    I log all database changes by using a "setAndLogX" DataObject method that
    takes extra arguments rather than using "setX".

    I do this by changing the standard DataObject methods setX() to private,
    then creating something along the lines of

    public void setAndLogX([Logging Parameters,] Object value)
            // do stuff


    I have modified the cayenne class generation templates to automatically
    create these methods, so it's trivial to create new entities and attributes
    just by rebuilding the dataobject classes.

    You could certainly do something similar by passing security parameters
    rather than logging parameters. You could go a step further and require
    the same signatures for "getX" methods.
