JPA, Entity manager, select many columns and get result list custom objects

How I can get list of custom objects, like results below query:

SELECT p.category.id, count(p.id) FROM Product p left join p.category c WHERE p.seller.id=:id GROUP BY c.id

By example:

return getEntityManager().createQuery("SELECT p.category.id, count(p.id) FROM Product p left join p.category c WHERE p.seller.id=:id GROUP BY c.id").setParameter("id", id).getResultList();

I need a map with category id and number of products in category.

Unfortunately, JPA doesn't provide a standard way to retrieve the results in a Map. However, building up your map manually by walking through the result list is simple enough:

TypedQuery<Object[]> q = getEntityManager().createQuery(
    "SELECT c.id, count(p.id) " +
    "FROM Product p LEFT JOIN p.category c " +
    "WHERE p.seller.id = :id " +
    "GROUP BY c.id", Object[].class).setParameter("id", id);

List<Object[]> resultList = q.getResultList();
Map<String, Long> resultMap = new HashMap<String, Long>(resultList.size());
for (Object[] result : resultList)
  resultMap.put((String)result[0], (Long)result[1]);

Assuming you are using hibernate(tagged), can try the below HQL query, I haven't tested.

SELECT new map(p.category.id as category_id, count(p.id) as id_count) FROM Product p left join p.category c WHERE p.seller.id=:id GROUP BY c.id


Using JPA 2.0 and EclipseLink impl

For the first question: list of custom objects(no table objects):

answer: create a custom model and use the @Entity and @Id

@Entity
public class QueryModelDTO implements Serializable{ 
    @Id
    private Integer categoryId;
    private int count;
    ---gets and sets
}

create the query and execute

QueryModelDTO qm = (QueryModelDTO) em.createQuery(
                "SELECT p.category.id as categoryId, count(p.id) as count FROM Product p
                left join p.category c WHERE p.seller.id=:id 
                GROUP BY c.id",QueryModelDTO.class)
                .setParameter("id", id).getSingleResult();

For the second: how to read the response on a map

answer: Use the QueryHints and ResultTypes (this is one variant for the @DannyMo answer)

Query q  = em.createNativeQuery("SELECT * FROM Foo f");
q.setHint(QueryHints.RESULT_TYPE, ResultType.Map);
List<Map> lm = q.getResultList();
    for (Map map : lm) {
        for (Object entry : map.entrySet()) {
            Map.Entry<DatabaseField, Object> e = (Map.Entry<DatabaseField, Object>) entry;
            DatabaseField key = e.getKey();
            Object value = e.getValue();
            log.debug(key+"="+value);
        }            
    }

I hope this helps
