Subject IN operator missed?
Date Mon, 13 Nov 2006 15:29:47 GMT
Working in real-world applications using JDO 2.0 I beware about the SQL IN
equivalend operator missed by spec. An example:

public class Questionnaire{
  private Employee employee;

I'd like to get any Questionnaire instances for the following employee:
Luca, Robert and Chris. The CONTAINS operator works only on collection, but
it could be useful to execute a query like this:

List<Employee> list= new ArrayList<Employee>();
// LET'S THINK E1-E2-E3 are loaded before
List.add( e1 );
List.add( e2 );
List.add( e3 );

Query query = iManager.newQuery();
query.setClass( Questionnaire.class );
query.setFilter( "list.contains( employee )" );
query.declareVariables( "java.util.Collection list" );
query.execute( list );

JDO implementation should translate the query by using SQL IN operator and
the OID of Employee objects contained in the LIST collection passed as

What do you think?
