    Why a STATIC RESTRICTIONS in Seam-gen EntityQuery?

    Peter Boevink Newbie

      All sessionbean lists generated by seam-gen provide an implementation of an EntityQuery class.

      Why is the String[] of RESTRICTIONS marked as Static? as shown below:

      package web.session;
      import web.entity.user.*;
      import org.jboss.seam.annotations.Name;
      import org.jboss.seam.framework.EntityQuery;
      import java.util.List;
      import java.util.Arrays;
      public class UserList extends EntityQuery {
       private static final String[] RESTRICTIONS = {
       "lower(email) like concat(lower(#{userList.user.email}),'%')",
       "lower(password) like concat(lower(#{userList.user.password}),'%')",
       "lower(username) like concat(lower(#{userList.user.username}),'%')", };
       private User user = new User();
       public String getEjbql() {
       return "select user from User user";
       public Integer getMaxResults() {
       return 25;
       public User getUser() {
       return user;
       public List<String> getRestrictions() {
       return Arrays.asList(RESTRICTIONS);

      The only place currently reffering to this attribute is within the class itself (getRestrictions).
      Or am I missing something?
