The PrePersistHook offers this method
Optional<ItemModel> execute(ItemModel item);
When implementing the PrePersistHook the changed model is passed to the method. The executing path already open a transaction and it seems that the item is already persisted, but the transaction is not committed, yet.
If I try to get the same Item again from the database with flexible search, it returns the already updated object.
The documentation => https://help.sap.com/viewer/bad9b0b66bac476f8a4a5c4a08e4ab6b/v2005/en-US/028a2af06880407cb4b1c062469...
defines that one should not open transactions or create new threads.
But if it is not allowed, how is it possible to get the old version of the Model in a PrePersistHook to perform a validation or perform other check before the changes are persisted?
In our case, we want to create a new version of the OrderModel, but the persisted old version ever already have the old values. We see no opportunity to get the old version in a clean way.
Many standard prepersist hooks always fetch the item again from the database and return Option.empty() in the hook
