public interface Query extends Serializable
Defines minimal API of a query descriptor that is executable via Cayenne.
Modifier and Type Method Description
SQLActionVisitor visitor)(A callback method invoked by Cayenne during the final execution phase of the query run.
EntityResolver resolver)(Returns query runtime parameters.
QueryRouter router, EntityResolver resolver, Query substitutedQuery)(A callback method invoked by Cayenne during the routing phase of the query execution.
getMetaDataReturns query runtime parameters. The method is called at various stages of the execution by Cayenne access stack to retrieve query parameters. EntityResolver instance is passed to this method, meaning that the query doesn't need to store direct references to Cayenne mapping objects and can resolve them at runtime.
routeA callback method invoked by Cayenne during the routing phase of the query execution. Mapping of DataNodes is provided by QueryRouter. Query should use a
QueryRouter.route(QueryEngine, Query, Query)callback method to route itself. Query can create one or more substitute queries or even provide its own QueryEngine to execute itself.
createSQLActionA callback method invoked by Cayenne during the final execution phase of the query run. A concrete query implementation is given a chance to decide how it should be handled. Implementors can pick an appropriate method of the SQLActionVisitor to handle itself, create a custom SQLAction of its own, or substitute itself with another query that should be used for SQLAction construction.
