I’m just migration to the newest OGM, having had my project on an older version of SDN until now.
I’m worried about something that isn’t very well spelled out in the docs (https://neo4j.com/docs/ogm-manual/current/reference/).
220.127.116.11. Load depth: By default, loading an instance will map that object’s simple properties and its immediately-related objects (i.e. depth = 1).
18.104.22.168. Save depth: As mentioned previously, save(entity) is overloaded as save(entity, depth), where depth dictates the number of related entities to save starting from the given entity. The default depth, -1, will persist properties of the specified entity as well as every modified entity in the object graph reachable from it. This means that all affected objects in the entity model that are reachable from the root object being persisted will be modified in the graph
If I load an object to depth N, I’m presuming that relationships at depth N will not get loaded, and so the associated object properties will be returned null.
If I subsequently resave such a loaded object won’t OGM remove the preexisting relationship?
Or, does OGM know that it didn’t load that subobject and so not remove the relationship? (How does it know?)
