You cannot use JOINs in EJB-QL.

Hi Todor
Joins are allowed in EJB-QL. Please see the query in Pg233 of EJB Spec. Below is the query
SELECT DISTINCT OBJECT(o1) FROM Order o1, Order o2 WHERE o1.quantity > o2.quantity AND o2.customer.lastname = �Smith� AND o2.customer.firstname= �John�

Hi Sudhir,
of course you are rigth but I was thinking in the context of the current thread.
So the question is : Why this EJB-QL is wrong

SELECT s.name FROM Student s, Program p where s.subjectid=p.subjectId


and the spec says on p.232

Because finder methods cannot return arbitrary types, the SELECT clause of an EJB QL query defined
for a finder method must always correspond to the abstract schema type of the entity bean for which the
finder method is defined.


and later on

In contrast, the SELECT clause of a query defined for a select method can
return the abstract schema types of other entity beans or the values of cmp-fields.


The given EJB-QL states that the method is select method (because of the return type), so it appeared that this EJB-QL is right.
