    jboss-ql LIKE problem!

    Paul Reeves Newbie

      I am having a problem getting jboss-ql to work with a LIKE parameter clause.

      Using JBoss 3.0.4 with XDoclet 1.2beta1 and i mark up my jboss-ql tag as follows:

      * @ejb.finder signature="Collection findByRoom(java.lang.Integer roomId)"
      * unchecked="true"
      * query=""
      * @jboss.query signature="Collection findByRoom(java.lang.Integer roomId)"
      * strategy="on-load"
      * query="SELECT OBJECT(o) FROM Function AS f, IN (f.rooms) AS o WHERE (o.roomId LIKE CONCAT(?1,'%')) ORDER BY o.roomId"

      Which produces this in the jbosscmp-jdbc.xml:

      <jboss-ql><![CDATA[SELECT OBJECT(o) FROM Function AS f, IN (f.rooms) AS o WHERE (o.roomId LIKE CONCAT(?1,'%')) ORDER BY o.roomId]]></jboss-ql>


      I have tried different variations of the query such as removing the CONCAT, having a query in
      ejb.finder etc but to no avail. When the ql is parsed during deployment i get the following:
      12:05:12,611 WARN [ServiceController] Problem starting service jboss.j2ee:jndiName=TeamLocalHome,service=EJB
      org.jboss.deployment.DeploymentException: Error compiling ejbql; - nested throwable: (org.jboss.ejb.plugins.cmp.ejbql.ParseException: Encountered "LIKE" at line 1, column 72.

      Is there something that i am missing or is there a known problem that i don't know about ?

      Many thanks in advance,

          Firstly, your parameter is Integer. I don't see how you could use "like" with Integers, they're meant to be used with strings.
          Secondly, I've seen a post somewhere in these forums that advizes on not using concat in the query itself. If you need to append '%' to the parameter do it in the code, before you call the finder. So do something like this:
          fndParam = fndParam + "%";
          Collection fndResult = findByRoom ( 1, fndParam );
