Subject [jira] [Created] (CAY-1707) Modeler doesn't allow duplicate DbEntity names in different DataMaps
Date Thu, 17 May 2012 18:52:08 GMT
Bryan Lewis created CAY-1707:

             Summary: Modeler doesn't allow duplicate DbEntity names in different DataMaps
                 Key: CAY-1707
             Project: Cayenne
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Modeler
    Affects Versions: 3.0.2
         Environment: Mac OSX, Java 1.6 (shouldn't matter)
            Reporter: Bryan Lewis
            Priority: Minor

As discussed on the user list today...  I learned how to include two databases in one domain,
thanks to a clue from Michael Gentry.  One domain with two DataMap/DataNode pairs.  I mistakenly
thought all the table names had to be unique because the Modeler wouldn't let me rename one
of the DbEntities to the same name as one in the other DataMap.  It turned the "DbEntity name"
field red and showed a tooltip "There is another entity with the name..."

It is possible for two tables to have the same name in different DataMaps, as I found out
by editing the xml file directly.  The edited file worked fine in the Modeler and at runtime.
