[edit] Design Specification: Join with ON clause

ER 367452

[edit] Document History

Date Author Version Description & Notes
22 December 2011 Gordon Yorke Initial Document created

[edit] Project overview

JPA 2.1 will add support for an ON clause within the JOIN clause of a Java Persistence Query. Support will be required for both JPQL and Criteria queries.

[edit] Concepts

Generally the only condition for a JOIN is that of the Foreign Key but the ON clause is intended to allow users to specify additional conditions for the JOIN.

eg: JPQL: SELECT s.name FROM Suppliers s LEFT JOIN s.products p ON p.status = 'inStock'

SQL: SELECT s.name FROM Suppliers s LEFT JOIN Products p ON s.id = p.supplierId AND p.status = 'inStock'
