That is what,|
"Select b, a from A a left join a.b b"
would generate? I assume you want "B b LEFT OUTER JOIN A a" though.
I guess there is no way to do this in JPA without adding the bidirectional relationship, or using native SQL.
In EclipseLink, you can add a OneToOneQueryKey that allows you to define a relationship without having a mapping for it. You can then use the query key in EclipseLink Expression queries. Unfortunately, query keys are not currently supported in JPQL queries (please log a bug for this and vote for it).
