Actually, I may indeed care... to to tweak your example are you saying  
I could do this...

>> EJBQLQuery countQuery = new EJBQLQuery("SELECT count(a) FROM Artist

Expression expression; // assume exists
EJBQLQuery countQuery = new EJBQLQuery("SELECT count(*) FROM Artist a  
WHERE " + expression.toEJBQLString("a"));

Is that the intention?
