How to update entities using Xodux-DNQ

I have searched Xodus and Xodus-DNQ and I am not able to find an idiomatic way to update an entity that is already inside a Xodus database, using Xodus-DNQ. Would I have to delete that entity and created it again afterwards, or is there a better way to do this?

Thank you

    Bruno, you can just update the fields of the entity in a transaction. That's it.

    Please, check the sample right in the README.md. In this block field posts of the blog is actually updated.

       xodusStore.transactional {
            // Create new post
            val post = XdPost.new {
                this.publishedAt = DateTime.now()
                this.text = args.firstOrNull() ?: "Empty post"
            }
    
            // Add new post to blog
            blog.posts.add(post)
        }
