Hi all
I would like to count the green eye kittens,
This HQL fetch query works fine:


but when i add the count(*)


I got this Exception (MSSQL):

Column 'cat.kittens' is invalid in the select list because it is not contained in an aggregate function and there is no GROUP BY clause.



What am I doing wrong?
Thank you!

Once I removed the "fetch" keyword from the query it miraculously work...
 
I don't like that guy. The tiny ad agrees with me.
