Subject Using Ibats with Group By and sums, etc
Date Mon, 28 Apr 2008 14:35:28 GMT

I am working on an ongoing project that uses Ibatis to an AS/400, mapping each table to an
Ibatis object, with simple "get" and "getAll" type of Selects, and all is well. But now I
need to do something more complex using SQL's SUM and GROUP BY functions, and I can't seem
to make it work for me...

In my sqlMap XML file, I have a resultMap for the full object that represents my file, and
queries on that. Like this : 
    <resultMap id="ledgerResult" class=".....LedgerIbatis">
        <result column= "BCUS" property = "customerRef" />
        <result column= "BCMP" property = "companyCode" />
        <result column= "BDPT" property = "departmentCode" />
        <result column= "BVAL" property = "value" />

    <select id="getLedgersForCustomer"
        select '$library$' as library,
                where BCUS = #customerRef#                

With a Java object called LedgerIbatis that has a property for every item above, ie library,
customerRef,companyCode, departmentCode and value. And this works fine!

Now I need to add a cut-down object that just represents several keys, plus a total value.
I need to get the total value for every unique combination of companyCode and departmentCode
for a given customerRef. So, this is what I'm trying to do here : 

    <resultMap id="ledgerTotalsResult" class="uk.co......LedgerTotalsIbatis">
        <result column= "BCUS" property = "customerRef" />
        <result column= "BCMP" property = "companyCode" />
        <result column= "BDPT" property = "departmentCode" />

With a Java object LedgerTotalsIbatis that has these properties : library, customerRef,companyCode,
departmentCode and valueTotal (to hold the new total value). And I'm trying this query : 

       <select id="getLedgerTotals"
        select   '$library$' as library,
         BCMP as companyCode, 
         BDPT as departmentCode, 
         SUM(BVAL) as valueTotal
                where BCUS = #customerRef#                
         group by 

I'm hoping for one row for every unique combination of companyCode & departmentCode that
exists for my customerRef, holding the total value of all the entries with that key combination.
What I'm getting is an "An undefined column name was detected" errormessage!

--- The error occurred in /..../Ledger.xml.  
--- The error occurred while applying a result map.  
--- Check the Ledger.ledgerTotalsResult.  
--- Check the result mapping for the 'companyCode' property.  
--- Cause: java.sql.SQLException: An undefined column name was detected.
Caused by: java.sql.SQLException: An undefined column name was detected.
	at com.ibatis.sqlmap.engine.mapping.statement.GeneralStatement.executeQueryWithCallback(GeneralStatement.java:185)
	at com.ibatis.sqlmap.engine.mapping.statement.GeneralStatement.executeQueryForList(GeneralStatement.java:123)
	etc, etc

And I don't see why this should be, as I'm clearly mapping the companyCode property. And I
know that I can explicitly set a value in the ResultMap (and thus the Java object) that's
not in the AS/400 table, as we do that with the library value... 

Anyone have a clue what's going on here, or how I shoud proceed for the best?

I'm hoping to do all this work in the SQL, rather than with embedded resultMaps and other
specific Ibatis features, as this query will later have to be more elaborate, taking data
from more than one file, etc.
