Thanks Jeff:


Should have been more specific (long day) - iBATIS doesn't distinguish
the names - thought there might be some magic way to do this. No


Thanks for the help - answered both questions.

1. Define "the join doesn't work".  If you mean that the database chokes
on f.bork and b.bork then you have a seriously messed up database and
you should throw it out immediatly.


If you mean that iBATIS can't distingush between the different columns,
then that is correct behavior.  You need to rename at least one of the
columns (and the corresponding propery in your result object):


select f.bork, b.bork as ANOTHER_BORK

from ...


2.  Batches are only for inserts, updates, deletes.  They do not apply
for selects.

I'm new to iBATIS, but loving it so far - decided to go with iBATIS as
opposed to Hibernate for simplicity, and to have arguably more control
over the SQL. I have a couple questions (apologies if these are covered
in hthe FAQ, but I couldn't find): 


1. I have a pretty complex join, and so am using the groupBy pattern
(whereby the ResultMap for the top level object references child
resultMaps, with groupBy, and using LEFT OUTER joins) - basically
straight from the docs. It looks something like: 


<select id="Foo.select_by_id" parameterClass="string"


    f.name <http://f.name/> , f.address, f.phone,

    t.colour, t.shape, t.size

  FROM Foo f

  LEFT OUTER JOIN Bar b on f.ID <http://f.id/>  = b.ID <http://b.id/> 

  WHERE f.name <http://f.name/>  = #value#;



This is cool - my real code has many more JOINs, but you get the idea.


The problem is, if both the Foo table *and* the Bar table contain a
column with the * same* name, then the JOIN doesn't work, even when
distinguished as f.bork and b.bork.


Is there a workaround for this? 


2. Due to the problem above, I'm running a number of select queries, and
building up the result (ie. in the example above, I'd make one query for
the Bar object(s) and then the Foo object and call foo.setBar(bar) to
build things up. 


The question - if I put this in a batch statement, can I expect a good
performance boost?


Any help or tips on how best to structure this stuff is appreciated -
I"m comfortable with Java, but not much of a SQL expert (at all). 


Any help is greatly appreciated.






ps. iBATIS is great so far. :)
