Class Expr

java.lang.Object
  extended by com.avaje.ebean.Expr

public class Expr
extends Object

    

Expression factory for creating standard expressions for WHERE and HAVING clauses.

Generally you will only need to use this object for creating OR, JUNCTION or CONJUNCTION expressions. To create simple expressions you will most likely just use the methods on the ExpressionList object that is returned via Query.where().

This provides a convenient way to create expressions for the 'Default' server. It is actually a short cut for using the ExpressionFactory of the 'default' EbeanServer.

See also Ebean.getExpressionFactory()

Creates standard common expressions for using in a Query Where or Having clause.

  // Example: Using an Expr.or() method
 Query<Order> query = Ebean.createQuery(Order.class);
 query.where( 
                Expr.or(Expr.eq("status", Order.NEW),
                    Expr.gt("orderDate", lastWeek));
     
 List<Order> list = query.findList();
 ...
