Hi all,

I am writing simple JPQL. It seems to be not working. It's as

select new com.Names(distinct(cdtwk.cName)) from CSummaryByDateWeek cdtwk;

It says unexpected token: distinct.

When I take out the word distinct, it works fine.I know JPQL have distict keyword word, but then why not working??

My jpql is

select DISTINCT new model.Loggoldtmp( DATE_FORMAT(createdate, '%Y-%m-%d') as datevalue,year(createdate) as yearvalue,month(createdate) as monthvalue,quarter(createdate) as seasonvalue,dayofyear(createdate) as dayofyearvalue,dayofmonth(createdate) as dayofmonthvalue,dayofweek(createdate) as dayofweekvalue ,now() as createdate) "+
"from Loggold o";
