EJB query language
An EJB query is a string that contains the following elements...
- a SELECT clause that specifies the EJBs or values to return;
- a FROM clause that names the bean collections;
- an optional WHERE clause that contains search predicates over the collections;
- an optional GROUP BY and HAVING clause (see Aggregation functions);
- an optional ORDER BY clause that specifies the ordering of the result collection.
The SELECT clause is optional in order to maintain compatibility with WAS Version 4.
Collections of entity beans are identified in EJB queries through the use of their abstract schema name in the query FROM clause.
The elements of EJB query language are discussed in more detail in the following related topics.
