Query Language Elements

This section discusses various aspects and tools of the native client query engine.

  • Method Invocation

    The query language supports method invocation inside query expressions.

  • Supported Query Language Literals

    Query language expressions can contain literals as well as operators and attribute names. The client supports many types of literals.

  • Type Conversions

    Java rules within a query string require the query processor to perform implicit conversions and promotions under certain cases in order to evaluate expressions that contain different types.
