Dieter,

This is fine for me I believe. I only needed to have a copy of an object for a short while after the ZODB connection has closed with no intention of ever inserting it back into zodb. Out of curiousity, what would be the proper way to accomplish this task?


Thanks for your time, everyone.

Regards,
Kenneth Miller

Personally, I'd be afraid to use deepcopy on a persistent object.

A deepcopy is likely to be no copy at all.

 As Python's "deepcopy" does not know about object ids, it is likely
 that the copy result uses the same oids as the original.
 When you store this copy, objects with the same oid are identified.

If you are lucky, then the ZODB recognizes the problem (because,
it is unable to store two different objects (the result of the "deepcopy")
with the same oid in its cache.
