java – How to turn this query into a JPQL?


I have the following query in the postgres database:

select * from trabalha_projeto tp inner join Empregado e on
e.matricula = tp.empregado

how do I turn it into a JPQL query?
I'm having a hard time returning the values:

  • First: not knowing how to formulate the query with jpql
  • Second: Due to the fact that it has two java entities, and to list them, it has three tables in the database

My two Employee and Project entities saw the tables:
Employee_Project (employee_enrolls,projects_code)

Here are my java classes:

Employee Class

@SequenceGenerator(name = "empregado_sequence", sequenceName = "empregado_sequence",
        allocationSize = 1, initialValue = 1)
public class Empregado implements Serializable {

    @GeneratedValue(strategy = GenerationType.SEQUENCE, generator = "empregado_sequence")
    private int matricula;
    private String nome;
    private Double salario;
    @OneToMany(cascade = CascadeType.ALL, targetEntity = Projeto.class ,fetch = FetchType.EAGER)
    private List<Projeto> projetos;

    public Empregado() {

Project Class

@SequenceGenerator(name = "projeto_sequence" , sequenceName = "projeto_sequence",
           allocationSize =  1 , initialValue = 1)
public class Projeto implements Serializable {

    @GeneratedValue(strategy = GenerationType.SEQUENCE , generator = "projeto_sequence")
    private int codigo;
    private String nome;

    public Projeto() {

How to return all employees working on a project using a join?


In HQL/JPQL Relational object queries, the query is made based on the Classes and not the database tables, without the names of the Classes/Fields it is difficult to give it to you exactly, but following the convention, your query would look like this:

from Projeto p join p.empregado

If the query does not work, check the name of your Classes and the join field (employee), also add the where clause if you have one.
