Hi, this is a funny one, when the value of the testBoolean
column for row "testuser" is false this named query
works ok, when it's true I get NoResultException. A bug?

@NamedQuery(name = "User.Test", query = "SELECT u.testBoolean FROM User u WHERE u.userName = ?1"),
@Column(name = "testBoolean")
    private Boolean testBoolean = false;

Query query = em.createNamedQuery("User.Test");
        query.setParameter(1, "testuser");

        try {
            result = (Boolean) query.getSingleResult();
        } catch (NoResultException e) {
            result = null;

Hello Brendan,

Feel free to file one, but I'm not sure you should be using getSingleResult() as it cannot distinguish between a null value and no values being returned. Try using getResultLitst(), but you will still get null values in the collection.

The problem is that you are defaulting the testBoolean value to false. Check the value in the database, but I believe that when you are persisting a value of false nothing is being sent to the database because nothing has changed. So the database column remains null. Try leaving the testBoolean uninitialized in the default constructor, and instead set it in other constructors and/or application code. This will cause EclipseLink to see that it has been set and persist a value to the database.

Best Regards,

That is very odd.

What SQL is generated, if you execute the same SQL what result do you get?

(FYI initializing your field to false should not have any issues, and should not affect what is inserted).

Good morning together,

so here is a 5 year old thread which fits very good to my own problem, maybe we could restart the conversation about it.

in my oracle database i have a column with the datatype Number(1,0) and its not nullable.

In the code the field is declared like this:
   @Column(name = "VO_RELEVANTFLAG", nullable = false)
   private boolean                        voRelevantflag;

My query:

  query = entityManager.createQuery("SELECT x.voRelevantflag" //
                                             + "FROM " + AuBE.class.getSimpleName() );

      final Object resultObject = query.getResultList();

Like the creator of this thread i got FALSE if the column is 0 but i got an empty list if the column is 1.

I have updated the columns (switched between 1 and 0) via the oracle sql developer so the value is definitely set and if i execute the sql statement in the sql developer i can see the correct values.

I have tested it with EclipseLink 3.2.0 (which we are currently using) and newer versions like 3.4.0 and 2.6.0-M3 but nothing has changed.
How is this possible? Is this an old bug and noone else cares?

Thank you for you help.
kind regards
