I'm a very simple question that I'm not able to solve, how can I make a named Query using left join fetch to load only the children who are in a condition?

I'm using eclipselink (JPQL) and JPA 2.x:

This is my named Query:

    SELECT step
    FROM StepEntity step
    left join fetch step.precedentsSteps precedentStep 
        ON precedentStep.isCondition = :isCondition
        and = :stepCode
        and = :country 
        and = :stageCode  
    WHERE = :stepCode
    AND = :country 
    and = :stageCode

step.precedentsSteps is a @OneToMany(targetEntity=PrecedentStepEntity.class, fetch=FetchType.LAZY, mappedBy = "step")

When I use the left join fetch it is bringing all the children that are in the Step entity and I just want it load the collection on the condition = true;

I am very grateful for the help already

Queries are meant to return managed objects that reflect exactly what is in the database, and allows for different layers of caching that would be affected if queries brought in different views of an entity. As such, you can't build a query to return managed entity instance that are incomplete, at least not directly. If this is required, I would normally recommend you use a separate query for the relationship that you filter as needed rather then include it in the entity. Or add a getter method that filters the collection so that the full collection is maintained, but your application has access to the partial collection where isCondition is true or false.

What you are asking for is refered to as mapping selection criteria in Eclipselink ( but it isn't usually dynamic. It can probably be made dynamic with redirector queries as suggested here though I haven't seen it done.
