ENW EndNote. Navigating to an unloaded relationship on a persistent entity will trigger additional database queries to fetch the relationship on demand. A downside of the Open Session in View pattern is that the persistence-context object is effectively scoped to a user request.

Consequently, entities stored in Servlet scopes other than the current request are always detached. Flow-managed persistence Application development in Spring Web Flow is based on the concept of the Web flow, which typically represents a sole use case. In many instances, data changes throughout a Web flow are required to be atomic, meaning that changes made at different stages of the flow either save as a whole to the backend database, or cancel out completely with no trace left in the database.

OptimisticLockingFailureException in flow-managed persistence Optimistic locking is an extremely efficient concurrency control method that guarantees data integrity without placing any physical lock in the database. While not enforced, optimistic locking is highly recommended in flow-managed persistence.

The persistence context checks entity versions at flush time, throwing an OptimisticLockingFailureException StaleObjectException in Hibernate if it detects concurrent modification. The longer an entity lives in memory, the more likely its corresponding database value will be modified by other processes.

In the Open Session in View pattern, as previously mentioned, the persistent state of the entities is subject to the user request. Entities keep their persistent state across multiple user requests in flow-managed persistence.

The Definitive Guide to Spring Web Flow

The trick is to handle the OptimisticLockingFailureException gracefully, just as you would any checked business exception. This is true even though OptimisticLockingFailureException is a runtime exception that rolls back the database transaction.

Common strategies are to present the user with an opportunity to merge his changes or to restart the flow with non-stale data. The object is disconnected from the underlying JDBC connection when waiting for a user request and reconnected when serving a user request.

The same persistence-context object is reused during the course of the entire flow, eliminating detached-entity state and the corresponding LazyInitializationException. The persistence context is also bound to the current request thread and exposed to developers in two different flavors: as an implicit variable persistenceContext or injected into any Spring bean via the JPA PersistenceContext annotation.

Types of persistence context: Transaction or extended The PersistenceContext annotation has an optional attribute type, which defaults to PersistenceContextType. You have to use this default setting when programming with a flow-scoped persistence context.

In that case the injected transaction-bound persistence-context object is just a shared proxy that transparently delegates to the actual thread-bound persistence context of the flow scope.

Selecting the other option, PersistenceContextType.

EXTENDED, results in a so-called "extended entity manager", which is not thread-safe and must not be used in concurrently accessed components such as singleton Spring beans.

Interestingly, a Seam conversation is typically implemented with an extended entity manager injected into a stateful session bean EJB.

That is a noticeable difference between Spring Web Flow's flow-managed persistence and a Seam conversation. The flow-scoped persistence-context object may be used in conjunction with the Transactional annotation to fine-tune the persistence characteristics of a flow. Transaction semantics The Transactional annotation, part of the Spring Core package, specifies the transaction semantics of the annotated class or method. According to the Spring development team, Transactional is better applied to concrete classes than interfaces.

JPA 1. Moreover, Hibernate uses this setting as a database hint against certain database types for optimized query performance.

How to access the Spring WebFlow from Spring MVC

Read-Committed is the minimum level required for optimistic locking to work. It is possible to customize the default semantics through these four rollback attributes.

The Spring Core's robust transaction infrastructure makes transaction management easier in most real-world development scenarios. In the sections that follow, we'll see how Spring Web Flow makes use of the Spring transaction infrastructure in conjunction with its own flow-scoped persistence-context object to handle persistence programming in a variety of Web flows, including some use cases that demonstrate the limitations of flow-managed persistence.

Atomic Web flows Flow-managed persistence is intended to address Spring Web Flow use cases that are considered atomic from the perspective of transactions. For instance, let's say that you have an online banking system that allows a user to move his money from a checking account to a savings account or a to-be-created CD account. The transaction has to be conducted in several steps: The user selects a checking account to be transferred. The system displays the account balance.

The user enters the amount to be transferred. The user selects a savings or CD account as the target. The system displays a summary of the transaction for review.

The user decides to commit or cancel the transaction. Due to the obvious concurrency requirement, you would first enable optimistic locking on entity classes. ALL attribute. Non-transactional data access in Web flows In Spring Web Flow, all data access, by default, is non-transactional.

For non-transactional data access, Hibernate sets the auto-commit mode of the underlying database to true, such that each SQL statement is immediately executed in its own "short transaction", commit or rollback.

From an application perspective, a database short transaction is equivalent to no transaction at all. More critical, Hibernate disables the default FlushMode. AUTO for non-transactional operations. It effectively works as FlushMode.

Disabling FlushMode.

Upon entry to the end state, the flow is terminated. Enables flushing of changes when the flow ends. Used with a transaction manager wired into a flow execution listener.

Specifying the Start State By default, the flow executor starts the flow at the first state it finds in the flow definition XML file. As a flow executes, it transitions from one state to another state, performing some action, making some decision, or displaying some output at each step of the way.

As mentioned before, there are five kinds of state in Spring Web Flow. May optionally execute one or more actions in the course of the transition. And, although no transitions are declared here, there may be some global transitions in play allowing the flow to transition away from this state. Explicitly specifying the view The convention of assuming a view name that is the same as the view state's ID is convenient.

The on attribute specifies the name of an event that should trigger the transition. Leaving off the on attribute causes a transition to take place regardless of what event occurs.If a flush ever happened during the rendering of different views, there would be no chance to accomplish the deferred flush at the end of the flow. Entities keep their persistent state across multiple user requests in flow-managed persistence.

For instance, let's say that you have an online banking system that allows a user to move his money from a checking account to a savings account or a to-be-created CD account. Seam conversations are ad-hoc and that causes a lot of problems for some people.

Data changes made during every user request would need to be saved. The flow-scoped persistence-context object may be used in conjunction with the Transactional annotation to fine-tune the persistence characteristics of a flow.

It is hard to unit-test JSF-based frameworks because they have to be executed in a container. Here are a few more things you may want to do with a transition.
