In HFEJB 429, Q13,
What's true about EJBQL Path Expression?
one of the correct answer is
B) Path Expression can terminate with either cmr-field or cmp-field.
I'm getting confused with the description in page 406 which says we can't use cmr-field for single valued path expression? Am i missing something here?

In my understanding select m.director from MovieSchema m is correct, as long as m.director is not a collection type.

It says "you can't use dot notation to return a CMR field". It doesn't mean Path Expression can't terminate with cmr-field. e.g, assume Director is a CMR field, so you can't say:

Select m.Director from.... (this is to "return" CMR field using dot)

but you can say:
Select *** from **** WHERE [I]a.Director[I] IS NOT EMPTY (this Path Expression terminates with cmr-field )

According to the spec page:239,240, Select clause can have single valued expression or Object(identifier).

select_clause ::=SELECT [DISTINCT ] {single_valued_path_expression |
OBJECT (identification_variable)}
single_valued_path_expression ::=
{single_valued_navigation | identification_variable}.cmp_field |
single_valued_navigation
single_valued_navigation ::=
identification_variable.[single_valued_cmr_field.]* single_valued_cmr_field

I think "You can't use dot notation to return a Collectiontype CMR field"
