    How to set default restrictions

    Lelo Pieri Newbie

      Hi All,

      I'm trying to set default restrictions on EntityQuery but it is not working.

      My goals is include the condition: parent is null

      If i can, I'd like to do not filter by path, just by parent.

      My code is:

      public class UploadedFile {
           private int id;
           private UploadedFile parent;
           private String path="";
           private int status;
           private Date uploadedDate;
           private String errorMsg;
           private Company company;
      //getters and setters
      public class UploadedFileList extends EntityQuery<UploadedFile> {
           private static final long serialVersionUID = -1706808665658570124L;
           private static final String EJBQL = "select uploadedFile from UploadedFile uploadedFile";
      //     private static final String[] RESTRICTIONS = { "lower(uploadedFile.path) like lower(concat(#{reportsList.report.path},'%'))", 
      //          "uploadedFile.parent = #{null}"};
           private static final String[] RESTRICTIONS = { "lower(uploadedFile.path) like lower(concat(#{uploadedFileList.uploadedFiles.path},'%'))"};
           private UploadedFile uploadedFile = new UploadedFile();
           public UploadedFileList() {
                      //this restriction doesn't work
                List<ValueExpression> restrictions = new ArrayList<ValueExpression>();
                restrictions.add(createValueExpression("uploadedFile.parent = #{null}"));
           public UploadedFile getUploadedFiles() {
                return uploadedFile;

      Thanks for all.
