    problems with ms sql

    mark smith Newbie

      can some one tell me how to do this. I'm trying to bulk load into Ms Sql 2000 and I need to execute this sql statement

       Query setIdentity = entityManager.createNativeQuery("SET IDENTITY_INSERT AssignmentType ON");

          isn't this a EJB3 topic?

            I don't think so. I've tried to go out to jdbc to do that but it always fails because I have a managed transaction. This is seam managing the transaction and not allowing me a way to talk direct sql to database engine.

              I would suggest asking on the hibernate.org forum or in the JBoss EJB3 forum. Seam is only wrapping EJB3 persistence (to provide support for long-runing conversations) in it's transaction management.

                I had the same problem. Here's partial code that does the trick. Note that I'm using an EntityManager in a JSE environment, not a JEE environment.

                Also, since I'm using hibernate, I did one hacky thing... I down casted the EntityManager to EntityManagerImpl.

                Here's what I wrote to set identity on and off (this is a first pass, I'll properly handle exceptions soon):

                private void executeSql(final EntityManager em, final String sql) {
                 try {
                 EntityManagerImpl emi = (EntityManagerImpl)em; //THE HACK
                 Connection con = emi.getSession().connection();
                 Statement s = con.createStatement();
                 } catch (Exception e) {
                 private void setInsertModeOn() {
                 executeSql(getDestinationEm(), "SET IDENTITY_INSERT Application ON");
                 private void setInsertModeOff() {
                 executeSql(getDestinationEm(), "SET IDENTITY_INSERT Application OFF");

                Then here's the code to read the from one database (something called TagApplication), create an instance of application (with the id set from the TagApplication row's value) and persist it:

                // Note that this just performs a query returning all applications after
                 // a particular date
                 private List<TagApplication> retrieveAllTagApplications() {
                 final Query query = getSourceEm()
                 .createQuery("SELECT ta from TagApplication ta where ta.applicationDate >= ?1");
                 query.setParameter(1, getIgnoreDate(), TemporalType.DATE);
                 return query.getResultList();
                 public void translate() {
                 // I've already been given my EntityManagerFactories, so create my EntityManager
                 if (getSourceEm() == null) {
                 if (getDestinationEm() == null) {
                 try {
                 // Set IDENTITY_INSERT on Application in HealthTrackDB and begin a transaction
                 // retrieve all TagApplication rows
                 final List<TagApplication> tagApplications = retrieveAllTagApplications();
                 // For each TagApplication row, create an Application based on the
                 // TagApplication (field-by-field hand copy) and (batch) insert it.
                 for (TagApplication ta : tagApplications) {
                 Application a = convert(ta);
                 // Finish off the (implicit) batch insert & reset the IDENTITY_INSERT to off
                 } finally {
