    Do updates to ejb3 entity objects only update for new values

    Ed Ed Newbie


      If I have an entity bean in ejb3 that is loaded with one row from a database, and then I update only one of the fields in the entity bean, will every column in the database row also be updated -or is only the affected column updated?

      The reason I ask is that we have triggers set to fire if a particular column is updated and write to an event table.... if every field is updated, when only one column was actually updated, then a number of false events are written :(

      Thank You for any and all assistance...
