Annotation Type Where

  • @Target({TYPE,METHOD,FIELD})
    public @interface Where
    Specifies a restriction written in native SQL to add to the generated SQL when querying an entity or collection.

    For example, @Where("deleted = false") could be used to hide entity instances which have been soft-deleted.

    Note that Where restrictions are always applied and cannot be disabled. They're therefore much less flexible than filters.
