Interface Summary
AttributeContainer This interface defines methods that are required for an object to support the nested "attribute" tag in the repository file.
FieldType OJB implements the mapping conventions for JDBC as specified by the JDBC 3.0 specification and this class representing the jdbc java types of the sql types mappings - e.g.
JdbcType Represents a jdbc sql type object defined by the JDBC 3.0 specification to handle data conversion (see JDBC 3.0 specification Appendix B, Data Type Conversion Tables).
MetadataConfiguration  
RepositoryElements This interface contains integer constants representing the elements of a DescriptorRepository.
XmlCapable This interface must be implemented by classes that need to be marshalled in XML form.
 

Class Summary
AnonymousFieldDescriptor  
ArgumentDescriptor An ArgumentDescriptor contains information that defines a single argument that is passed to a procedure/function.
AttributeDescriptorBase Is the base class for all other attribute descriptors.
ClassDescriptor A ClassDescriptor contains all information for mapping objects of a given class to database tables.
CollectionDescriptor mapping Description for member fields that are Collections
Note: Be careful when use references of this class or caching instances of this class, because instances could become invalid (see MetadataManager).
ConnectionDescriptorXmlHandler The handler catches Parsing events raised by the xml-parser and builds up the ConnectionRepository that is used within the OJB.
ConnectionPoolDescriptor Encapsulates connection pooling and JDBC-driver configuration properties managed by JdbcConnectionDescriptor.
ConnectionRepository  
DeleteProcedureDescriptor An DeleteProcedureDescriptor contains information that is related to the procedure/function that is used to handle the deleting of existing records.
DescriptorRepository The repository containing all object mapping and manipulation information of all used persistent objects.
FieldDescriptor A FieldDescriptor holds the mapping information for a specific member-variable of a persistent object.
FieldHelper HelperClass for Fields, used for orderBy, groupBy
IndexDescriptor  
InsertProcedureDescriptor An InsertProcedureDescriptor contains information that is related to the procedure/function that is used to handle the insertion of new records.
JdbcConnectionDescriptor JdbcConnectionDescriptor describes all relevant parameters of JDBC Connections used by the PersistenceBroker.
JdbcMetadataUtils This class provides some utility functions to OJB for working with JDBC metadata.
JdbcTypesHelper Helper class which provide all supported JdbcType classes (based on the Types) as inner classes.

MetadataManager Central class for metadata operations/manipulations - manages OJB's metadata objects, in particular: DescriptorRepository contains metadata of persistent objects ConnectionRepository contains all connection metadata information This class allows transparent flexible metadata loading/manipulation at runtime.
ObjectCacheDescriptor Encapsulates a ObjectCache implementation class and its proprietary configuration properties.
ObjectReferenceDescriptor Describes a Field containing a reference to another class.
ProcedureDescriptor A ProcedureDescriptor contains information that is common for all types of procedures/functions that are used to handle the persistence operations.
RepositoryPersistor This class is responsible for reading and writing DescriptorRepository objects from and to persistent media.
RepositoryTags this class maintains a table mapping the xml-tags used in the repository.dtd to their corresponding ids used within OJB.
RepositoryXmlHandler The handler catches Parsing events raised by the xml-parser and builds up the DescriptorRepository that is used within the OJB PersistenceBroker System.
SequenceDescriptor Encapsulates sequence manager configuration properties managed by JdbcConnectionDescriptor.
SuperReferenceDescriptor This class handle inheritance as 1-1 association based on a anonymous field (no field in persistent object needed).
SuperReferenceDescriptor.SuperReferenceField  
UpdateProcedureDescriptor An UpdateProcedureDescriptor contains information that is related to the procedure/function that is used to handle the updating of existing records.
 

Exception Summary
ClassNotPersistenceCapableException This exception is thrown if a class is not described in the MetaData Repository, and thus cannot be handled properly by OJB
MetadataException This exception is thrown if a MetaData related problem occurs.
