NeoDatis Native Queries
Note that if you choose to use NeoDatis Criteria Queries then these are not portable to any other datastore. Use JDOQL/JPQL for portability

NeoDatis provides its own "criteria" query interface, and if you are using the JDO API you can utilise this for querying. To take a simple example

// Find all employees older than 31
Query q = pm.newQuery("Criteria", new CriteriaQuery(Employee.class,"age", 32)));

List results = (List)q.execute();

So we are utilising the JDO API to generate a query and passing in the NeoDatis "CriteriaQuery".
