    EntityQuery ResultList Search and Pagination

    Trelieux Einagen Newbie

      Hello,


      When doing a search through a resultlist in a RichFaces datatable (which was paginated with a datascroller).  I noticed  that when I do a search on the first page of the datatable I can find any result with a valid search.  But if I scroll to the last page on the datable and do the same search, I get no results as it can no longer find that valid item.  My question is what can I do to ensure that no matter what page the user is on they'll be able to search the entire resultlist in the datatable no matter what page their on in the datatable.  For example if I'm on page 9 of the datatable resultList and I want to do search where the item is actually located on page 1, if I do a valid search query in a text inputfield the resultlist should still be able to find the result from page 1, even though I'm on page 9 of the datatable?  Does that make sense?  If not I will attempt to clarify some more.  Here is a example sessionlist bean I'm using to generate a resultlist for a datatable:



      @Name("exoshellUserRolesList")
      @Scope(ScopeType.SESSION)
      public class ExoshellUserRolesList extends EntityQuery<ExoshellUserRoles> {
           @In
           protected EntityManager entityManager;     
           
           /* UNABLE TO GET RESTRICTIONS TO WORK WITHOUT POINTING TO NULL PARENT OBJECT I.E. exoshellUsers, exoshellRoles or exoshellModules */
           private static final String[] RESTRICTIONS = {
                "lower(exoshellUserRoles.exoshellUsers.username) like concat(lower(#{exoshellUserRolesList.exoshellUserRoles.exoshellUsers.username}),'%')",
                "lower(exoshellUserRoles.exoshellRoles.roleName) like concat(lower(#{exoshellUserRolesList.exoshellUserRoles.exoshellRoles.roleName}),'%')",
                "lower(exoshellUserRoles.exoshellModules.moduleName) like concat(lower(#{exoshellUserRolesList.exoshellUserRoles.exoshellModules.moduleName}),'%')"
           };     
           
           private ExoshellUserRoles exoshellUserRoles = new ExoshellUserRoles(); 
           @In(create=true)
           private ExoshellUsersHome exoshellUsersHome;
           @In(create=true)
           private ExoshellRolesHome exoshellRolesHome;
           @In(create=true)
           private ExoshellModulesHome exoshellModulesHome;
           private String queryString = new String("select exoshellUserRoles from ExoshellUserRoles exoshellUserRoles " +
                     "join fetch exoshellUserRoles.exoshellUsers " +
                     "left join fetch exoshellUserRoles.exoshellRoles " +
                     "left outer join fetch exoshellUserRoles.exoshellModules ");
      
           public ExoshellUserRolesList() {   
                      setEjbql(queryString);
           }
                
           @Override
           public String getEjbql() {
                return queryString;
           }
      
           public ExoshellUserRoles getExoshellUserRoles() {
                 if (exoshellUserRoles.getExoshellUsers() == null){
                      exoshellUserRoles.setExoshellUsers(exoshellUsersHome.getInstance());
                 }  
                 if (exoshellUserRoles.getExoshellRoles() == null){
                      exoshellUserRoles.setExoshellRoles(exoshellRolesHome.getInstance());
                 }  
                 if (exoshellUserRoles.getExoshellModules() == null){
                      exoshellUserRoles.setExoshellModules(exoshellModulesHome.getInstance());
                 }  
                return exoshellUserRoles;
           }
      
           @Override
           public List<String> getRestrictions() {
                return Arrays.asList(RESTRICTIONS);
           }
      
           @Override
           public String getOrder() {
                return new String("exoshellUserRoles.userRolesId asc");
           }
           
          @Override
          public EntityManager getPersistenceContext()
          {
            return entityManager;
          }
      
      }
