Construction of Object-Oriented Queries Towards Relational Data: In View of Industrial Practices
MetadataShow full item record
The focus of this work is querying relational data through an object-relational mapper (ORM). In Java projects, it is common to use the Hibernate ORM and write the queries using HQL and Criteria. These approaches have limitations in regard to readability and static analysis. The limitations are identified and explained in this thesis. Several possible solutions are discussed. One of the solutions is looked at in depth and implemented in a real world project. The described solution eases the construction of queries and provides a way to fully utilize the development support tools.
