Native SQL Queries

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

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.
