Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (JDO-274) JPOX doesnt support queries selecting just a parameter
Date Sat, 21 Jan 2006 17:45:54 GMT
Hi Erik,

I can't think of a good use case for SELECT  literal value from Class  
WHERE condition. As far as I can think, this is simply a matter of  
completeness. An important one, because if we disallow it  there is a  
lot more work to do to restrict the case and to specify the behavior  
in case the user does use this case.

So I'm not as interested in adding more test cases. If this is your  
itch, I'm happy to encourage you to scratch it, but I don't think  
it's our highest priority right now.
