In addition to JPQL, EclipseLink rich native DatabaseQuery and Expression criteria API.

For additional information on EclipseLink native queries, see Queries in the EclipseLink User's Guide.


Using JpaEntityManager createQuery() API

import javax.persistence.Query;
import org.eclipse.persistence.expressions.*;
import org.eclipse.persistence.queries.ReadAllQuery;
 
ExpressionBuilder builder = new ExpressionBuilder();
ReadAllQuery databaseQuery = new ReadAllQuery(Employee.class, builder);
databaseQuery.setSelectionCriteria(builder.get("firstName").like("B%"));
databaseQuery.addOrdering(builder.get("firstName").toUpperCase());
 
Query query = ((JpaEntityManager)entityManager.getDelegate()).createQuery(databaseQuery);
List result = query.getResultList();

Note: The JpaEntityManager API was added in EclipseLink 1.1.

In EclipseLink 1.0, the JpaQuery method setDatabaseQuery() could be used.
