SQL repository implements both repository and audit API. It facilitates Hibernate 5 as persistence framework, and for connection pooling HikariCP (previously c3p0).
Audit records are stored synchronously and implementation currently shares connection pool with main repository. There are few planned improvements for audit, see MID-4745.
Repository component configuration is placed in main
config.xml file in
midpoint.home folder. Basic configuration is quite simple. It will use embedded H2 database which will be placed in midpoint.home folder.
For more complex configurations using different DB vendors see Repository Configuration.
DB tables, structures
Our data objects defined in common-3.xsd schema which are managed by SQL repository are quite complex. They are stored in
m_object table in
fullObject column as blobs. Parts of these objects are stored in related tables for better searching.
PrismObject represented as XML objects contain one natural primary key - oid attribute. Some objects also contain PrismContainers which use id as container identifier (assignments, inducements, triggers, etc.). Identifiers for objects and containers are generated in midPoint. Object references introduced in XSD schema are transformed to entities with weak reference which means reference doesn't use foreign key to achieve full consistency across midPoint repository. This will simplify work with objects during import or delete as it's not necessary to correctly sort objects before making any changes. To further improve hibernate performance we've introduced
EntityState interface. This interface is used within most entities. Developer knows in most cases whether entity is transient or detached, therefore hibernate doesn't need to do any checks (we'll get rid of many unnecessary select queries).
Storing xsd:any attributes
xsd:any container can be found in:
- ObjectType - extension (and subclasses)
- ShadowType - attributes
- AssignmentType - extension
Schema for extension containers is static for first and third case. ShadowType attributes use dynamic schema which depends on defined resources. Extension container can contain elements of different types. SQL repository supports
String, Long, Date, Clob, ObjectReferenceType, PolyStringType. All elements are aggregated to this types (tables).
- Long, Integer, Short -> Long
- Date (Gregorian calendar) -> Date
- String, Double, Float -> String
- ObjectReferenceType and PolyString types are handled via custom tables
- Everything else goes to Clob
Long, Date and String values are indexed, clob is not indexed. Real types for aggregated types are saved as QName values. Aggregation translation for xsd:any values is provided by RAnyConverter. Repository uses dictionary implementation to store/load different properties, see ExtItemDictionary. New items are added to dictionary in transaction other than current add/modify operation is in. In such case parent transaction is restarted.
Audit tables uses
IDENTITY columns (autoincrement).
Transactions, locking failover
SQL repository uses simple transactions which last during single operation (e.g. add/modify/delete/search). When transaction fails because of locking (table lock timeout, record timeout), SQL repository tries to repeat operation for number SqlBaseService LOCKING_MAX_ATTEMPTS times. As this implementation supports databases from multiple vendors, transaction and locking configuration is different for each vendor. Default configurations are defined in
SQL repository contains
com.evolveum.midpoint.repo.sql.query2.QueryInterpreter2 which can interpret queries defined by query-3 schema.
QueryRegistry to translate queried value name to real hibernate entity property name.
QueryRegistry loads entity and attribute definitions during initialisation. Currently supported query filters are:
- substring (with anchor start/end)
Most tests are located in module
