EclipseLink and Hessian - IndirectList problem [message #548021] Tue, 20 July 2010 12:57 Go to next message

I don't want the client to have any dependencies to the persistence API.
The problem is, that EclipseLink uses IndirectList as List
implementation which is not known to the client without the dependency.
Thus, the client fails to deserialize the objects send by the server:

Is this an error in my EclipseLink setup or is this intentional? What
solutions are there other than adding the dependency to the client? For
example, is there a way to tell EclipseLink which List implementation to

I inherited the project and I'm only beginning to dive into EclipseLink.
So please point me to any tutorial I might have missed or tell me, what
additional information you need.

Lazy fetching of collection mappings (OneToMany, ManyToMany) is considered a performance benifit in most cases, and is the default in JPA. As a result, JPA providers supporting loading must use their own collection implementations to delay the fetch until it is required. If you do not have the providers jar files in the client, you will get this problem unless you mark the mapping as eager, ie:

Thank you very much Chris. That did it. Since we serialize the objects
on the server, lazy fetching is ineffective anyways. So fetch=EAGER
serves us well in removing the dependency from the client.
