Hello all,

I'm not sure if I am right as I just had a quick look on your problem,
but I read on the Torque pages about the "ExtendedCriteria": there you
might encapsulate the subselect, represented as an Criteria object
itself, and create the proper statement.

You just need two additional methods, something like that. For a "not
in", you certainly have to modify it a bit. There's an extract from my

public class ExtendedCriteria extends Criteria {
	 * Adds a subselect from an existing criteria for one column
	 * the IN operator.
	 * @param columnname	COLUMN IN (select foo from ...)
	 * @param criteria		containing the subselect
	public ExtendedCriteria addIn(String columnname, Criteria
criteria) {
		try {
			String query = getSubQueryString(criteria);
			// might have to adapt this to special adapter.
			add(columnname, (Object) (columnname + " in ( "
+ query + " )"), CUSTOM);
		} catch (TorqueException e) {
			//Log.error( "Couldn't create sub select.", e);
			// make it unchecked
			throw new RuntimeException(e);
		return this;

	 * Returns the sql query from the given Criteria object.
	 * @param criteria
	 * @throws TorqueException	when not exacltly one column was
	private String getSubQueryString(Criteria criteria) throws
TorqueException {
		if (criteria.getSelectColumns().size() != 1) {
			throw new TorqueException("Only exactly one
column allowed in subselect.");
		return BasePeer.createQueryString(criteria);
