 Description  « Hide

Build AS9.1 beta 33c.

The data direct driver packaged in the AS9.1 beta is version 3.60.7. When this
driver is used in generating identity primary key, exceptions were thrown:
[java] Exception Description: Cannot persist detached object
[java] Class> ejb30.persistence.datatypes.ejb.DataTypes Primary Key> [0]
[java] at
[java] at

When switched to use sybase j-connect driver (jconn2.jar), the same test passed.

Added Mitesh and Marina to the cc list.

The test uses following table

After inserting data into the table, Toplink is using SELECT @@IDENTITY to
retrieve the value of inserted ID column. I think datadirect is misbehaving here

This issue is a bit ugly but turns out to be the result of the default behavior for
DataDirect drivers on Sybase where it creates a stored procedure for every
parameterized PreparedStatement.

To change the default driver behavior, set the following property:


This disables the creation of the stored procedures.

The problem still exists in 9.1pe_b55 promoted.
Can this solution or workaround be documented?
With Sybase DD driver, set "PrepareMethod=direct" property in
domain.xml when ... ??? (generating identity primary key).

Re-open it for docs after Ming and I discussed it with Lance.

Not a as91ur1 show stopper.

"Reclassifying as P4 because this issue is not deemed "must fix" for this v2.1
release whose primary release driver is SailFin.
This issue will be scrubbed after this release and will be given the right
priority for the next release."

Mike, please determine if this issue should be fixed in 3.1.1, resolved, or closed.

Bulk update to change fix version to "not determined" for all issues still open but with a fix version for a released version.
