Hi Samer.

Can GraphQL cope with queries that would require more complex SQL e.g. outer joins, paging (including child rows), stats (sum, count) etc.?


Thanks
Don.

That's a similar question to https://coderanch.com/t/740519/java/Graphql-usage-joining-multiple-tables. GraphQL is more a description language (i.e., which data a client wants) than a query language, and as such is not involved with the details of retrieving that data. That can be as complex or as simple as warranted.
