I'm using TENEO and hibernate on a very large model and complex
relationships (references).
I want to create a class that gives me all the parent instances that
reference one specific child instance.
For example:
Let assume I have an eCore model that represent a car. The engine (one
class) as a reference (association) to screw (common class) that is used
in the engine. The same for the transmission, AC and etc. That means
in the model the class instance "screw1" is referenced by many other
instances of the other classes.
If I have an instance of "screw1", I want to find out which instance
references this "screw1" (for example write a report if the screw
changes which component gets impacted - engine transmission and etc.).

Since my database is large, I disabled the Hibernate option to load all
top classes when a new resource is created.
I used the utility EcoreUtil.UsageCrossReference.find(<screw1>,
resourceSet), but it does not return any information.

How can I search the entire database to find all the references to a
single instance?

Thanks
Yigal

Hi Yigal,
The datastore has the getCrossReferencers method for that.
When the datastore is initialized it analyzes the internal datamodel and for each reference creates
the query required to get the refered-to. The getCrossReferencers method re-uses this information to
query the db.
Note that if the amount of referees can be very large then getCrossReferencers can still be
performance intensive.
A possible improvement can be that you also pass the maximum number of objects you want to receive
back. So that the search can be limited or stops earlier.

Hi Martin,
This is the exact methid I'm looking for. Can you help with some sample
code?
I tried the following code:

// Get the data store from valid repository
HbDataStore dStore = myRepository.getDataStore ();
// Open a session
Session sc = ds.getSessionFactory().openSession();
// Get referencers
Object [] objs = ds.getCrossReferencers(sc, screw1);

When I run this I get ZERO items, regardless for number of references.

Any ideas?

Thanks
Yigal

Hi Yigal,
No special ideas, the way you use it is fine. I would debug into the getCrossReferencers method to
see what it does/why it does not work.

Hi Martin,
Thanks for the advise, I debug the code and here is what I found:
My "screw" class extends the class called "Part". Since the engines has
different parts, I keep a reference list of "Parts" for the engine.

So when I run the getCrossReferencers, the method search for "Screw"
class, while the only reference list is a "Part". If I change the value
from screw to part the method returns the correct engine value.

DO you have any ideas how to call the getCrossReferencers with an object
but make it look make it look for the parent class as well?
Should I rewrite the method?

Thanks
Yigal

Hi Yigal,
This should work fine for the subclass also. The computeReferers ends up in the setRefersToOfSupers
method, this method should copy all found references from the parent class to subclass. Can you
check/debug why it does not do that for the subclass?

Hi Martin,
I Debug through the initialization code in the HbDataStore class.
When it builds the refers to supper class list, there is an issue with
the code:

(on line 932) the code is:
if (classDone.contains(eclass)) {
return refersTo.get(eclass);
}
In my case, the "screw" as a supper that is a "Part". The "Part" was
already in the list of classDone so the classDone.contains returns true.
However the refertTo does not have it so it returns a NULL and therefore
the method addUnique fails becuase the list is empty. (l2 == null);

It seems to me the code needs to validate that the class is in refersTo
and not just in classDone.

Martin,
Looking at other section of the code it seems to me that the code should be:
(on line 932) the code is:
if (classDone.contains(eclass)) {
return refersTo.get(ens.toEntityName(eclass));
}

Hi Yigal,
I had missed this post. The change you propose was made a few months back (build,
0.8.0.I200802110503). So using a later build should solve this.

Hi Yigal,
The datastore has the getCrossReferencers method for that.
When the datastore is initialized it analyzes the internal datamodel and for each reference creates
the query required to get the refered-to. The getCrossReferencers method re-uses this information to
query the db.
Note that if the amount of referees can be very large then getCrossReferencers can still be
performance intensive.
A possible improvement can be that you also pass the maximum number of objects you want to receive
back. So that the search can be limited or stops earlier.

Hi Martin,
This is the exact methid I'm looking for. Can you help with some sample
code?
I tried the following code:

// Get the data store from valid repository
HbDataStore dStore = myRepository.getDataStore ();
// Open a session
Session sc = ds.getSessionFactory().openSession();
// Get referencers
Object [] objs = ds.getCrossReferencers(sc, screw1);

When I run this I get ZERO items, regardless for number of references.

Any ideas?

Thanks
Yigal

Hi Yigal,
No special ideas, the way you use it is fine. I would debug into the getCrossReferencers method to
see what it does/why it does not work.

Hi Martin,
Thanks for the advise, I debug the code and here is what I found:
My "screw" class extends the class called "Part". Since the engines has
different parts, I keep a reference list of "Parts" for the engine.

So when I run the getCrossReferencers, the method search for "Screw"
class, while the only reference list is a "Part". If I change the value
from screw to part the method returns the correct engine value.

DO you have any ideas how to call the getCrossReferencers with an object
but make it look make it look for the parent class as well?
Should I rewrite the method?

Thanks
Yigal

Hi Yigal,
This should work fine for the subclass also. The computeReferers ends up in the setRefersToOfSupers
method, this method should copy all found references from the parent class to subclass. Can you
check/debug why it does not do that for the subclass?

Hi Martin,
I Debug through the initialization code in the HbDataStore class.
When it builds the refers to supper class list, there is an issue with
the code:

(on line 932) the code is:
if (classDone.contains(eclass)) {
return refersTo.get(eclass);
}
In my case, the "screw" as a supper that is a "Part". The "Part" was
already in the list of classDone so the classDone.contains returns true.
However the refertTo does not have it so it returns a NULL and therefore
the method addUnique fails becuase the list is empty. (l2 == null);

It seems to me the code needs to validate that the class is in refersTo
and not just in classDone.

Martin,
Looking at other section of the code it seems to me that the code should be:
(on line 932) the code is:
if (classDone.contains(eclass)) {
return refersTo.get(ens.toEntityName(eclass));
}
