-     * The association with a PersistenceManager, the candidate collection, 
-     * result class, limits on size, and number of skipped instances 
-     * are not used.
-     * The variableDeclaration is the name of the variable containing
-     * the results of the subquery execution. This variable may be used
-     * in this query.
-     * The candidateCollectionExpression is the expression using tokens

+     * containing the results of the subquery execution. If the same value
+     * of variableDeclaration is used to add multiple subqueries, the

+     * If the subquery parameter is null, the variable is unset,
+     * effectively making the variable named in the variableDeclaration
+     * unbound. If the trimmed value is the empty String, or the parameter
