Subject [jira] Commented: (OPENJPA-1483) count (Distinct e) in JPQL gives wrong result when the id field is a compound primary key
Date Mon, 01 Feb 2010 17:38:18 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OPENJPA-1483?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12828186#action_12828186

Fay Wang commented on OPENJPA-1483:
-----------------------------------

Hi Milosz, thank you for pointing out this. Common table expression and table expression semantically
are the same, but syntactically, they are quite different. For cte, you can define once and
use it multiple times. it is like a function definition of a program. In this JIRA, it is
table expression, but not common table expression that is required:

SELECT COUNT(*)
FROM (SELECT DISTINCT G1.G1PK, G1.G2PK
FROM F1 t0 INNER JOIN G2 t1 ON t0.G1PK = t1.G1PK AND t0.G2PK = t1.G2PK)) TX;

However, given the object-relational impedance mismatch, there is no corresponding SQL construct
for count of multiple primary keys, and there is no clean and generic solution to solve this
problem. The only workaround is to use native SQL with table expression:
> 	SELECT COUNT(*)
> 	FROM (SELECT DISTINCT G1.G1PK, G1.G2PK 	FROM F1 t0 INNER JOIN G2 t1 ON t0.G1PK = t1.G1PK
AND t0.G2PK = t1.G2PK)) TX;	
> 	Rather than giving a wrong answer, OpenJPA should give an Unsupported exception.
