Class HqlExpression

All Implemented Interfaces:
Expression, QueryElement, Restriction

public class HqlExpression
extends Object
implements Expression, Restriction
A class holding an expression or a restriction where a prefix can be used to represent a root alias in a HQL. I.e. $name = 'somename' could be used for all items that have a name property. '$' will be replaced with the right root alias when the restriction is used in a query, $name = 'somename' will be = 'somename' in a query for the user table.
