Subject RE: Problem iterating over a list of beans
Date Tue, 08 Jul 2008 21:34:09 GMT
I'm certainly not an expert at this, but what if instead of passing the list
right into the query, you created a map and put the list into the map with
the key "conditions" (then pass the map into the query).

Then, put something like this in the mapping:

<iterate property="conditions" conjunction="and">
	$conditions[].condition$ $conditions[].operator$ #[].value#

That is usually how I iterate over stuff.  Not sure if I am understanding
entirely what is going on with your situation, though...

Subject: Problem iterating over a list of beans

I'm new to iBATIS and I'm having trouble with the <iterate> element.

I want to create a query for an entirely dynamic where clause.  I've
constructed a Bean called QueryCondition with the following properties:

String condition
String operator
String value

(along with public accessors and mutators)

I'm passing an ArrayList into the following mapping:

  <select id="myObject.dynamicQuery" resultMap="myObject_resultmap"
    select id, name, data, notes
    from objectTable
    <dynamic prepend="where">
		<iterate conjunction="and">
			$[].condition$ $[].operator$ #[].value#

But it's not working.  In the logs, I see the following:
Preparing Statement:      select id, name, source_code_location, context,
notes     from objectTable where       my.package.QueryCondition@1f5b4d1
my.package.QueryCondition@1f5b4d1 ?

and then I get a logged exception:
--- The error occurred while applying a parameter map.
--- Check the sites.dynamicQuery-InlineParameterMap.
--- Check the parameter mapping for the '[0].value' property.
--- Cause: java.lang.NullPointerException
[full stack trace available if needed]
The line 'check the parameter mapping...' will occur for whichever one of
the properties a place in hashmarks, ie - #[].operator# will cause it

I have verified that there is 1 QueryCondition object in this list which
has its properties set.  Strange that the prepared statement resolves the
first two properties to objects of type QueryCondition, instead of
property string valyes.  I guess I'm not understanding how to properly
access the objects in the list.  If I set a 'property' attribute in the
<iterate> tag,  I get:
--- The error occurred while preparing the mapped statement for execution.
--- Check the myObject.dynamicQuery.
--- Check the parameter map.
--- Cause: com.ibatis.common.beans.ProbeException: Error getting ordinal
list from JavaBean. Cause java.lang.StringIndexOutOfBoundsException:
String index out of range: -1

Thanks for any help!
