Subject OpenJPA querying on element collections
Date Mon, 26 Sep 2011 18:21:57 GMT

Does anyone know if OpenJPA supports queries on element collections?

                public class Item implements Serializable {
                                private long m_seqNo;

                                @CollectionTable(name="properties", joinColumns={ @JoinColumn(name="seq_no")
                                @MapKeyColumn(name = "prop_name")
                                private Map<String, String> m_properties;
... basically, 1-to-many from "items" to "properties" with schema
                Table: items
                Column: seq_no               // primary key

                Table: properties
                Column: seq_no               // foreign key to "items"
                Column: prop_name      // m_properties keys
                Column: prop_val            // m_properties values

Then: running JPA query
                SELECT x FROM Item x WHERE x.m_properties.get('x') < 'h'
results in a parse exception for me on OpenJPA v2.0.0.
