Sun StorageTek 5800 System Client API Reference Manual

Attribute Format in Queries

Any string in double quotes (for example, "filename") and any dotted string in Java Identifier format (for example, mp3.title) will automatically be treated as an attribute name. The double quotes can optionally be omitted even on a non-dotted name as long as the attribute does not match an SQL reserved word in any of the Sun StorageTek 5800 underlying metadata databases.

Attribute names must appear in the current 5800 system schema to be used in a query. This is because the proper type information about each attribute must be derived to build the query.
