Subject [jira] Commented: (OPENJPA-1043) JPQL queries do not support queries on a MappedSuperclass
Date Fri, 24 Apr 2009 21:12:30 GMT


Ravi P Palacherla commented on OPENJPA-1043:


In case it is helpful, when I give the complete packagename of the mappedsuperclass in the
query then I am not seeing this issue.

Query newQuery = pm.createQuery("select x from test.kodo.memofield.AbstractInstance x"); 
List l = newQuery.getResultList();

Attached ""  is the test case that will not break and the query is against
mappessuperclass (with complete packagename).

To run the test case:

1) ant
2) ant test.

The version that I tested it against:

java org.apache.openjpa.conf.OpenJPAVersion

version id: openjpa-2.0.0-SNAPSHOT-r422266:753596
Apache svn revision: 422266:753596

> This issue was reported by Jim Weaver via a nabble user forum post[1].  The JPA specification
clearly states that queries upon a mapped superclass are not permitted, but the OpenJPA documentation
has a note saying that they are supported[2].
> Given:
> @MappedSuperclass class A { }
> @Entity class B extends A { }
> @Entity class C extends A { }
> I found that:
> a) The em.find(A.class, id) operation does indeed allow the use of mapped superclass.
OpenJPA issues a select upon tables B and C looking for a matching ID.
> b) A JPQL query does not:  SELECT a FROM A a  fails with exception: (as reported by Jim)
> I receive error message "An error occurred while parsing the query filter
> "SELECT a FROM A a".  Error message:   The name "A" is not a recognized
> entity or identifier.  Perhaps you meant B, which is a close match.  Known
> entity names: [B, C]"
> I attempted the same test with the OpenJPA base 1.0 provider and it failed with the same
error so it doesn't look like this was ever supported via. JPQL.
> If the decision is made not to provide this support in the near future, the documentation
should be updated to qualify that mapped superclass is only allow on a find.
