If we had a "Boss" EJB with a single CMR field named "employee", and an Employee EJB using a "Pay" class as its pay CMP field, are both of these allowable:

SELECT b.employee FROM Boss b
SELECT b.employee.pay FROM Boss b

Here's a second question, if you please...

Say we have a one to many relationship: House 1 ---- * Room (a house is made of of several rooms, one room may belong to only one house), and House has a collection-valued relation field whose value is 'room'.

Our database looks like this:



Can we do this:

SELECT OBJECT(h)
FROM House h, IN(h.room) r
WHERE r = 'Kitchen'

Hi-

I guess when you say a 1--* relationship, it's more better represented when the entities are different tables - House table and Room table (you know, normalization and stuff)
and, technically, when you say a collection-valued relation field - 'room', it's a getter method getRoom() (or more comfortably getRooms() when your cmr-field is 'rooms') which will return a Collection of local component interfaces of the Room entity bean (a different table), so that you can iterate thru them. your database might actually have to be modified as

in this case your EJB-QL would look something like -

hope this helps
