Subject Re: table row count in cayenne
Date Fri, 28 Jul 2006 06:59:30 GMT
Hi Rashid,

The answer is yes... and I believe that the following code achieves that on 
both single and multi tier approaches (well it works on multi-tier client 

String entity = getContext().getEntityResolver().lookupObjEntity(
HashMap map = new HashMap();
map.put("entityName", entity);
NamedQuery query = new NamedQuery("EntityCount", map);
Map row = (Map) getContext().performQuery(query).get(0);
return ((Number) row.get("C")).intValue();

Then, in the modeller create the following Query, in this case it is 
called "EntityCount":

SELECT #result('count(*)' 'int' 'C') FROM $entityName $whereClause

Hope that helps,

Marek Wawrzyczny
