Hi all,

I have got a doubt in regards to q.11 on p.428 of HFEJB book.

Question lists the following query


select distinct object(c)
from Customer c, in (c.Order) o, in (o.lineItems) li
where li.product_type = 'refrigerator'



I think that this query is invalid because of (c.Order) collection valued path expression - Order cannot be a valid cmr-field as it does not start with the lower case as specified in the spec (section 10.3.1):


The container-managed persistent fields and container-managed relationship fields must be specified in the deployment descriptor using the cmp-field and cmr-field elements respectively.The names of these fields must be valid Java identifiers and must begin with a lowercase letter, as determined by java.lang.Character.isLowerCase.



I have searched the spec hoping that it would tell me that cmr fields are case insensitive when used in ejb-ql path expressions. Could not find anything. As far as I understand only reserved words (eg, unknown/as/not etc.) and identifiers are case insensitive in ejb-ql.

I'd greatly appreciate your thoughts on this subject.

Thank you, Nathaniel.

Do you think we should report it to book's errata?

Well, actually, EJB-QL is NOT case-sensitive - see the 'watch out' box on pg. 410
