name>_<attribute name>
  • Value column definition
    • column and @Column
    • temporal @Temporal, enumerated @Enumberated, lob @Lob, convert @Convert (EclipseLink)
  • Key column definition
    • map-key-column and @MapKeyColumn
    • map-key-temporal and @MapKeyTemporal
    • map-key-enumerated and @MapKeyEnumerated
    • map-key-convert and @MapKeyConvert
  • Validation errors:
    • MapKey and MapKeyClass are both specified


Element Collection Map with Basic Key and Basic Value Details

ElementCollectionMapBasicKeyAndValue.jpg

Element Collection Map Embeddable Key and Basic value

  • target-class - defaults to type of the Map value if generic, must be specified otherwise
  • fetch - defaults to Lazy
  • collection-table and @Collection Table
    • Name defaults to <Entity name>_<attribute name>
  • map-key-class and @MapKeyClass - defaults to the type of the Map key if generic, must be specified otherwise and if MapKey is not
  • map-key and @MapKey - this and MapKeyClass are mutually exclusive
  • Value column definition
    • column and @Column
    • temporal @Temporal, enumerated @Enumberated, lob @Lob, convert @Convert (EclipseLink)
  • Key overrides
    • In Xml use map-key-attribute-override and map-key-association-override
    • In Java use AttributeOverride(name="key.<name>") and AttributeOverride(name="value.<name>)
