Support arbitrary enum values to be persisted

 Description  « Hide
Enum usage is normally a combination of name and ordinal values. Currently JPOX supports persisting the name or ordinal values, but should be allowed to persist arbitrary values. See the example:

public enum Test {
    RED(1), BLUE(5);
    private final int value;
    Test(int v)
        this.value = v;
    public final int getValue()
        return this.value;
    public final static Enum getEnum(int i)
            case 1: return Test.RED;
            case 5: return Test.BLUE;
        return null;

    <package name="org.jpox.samples.jdo.enums">
        <class name="Palette">
            <field name="color" persistence-modifier="persistent" serialized="false">
<extension vendor-name="jpox" key="enum-persistence-value-getter" value="getValue"/>
<extension vendor-name="jpox" key="enum-enum-value-getter" value="getEnum"/>

enum-enum-value-getter is the getter name for a static method that returns the Enum instance for the corresponding value.
enum-persistence-value-getter is the getter name for an instance method that returns the value to be persisted

Not part of JDO2.1/JPA1 so moving to JPOX 1.3

Use of extensions "enum-value-getter" (to get the value from an Enum) and "enum-getter-by-value" (to get the Enum from the value) are supported in SVN trunk. Extensions should be specified on field (1-1 relation) or on element, key, value (1-N relation).
