Subject [jira] Commented: (JDO-633) List.get(int) support in JDOQL is missing
Date Fri, 26 Jun 2009 16:23:07 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JDO-633?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12724602#action_12724602

Craig Russell commented on JDO-633:

Andy commented:

A List has an order (whether it is an "indexed" List, or 
an "ordered" List (using JPA-style ordering criteria)). The user puts items 
in the List and persists the List. The user then wants to grab element at 
index 2. Storing the order in the datastore, in some way, is essential to 
support (indexed) Lists, hence querying should be straightforward. Since JDO 
doesn't define an ordering constraint, it is reasonable to assume that in JDO 
a List is an "indexed" List, hence retains the users ordering.

As far as testing goes, surely all you need to do is persist an object with a 
List with some elements in some order, and then do a query, assuming the same 
order as they had at the moment of persistence. Where does DB-specific SQL 
come into this ? surely that is the problem for the implementation.

> It would be nice to get List.get(int) into JDOQL, in other words access of indexed list
> Querydsl has support for that and for consistency it would be nice if JDOQL supported
it as well.
