Sadly the wiki documentation does not appear to be available for this topic

Check the Wiki for the 1:N and M:N N+1 selects stuff ... I think that's what
you're looking for.

Does anyone know how I could (if possible) build a hierarchy of objects
using a single SQL statement.  Is this possible?

For example I have a SQL table of BOXES.  A BOX can contain other BOXES and
so on, like:

class BOX {
       public void id();
       public void parentBoxId();
       public BOX getChild();

my sql would be something like:

select * from boxes b1, boxes b2
where b1.id = b2.parentBoxId;

result is a big list of boxes but I want the parent / child hierarchy.

anyway to do this?  know what I mean?
