Results

Once you have concatenated criterias together, you can execute the query via the execution methods. Please remember that these methods return the results, so they must be executed last.

Method

Description

count( propertyName="" )

Note, count() can't be called on a criteria after list() has been executed.

get()

Retrieve one result only.

getOrFail()

Convenience method to return a single instance that matches the built up criterias query, or throws an exception if the query returns no results

list(

max,

offset,

timeout,

sortOrder,

ignoreCase, asQuery=false

asStream=false

)

Execute the criterias and give you the results.

// Get
var results = c.idEq( 4 ).get();
// Listing
var results = c
.like("name", "lui%")
.list();
// Count via projections of all users that start with the letter 'L'
var count = c.ilike("name","L%").count();

Tip: You can call count() and list() on the same criteria, but due to the internal workings of Hibernate, you must call count() first, then list().
