Subject Re: Adding Tables To From Clause and Corresponding Entries To Where Clause
Date Wed, 28 Jan 2009 12:42:41 GMT
Hi,

I have read the section on dynamic sql, but can't see how to do what I'm trying to do exactly.
 It looks like I will need 2 separate iterator tags (one for the from clause and one for the
to clause) so I assume that means iBatis would be iterating my list twice to build the query.
 The other thing that I don't see is what notation I use to extract the index of each element
of the list so that I can use it as part of the table synonyms so I can join the correct 2
rows of the attribute table and the item attribute table.

I'm sorry that my original email was not clear enough.  Hopefully, this helps better clarify
what I am asking.

Thanks again for your help

John
