Hello! I have a PC container class that holds another PC class as a field, and the field has a unique id constraint.
When inserting the container class into the DB (it is loaded from an external source), I first check to see if the field already exists in the DB and, if so, I attach it to the containing class. For example: ContainerClass container = getContainerClass(); FieldClass unmanagedField = container.getField(); FieldClass managedField = getFieldFromDb( unmanagedField ); if( managedField != null ) container.setField( managedField ); insertContainerClassIntoDb(); However, I am getting an exception that complains about a duplicate key constraint. My assumption was that since the field is already managed, it would not be re-inserted by the framework. To accomplish what I'm trying to do, what state do I need to put the PC field into so it does not get re-inserted? [BTW, I am currently using JPox as my JDO2 implementation. I was told there to ask on this list about what the specs say should be done.] Thank you!
