3.9.1. Predefined JPQL Queries Configuration

In the CUBA application, predefined JPQL queries must be specified in files registered in the cuba.rest.queriesConfig application property of the web or portal module (e.g in the web-app.properties file):

cuba.rest.queriesConfig = +com/company/myapp/rest-queries.xml

The rest-queries.xml file must be placed in the root package of the web or portal module (e.g. com.company.myapp). Its content is defined by the rest-queries.xsd schema, for example:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<queries xmlns="http://schemas.haulmont.com/cuba/rest-queries.xsd">
    <query name="carByVin" entity="sample$Car" view="carEdit">
        <jpql><![CDATA[select c from sample$Car c where c.vin = :vin]]></jpql>
            <param name="vin" type="java.lang.String"/>
    <query name="allColours" entity="sample$Colour" view="_local">
        <jpql><![CDATA[select u from sample$Colour u order by u.name]]></jpql>
    <query name="carsByIds" entity="sample$Car" view="carEdit" cacheable="true">
        <jpql><![CDATA[select c from sample$Car c where c.id in :ids]]></jpql>
            <param name="ids" type="java.util.UUID[]"/>
    <query name="myOrders" entity="sample$Order" view="orderBrowse">
        <jpql><![CDATA[select o from sample$Order o where o.createdBy = :session$userLogin]]></jpql>

An example of how to configure and execute a query can be found in the Executing a JPQL Query (GET) and Executing a JPQL Query (POST) chapter.

The platform also provides the predefined all query for getting all instances of a specified entity type. It can be used with /count to receive the total number of entity instances, for example:


The query element can have the cacheable attribute that enables caching of the query.

A query can contain predefined parameters that take the values of the current user id and login: session$userId and session$userLogin. You don’t have to declare them in the params element (see the example above).
