The Wellington Java User Group serves as a focal point for those in Wellington, New Zealand, who are interested in the Java programming language, and the Java Virtual Machine platform.
We aim to meet on the third Wednesday of every month to discuss Java related topics. The user group is run on a purely voluntary basis. There are no fees, and all are welcome.
We are always on the lookout for people to present topics at our meetings.
If you have something to say, or you have ideas and would like to participate, please contact us!
Querydsl - Unified Queries for Java
What is Querydsl? Querydsl is a Java framework which allows for generation of type-safe queries in a syntax very similar to SQL. The framework provides a number of modules for supporting a variety of backends, including JPA, SQL, Lucene and even Java Collections. This session will focus on the Querydsl framework and show a number of examples of each of the modules.
The benefits of using a fluent API in comparison to simple strings are for example
- code completion in IDE
- almost no syntactically invalid queries allowed
- domain types and properties can be referenced safely
- adopts better to refactoring changes in domain types
