I have one table in database that contains 3 foreign keys to another tables(this three tables name are: manager,worker and employee). in each row only one foreign key is filled.I need to write one query that with attention which column of fk is filled in where clause specified condition is performed. I write simple query in jpa but doesn't work properly
select b from allEmployees b where b.manager.name= :name OR b.worker.name = :name OR b.employee.name= :name
do you have any idea?I have to resolve it but i don't have any idea

By looking at the query, it seems to be OK.
However can you please set setSqlEnabled property as true(in hibernate it is there, not sure about JPA) and check which query has been prepared by JPA?

Once you get simple query, you can fire on DB and check the expected behavior. If query is wrong, it means jpa query requires changes.
