-<h1 id="opencmis_query_integration">OpenCMIS Query Integration</h1>
-<p>The CMIS standard contains a powerful query language that supports full
-text and relational metadata query capabilities and is modeled along a
-subset of SQL. Many repositories will have the demand to integrate into
-this query interface. OpenCMIS provides support to make a query integration
-easier. This article explains the various hooks that are provided to
-integrate into the query interface. These hooks provide different levels of
-comfort and flexibility. OpenCMIS integrates a query parser that uses ANTLR
-as parsing engine. However there is no strong dependency on ANTLR. If you
-prefer a different language parsing tool it is possible to do this.</p>
-<p>There are four different levels how you can integrate query:</p>
-<ol>
-<li>Implement query in the discovery service</li>
-<li>Use the built-in ANTLR and ANTLR CMISQL grammar</li>
-<li>Use OpenCMIS CMISQL grammar and integrate into ANTLR query walker</li>
-<li>Use predefined query walker and integrate into interface <code>IQueryConditionProcessor</code>.</li>
-</ol>
-<h2 id="implement_query_in_the_discovery_service">Implement query in the discovery
service</h2>
-<p>The first way is to implement the <code>query()</code> method like any
other service
-method on your own. This gives you the maximum flexibility including using
-a parser tool of your choice and extensions of the query grammar as you
-like. This is also the method with the highest implementation effort.</p>
-<h2 id="use_built-in_antlr_and_antlr_cmisql_grammar">Use built-in ANTLR and ANTLR CMISQL
grammar</h2>
-<p>OpenCMIS comes with a build-in integration of ANTLR and provides a grammar
-file for CMISQL. You can reuse this grammar file, modify or extend it and
-integrate query by using the ANTLR mechanisms for parsing and walking the
-abstract syntax tree. Please refer to the ANTLR documentation for further
-information. This is the right level to use if you need custom parser tree
-transformations or would like to extend the grammar with your own
-constructs. For demonstration purposes OpenCMIS provides a sample extended
-grammar as an example.</p>
-<h2 id="use_opencmis_cmsiql_grammar_and_integrate_into_antlr_query_walker">Use OpenCMIS
CMSIQL grammar and integrate into ANTLR query walker</h2>
-<p>If the standard CMISQL grammar is sufficient for you there is another level
-of integration. For many repositories there are common tasks for processing
-queries: The columns of the select part need to be evaluated and mapped to
-type and property definitions. The from area needs to be mapped to type
-definitions and some parts of the where part again refer to properties in
-types. In addition all aliases defined in the statement need to be resolved
-and many validations are performed. OpenCMIS provides a class that performs
-these common tasks. You can make use of the resolved types, properties and
-aliases and walk the resulting abstract syntax tree (AST) to evaluate the
-query. You are free to walk the AST as many times as you need and in the
-order you prefer. The basic idea is that the SELECT and FROM parts are
-processed by OpenCMIS and you are responsible for the WHERE part.&nbsp; The
-CMIS InMemory server provides an example for this level of integration: For
-each object contained in the repository the tree is traversed and checked
-if it matches the current query. You can take the InMemory code as an
-example if you decide to use this integration point.</p>
-<h2 id="use_predefined_query_walker">Use predefined query walker</h2>
-<p>For some repositories a simple and one-pass query traversal is sufficient.
-This can be the case if for example your query needs to be translated to a
-SQL query statement. Because ANTLR has some complexity OpenCMIS provides a
-predefined walker that does a simple one pass depth-first traversal. If
-this is sufficient this interface hides most of the complexity of ANTLR.
-All you have to do is to implement a Java interface
-(<code>IQueryConditionProcessor</code>). You can refer to the unit tests for
example
-code. The class <code>TestQueryProcessor</code> nested in the unit test <code>ProcessQueryTest</code>
-provides an example of such a walker. Some utility methods like for example
-parsing literals like <code>"abc"</code>, <code>-123</code> to Java
objects like <code>String</code> and <code>Integer</code>
-are common tasks. Therefore this is implemented in an abstract class
-<code>AbstractQueryConditionProcessor</code>. This declares all interface methods
as
-abstract and provides default implementations for common tasks. In most
-cases you will derive your implementation from
-<code>AbstractQueryConditionProcessor</code> and not directly implement the interface.</p>
-<p>Note: There is currently no predefined walker for the JOIN statements. If
-you need to support JOINS you have to build your own walker for this part
-as outlined in the previous section.</p>
-<h2 id="using_queryobject">Using QueryObject</h2>
-<p>The class <code>QueryObject</code> provides all the basic functionality
for resolving
-types and properties and performs common validation tasks. The <code>QueryObject</code>
-processes the <code>SELECT</code> and <code>FROM</code> parts as
well as all property references from
-the <code>WHERE</code> part. It maintains a list of Java objects and interface
that you
-can use to access the property and type definitions given your current
-position in the statement. For an example refer to the class
-<code>StoreManagerImpl</code> of the InMemory Server and method <code>query()</code>.
-To be able to use this object <code>QueryObj</code> needs to get access to the
types contained in your
-repository. For this purpose you need to pass an interface to a <code>TypeManager</code>
-as input parameter. The second parameter is your query walker implementing
-<code>IQueryConditionProcessor</code>. Your code will typically look like this:</p>
-<div class="codehilite"><pre><span class="n">TypeManager</span> <span
class="n">tm</span> <span class="o">=</span> <span class="k">new</span>
<span class="n">MyTypeManager</span><span class="o">();</span> <span
class="c1">// implements interface TypeManager</span>
-
-<span class="n">IQueryConditionProcessor</span> <span class="n">myWalker</span>
<span class="o">=</span> <span class="k">new</span> <span class="n">MyWalker</span><span
class="o">();</span>
-                         <span class="c1">// implements interface IQueryConditionProcessor</span>
-                         <span class="c1">// or extends AbstractQueryConditionProcessor</span>
-
-<span class="n">queryObj</span> <span class="o">=</span> <span
class="k">new</span> <span class="n">QueryObject</span><span class="o">(</span><span
class="n">tm</span><span class="o">,</span> <span class="n">myWalker</span><span
class="o">);</span>
-</pre></div>
-
-
-<p><code>queryObj</code> then will process the statement and call the interface
methods of
-your walker:</p>
-<div class="codehilite"><pre><span class="k">try</span> <span
class="o">{</span>
-
-    <span class="n">CmisQueryWalker</span> <span class="n">walker</span>
<span class="o">=</span> <span class="n">QueryObject</span><span
class="o">.</span><span class="na">getWalker</span><span class="o">(</span><span
class="n">statement</span><span class="o">);</span>
-    <span class="n">walker</span><span class="o">.</span><span
class="na">query</span><span class="o">(</span><span class="n">queryObj</span><span
class="o">);</span>
-
-<span class="o">}</span> <span class="k">catch</span> <span class="o">(</span><span
class="n">RecognitionException</span> <span class="n">e</span><span
class="o">)</span> <span class="o">{</span>
-    <span class="k">throw</span> <span class="k">new</span> <span
class="nf">RuntimeException</span><span class="o">(</span><span class="s">&quot;Walking
of statement failed with RecognitionException error:\n &quot;</span> <span class="o">+</span>
<span class="n">e</span><span class="o">);</span>
-<span class="o">}</span> <span class="k">catch</span> <span class="o">(</span><span
class="n">Exception</span> <span class="n">e</span><span class="o">)</span>
<span class="o">{</span>
-    <span class="k">throw</span> <span class="k">new</span> <span
class="nf">RuntimeException</span><span class="o">(</span><span class="s">&quot;Walking
of statement failed with exception:\n &quot;</span> <span class="o">+</span>
<span class="n">e</span><span class="o">);</span>
-<span class="o">}</span>
-</pre></div>
-
-
-<p>After this method returns you may for example ask your walker object
-<code>myWalker</code> for the generated SQL string.</p></div>
