Additional steps when working with the data object in the application

Often in applications there is a need to perform any additional steps when adding, changing, or deleting data objects, for example, an entry in the application log. In Flexberry ORM this feature is implemented by using classes called business server. Such classes must contain the methods named a certain way, to perform actions to your desired stage.

Console.WriteLine("4. How to do something persistence at the moment.");

IDataService dataService = DataServiceProvider.DataService;
OrmSample ormSample = new OrmSample(dataService);
object primaryKey = ormSample.GetSomeObjectPrimaryKey(typeof(CDDA));

// How to do something in the time you save: 
// 1. Ask for the entity class business server Flexberry or using .Net-attribute BusinessServer (see CDDA class in the project CDLIB(Objects)). 
// 2. Generate from Flexberry or create your own business class server with a method that handles storing objects, and implement it 
// (see class CDLibBS in the project CDLIB(BusinessServers)) 
// 3. Perform any action with the object and save it. 
CDDA cdda = new CDDA();
Stopwatch stopwatch = new Stopwatch();
dataService.LoadObject(CDDA.Views.CDDA_E, cdda);
cdda.Name = "Huh! " + DateTime.Now;
Console.WriteLine("Time taken for loading and persistence: {0} ms.", stopwatch.ElapsedMilliseconds);

Example method business server, triggered when updating a data object class CDDA:

public virtual ICSSoft.STORMNET.DataObject[] OnUpdateCDDA(IIS.CDLIB.CDDA UpdatedObject)
    // Change the properties of the persisted object. 
    UpdatedObject.TotalTracks = UpdatedObject.Track.Count;

    // The return value contains an array of objects that need to be updated, in addition UpdatedObject. 
    // Contents depends on the business logic. If nothing else upgrade is not required, an empty array is returned. 
    return new ICSSoft.STORMNET.DataObject[0];
