Drop-and-create-tables in OpenJPA
Toplink had a useful drop-and-create-tables options which made unit testing a lot easier because you always new you were testing a fresh database. Well, I've been trying to do the same thing in OpenJPA and couldn't figure it out until I found this JIRA issue: OPENJPA-94.
The nearest equivalent in OpenJPA is the following obscure setting:
It is actually faster than the Toplink method because the tables aren't recreated, they are just updated and emptied. It'd just be nice if it had a sensible name, and appeared in the docs somewhere!Drop-and-create-tables in OpenJPA
I guess I'd call myself a problem solver. Either that, or I'm some sort of organic machine designed to convert oxygen into carbon dioxide. You could go either way on that. I'm into languages and stuff. I wrote a book. It's okay, I guess. What else? I like reading, swimming, eating, and playing music. Satisfied? Sheesh.
