Subject Re: Counting the number of destination objects for a to-many relationship (or checking if empty)

Hi Hugi,

I'm not sure if this will work for 4.0 (since earlier you said you are
using it), but this is what I'd use for 3.1:

If you have A->>B, you'd construct a SelectQuery to fetch B's where toA =
your A object.  Basically, invert your query and count the matches.
Something like:

SelectQuery selectQuery = new SelectQuery(B.class);
selectQuery.setQualifier(ExpressionFactory.matchExp("toA", a));
int countOfB = AggregateUtils.count(dataContext, selectQuery);

Some other example uses:
