Possible issue with String fields



I'm brand new to objectdb and I'm trying to create an objectdb from a sample db via jdbc.

The code all works and for a few thousand records but when I increase the number of records I get the following

Exception in thread "main" [ObjectDB 2.3.7_15] javax.persistence.RollbackException
Failed to commit transaction: String index out of range: 5 (error 613)

... 1 more
Java Result: 1

When I comment out the fields that are strings all works out fine. I tried replacing the jdbc field with something like

booking.external_booking_ref = "TEST SdsfdfgdfgdfgdgdfTR ";

and it still blows up.

My entity looks like this ..

public class av_booking implements Serializable  {
  @Id @GeneratedValue
  private long id;

  String company_pkey;
  String external_booking_ref;
  Date start_dt;
  Date end_dt;
  Date new_end_dt;
  String vehicle_group;
  String vehicle_identifier;
  Integer version_no;
  Integer possible_extension;
  Integer cancelled;
  Integer booking_status;
  String check_out_location;
  Long av_version_no;
  String calculated_vehicle_group;
  public av_booking() {


We will be taking a big jump from the delphi/interbase world to the Java world. Objectdb seems a logical choice to me if we can get it working ..

Can anyone help please ?

Thank you

It seems as a regression bug (added in build 2.3.7_14) in handling temporary file path.

Please try build 2.3.7_16 that should fix it. If it doesn't - please try build 2.3.7_13.

When you increase the number of records in a transaction ObjectDB has to use temporary files. Even after a fix, it would be better if possible to avoid temporary file (to improve efficiency), e.g. by dividing a large transaction to smaller transactions, using only enhanced classes, and clearing the EntityManager at transaction end.

Great support .. thanks for the timely response !


That fixed it..

Have now split transactions into batches of 1000 recs .... 370,000 transfered over in under 18 seconds ... and I'm running windows inside a VM !




Thank you for this report and for the update.

To get best performance make sure that your classes are enhanced.
