Class MethodBaseQueryRedirector

  extended by oracle.toplink.queryframework.MethodBaseQueryRedirector
All Implemented Interfaces:, QueryRedirector

public class MethodBaseQueryRedirector
extends java.lang.Object
implements QueryRedirector

Purpose: Allows a class to be a QueryRedirector without implementing QueryRedirector.

Description: Normally to define a Redirector a Class must implement QueryRedirector and the required QueryRedirector.invokeQuery(DatabaseQuery, Record, Session).

To maintain transparency it is possible to instead only define a static method that takes the same arguments as invokeQuery.

An instance of MethodBaseQueryRedirector can be constructed, taking the name of that static method and the Class in which it is defined as parameters.

Whenever invokeQuery is called on this instance reflection will automatically be used to invoke the custom method instead.




// First create a named query, define a redirector for it, and add the query // to the query manager. ReadObjectQuery query = new ReadObjectQuery(Employee.class); query.setName("findEmployeeByAnEmployee"); query.addArgument("employee"); MethodBaseQueryRedirector redirector = new MethodBaseQueryRedirector(QueryRedirectorTest.class, "findEmployeeByAnEmployee"); query.setRedirector(redirector); ClassDescriptor descriptor = getSession().getDescriptor(query.getReferenceClass()); descriptor.getQueryManager().addQuery(query.getName(), query); // Now execute the query by name, passing in an Employee as an argument. Vector arguments = new Vector(); arguments.addElement(employee); objectFromDatabase = getSession().executeQuery("findEmployeeByAnEmployee", Employee.class, arguments); // Note this Class does not implement QueryRedirector or method invokeQuery. public class QueryRedirectorTest { public static Object findEmployeeByAnEmployee(DatabaseQuery query, Record arguments, Session session) { ((ReadObjectQuery) query).setSelectionObject(arguments.get("employee")); return session.executeQuery(query); } }

Constructor Detail


public MethodBaseQueryRedirector()
Returns a new query redirector.


public MethodBaseQueryRedirector(java.lang.Class methodClass,
                                 java.lang.String methodName)
Returns a new query redirector based on the static method in methodClass.

Method Detail


public java.lang.Class getMethodClass()
Returns the class to execute the static method on.


public java.lang.String getMethodName()
Returns the name of the static method. This method must be public, static and have argument of DatabaseQuery, Vector, Session.

See Also:


public void setMethodClass(java.lang.Class newMethodClass)
Sets the class to execute the static method on.


public void setMethodName(java.lang.String newMethodName)
Sets the name of the static method.

This method must be public, static and have arguments of DatabaseQuery, Record, and Session.

The DatabaseQuery argument is the query that is currently being executed.

The Record will contain the Argument names added to the Query through addArgument(Sting) or, in the case of an Object query, the object attribute field names. These names will reference the argument values passed into the query, or in the case of an Object Query the values from the object.

The session argument is the session that the query is currently being executed on.

Alternatively the method can take only (Session session, Vector arguments) as parameters.
