Subject Re: Retrieving Joined Data
Date Wed, 02 Jul 2003 17:28:25 GMT
Okay, I thought I could get the joined data by calling something like 
ItemPeer.doSelectJoinCategory(), but the doSelectJoin methods appear to 
be defined as Protected, so I can't call them from my other packages, 
although this appears to be the documented way to do Joins and get the 
resulting data.

Given that, I don't see at all how to actually do a Join and get the 
resulting data.  The Torque documentation has several examples of 
creating the Join criteria without any examples of actually retrieving 
the data, and I haven't found any clear answer in the listserv archive 

So my simple question is: How can you do a join of tables and get the 
full results?
