Constructor Detail

CharacterExpression

protected CharacterExpression(QueryExpression qs)
Constructor

Parameters:
qs - the QueryExpression

CharacterExpression

public CharacterExpression(QueryExpression qs,
                           JavaTypeMapping mapping,
                           LogicSetExpression te)
Parameters:
qs - the QueryExpression
mapping - the mapping associated to this expression
te - the TableExpression where this expression refers to

CharacterExpression

public CharacterExpression(java.lang.String functionName,
                           java.util.List args)
Generates statement as e.g. FUNCTION_NAME(arg[,argN]). The function returns a character value

Parameters:
functionName -
args - ScalarExpression list
Method Detail

eq

public BooleanExpression eq(ScalarExpression expr)
Description copied from class: ScalarExpression
Equality operator (equals to)

Overrides:
eq in class ScalarExpression
Parameters:
expr - the right-hand operand
Returns:
The type of an equality expression is a boolean

noteq

public BooleanExpression noteq(ScalarExpression expr)
Description copied from class: ScalarExpression
Equality operator (not equals to)

Overrides:
noteq in class ScalarExpression
Parameters:
expr - the right-hand operand
Returns:
The type of an equality expression is a boolean

lt

public BooleanExpression lt(ScalarExpression expr)
Description copied from class: ScalarExpression
Relational operator (lower than)

Overrides:
lt in class ScalarExpression
Parameters:
expr - the right-hand operand
Returns:
true if the value of the left-hand operand is less than the value of the right-hand operand, and otherwise is false.

lteq

public BooleanExpression lteq(ScalarExpression expr)
Description copied from class: ScalarExpression
Relational operator (lower than or equals)

Overrides:
lteq in class ScalarExpression
Parameters:
expr - the right-hand operand
Returns:
true if the value of the left-hand operand is less than or equal to the value of the right-hand operand, and otherwise is false.

gt

public BooleanExpression gt(ScalarExpression expr)
Description copied from class: ScalarExpression
Relational operator (greater than)

Overrides:
gt in class ScalarExpression
Parameters:
expr - the right-hand operand
Returns:
true if the value of the left-hand operand is greater than the value of the right-hand operand, and otherwise is false.

gteq

public BooleanExpression gteq(ScalarExpression expr)
Description copied from class: ScalarExpression
Relational operator (greater than or equals)

Overrides:
gteq in class ScalarExpression
Parameters:
expr - the right-hand operand
Returns:
true if the value of the left-hand operand is greater than or equal the value of the right-hand operand, and otherwise is false.

add

public ScalarExpression add(ScalarExpression expr)
Description copied from class: ScalarExpression
Additive Operator. The binary + operator performs addition when applied to two operands of numeric type, producing the sum of the operands. If the type of either operand of a + operator is String, then the operation is string concatenation.

Overrides:
add in class ScalarExpression
Parameters:
expr - the right-hand operand
Returns:
If one of the operands is String, the returned value is the string concatenation; The sum of two operands of numeric type. The left-hand operand is the minuend and the right-hand operand is the subtrahend;

sub

public ScalarExpression sub(ScalarExpression expr)
Description copied from class: ScalarExpression
Additive Operator. The binary - operator subtracts right-hand operand from left-hand operand.

Overrides:
sub in class ScalarExpression
Parameters:
expr - the right-hand operand
Returns:
The binary - operator performs subtraction when applied to two operands of numeric type producing the difference of its operands; the left-hand operand is the minuend and the right-hand operand is the subtrahend.

in

public BooleanExpression in(ScalarExpression expr)
Description copied from class: ScalarExpression
In expression. Return true if this is contained by expr

Overrides:
in in class ScalarExpression
Parameters:
expr - the right-hand expression
Returns:
true if the left-hand expression is contained by the right-hand expression. Otherwise the result is false.

toLowerCaseMethod

public CharacterExpression toLowerCaseMethod()
Converts the Character Expression to lower case

Returns:
the lowercased Character Expression

toUpperCaseMethod

public CharacterExpression toUpperCaseMethod()
Converts the Character Expression to upper case

Returns:
the uppercased Character Expression

mul

public ScalarExpression mul(ScalarExpression expr)
Description copied from class: ScalarExpression
Multiplication Operator

Overrides:
mul in class ScalarExpression
Parameters:
expr - the right-hand operator
Returns:
The binary * operator performs multiplication, producing the product of its operands.

div

public ScalarExpression div(ScalarExpression expr)
Description copied from class: ScalarExpression
Division Operator. The left-hand operand is the dividend and the right-hand operand is the divisor.

Overrides:
div in class ScalarExpression
Parameters:
expr - the right-hand operator
Returns:
The binary / operator performs division, producing the quotient of its operands

mod

public ScalarExpression mod(ScalarExpression expr)
Method to return a modulus expression.

Overrides:
mod in class ScalarExpression
Parameters:
expr - The expression to modulus against
Returns:
The modulus expression

neg

public ScalarExpression neg()
Description copied from class: ScalarExpression
Unary Minus Operator

Overrides:
neg in class ScalarExpression
Returns:
the type of the unary minus expression is the promoted type of the operand.

com

public ScalarExpression com()
Description copied from class: ScalarExpression
Bitwise Complement Operator

Overrides:
com in class ScalarExpression
Returns:
the type of the unary bitwise complement expression is the promoted type of the operand.

join

public ScalarExpression join(ScalarExpression expr)
