Would you mind to create a jira issue on that ?

query without escapecharacters (where <column> like 'a_%' ) both the rows are returned.
I need to  provide a where clause with the condition as <column> like 'a\_%' to get
the correct record (also need to add ESCAPE keyword to the query). However, because escapeText
returns false, the criteria value gets built wrongly in the buildLike method of SQLExpression
class.. (the method returns 'a\%'). If escapeText returns true this problem will be solved
(ESCAPE keyword addition needs to be tackled also).
