EJB-QL with non-CM fields

is it possible to write an EJB-QL query that uses normal CMP entity beans, together with plain database fields (not wrapped with an e-bean).

With other words, I need to write a where clause that does something like this:

WHERE myBean.thingyFK.value = ?1

'myBean' is a normal entity bean and has a foreign key to a database table 'thingy'. From this table, I need the column 'value'. The table 'thingy' has no entity bean. (And it is not possible to introduce a new entity bean for this...)

Otherwise I'll have to use a fastlane or something, but at this point I rather want the EJB-QL solution.

Thanks a lot!

EJBQL is writting for an abstract schema. You describe the schema in the ejb-jar.xml file. So only fields described in the ejb-jar.xml can be used in a ejb query.
Oh sure, it's a tiny ad, but under the right circumstances, it gets bigger.
