i read this syntax in the oreilly book.

i tried also with "select from ..." and "select * from ..." but still getting error message.

how would you write the query in the ejb-syntax ?

Salah,

Are you using EJB 3 remoting by accident or on purpose? The problem you are having indicates an RMI connectivity issue, possibly because of a firewall, but it could also be some kind of weird network misconfiguration.

The "from" syntax definitely won't work unless you are using Hibernate. Even then, it's not a good idea...I am shocked the Bill Burke book would include such code. I certainly did not catch that when I read it myself.

The code you have posted is fine otherwise. The problem is elsewhere.

Thanks,
Reza

P.S.: What you are using is called JPQL, not "EJB query language". That refers to EJBQL in EJB 2.x Entity Beans.

This example seems to be specifically for demonstrating how to use native queries, so looks valid :

First of all, thank you much for the reply.
Second, it was in fact in the oreilly book in many sections:
- 9.1. Query API:

- 25.1.6. FlushModeType Behavior
- I saw it also elsewhere in the book

but it is as you said not a valid syntax for JPQL (thank you for the explanation) and because it was a bit strange to me, i looked in the unconfirmed errata of this book. And in fact it was inside as a mistake. (because of this mistake so much trouble and testings but anyway, i am learning ). The unconfirmed errata text contains the right answer:

I tested this syntax and it worked fine. Thank you all for your help.

I think this problem is listed in the unconfirmed errata. (171)
