Subject Re: Deleting a row in the childtable
Date Thu, 24 Aug 2006 15:43:21 GMT
The simple answer is "You don't - there is not an 'iBATIS way' to do this."

You can however do a couple of things.

In your database, you can define cascading deletes, so that when you
delete a parent, you delete the children, too.

You can also (on some databases) execute multiple statements in one
mapped statement. For example using Oracle, you could do this:

<delete id="delete">
  DELETE FROM Child WHERE parentId=#parentId#;
  DELETE FROM Parent WHERE parentId=#parentId#;


PS: I just noticed that this is the CS list, not the java list - that
mapped statement is from an example I had using the Java syntax, which
iirc, is the same, but if not...sorry. ;-)
