Subject Re: iBATIS 3.0 selectOne SessionException if no data found
Date Thu, 27 Aug 2009 13:42:55 GMT
1. @Rick: Thank you for your solution, I will use it.
2. @Clinton: No, I don't want NULL, an exception 
is the right approach. But the exception needs to 
have reliable information about the specific 
cause, just like the SqlState field in 
SqlException, so that one can differentiate 
between an expected situation (no data for the 
given key) and other ("real") errors (database disappeared...).

BTW, I love the 3.0 version so far...
