Interface QueryRedirector

  • All Superinterfaces:
    All Known Implementing Classes:

    public interface QueryRedirector

    Purpose: Query redirection allows for a named or parameterized query (or finder) to dynamically determine how the query is to be executed based on the arguments.

    Description: An implementor of this interface can be given to a query to allow the user to have full control over the execution of the query. Redirection can be used to:

    • Dynamically configure the query options based on the arguments (i.e. ordering, query optimization... etc.).
    • Dynamically define the selection criteria based on the arguments.
    • Pass Query By Example objects or Expressions as the arguments.
    • Post process the query results.
    • Perform multiple queries or non-EclipseLink operations.

    Note: If you execute the query on a UnitOfWork, the results register with that UnitOfWork, so any objects you attempt to retrieve with the invoke method must come from the Session Cache.
