Subject Re: customized where
Date Thu, 29 May 2008 15:07:14 GMT
Couple of ways to do this:

1. Build the where clause yourself and pass it as a parameter to the

Select * from foo $where_clause$

2. Use iBATIS dynamic SQL tags:

select * from foo
<dynamic prepend="where">
  <isNotNull property="firstName" prepend="and">
    FIRST_NAME = #firstName#
   <isNotNull property="lastName" prepend="and">
    LAST_NAME = #lastName#

The first is open to SQL injection, the second is safer but less flexible.
You could also take a look at code generated by ibator - which demonstrates
a method of creating a very flexible where clause.
