I want to use leftJoin with the optional onClause. I have been unable to get this to work. Here's the example from the documentation for ExpressionBuilder.leftJoin:
 Expression address = employee.getAllowingNull("address");
 employee.leftJoin(address, address.get("city").equal("Ottawa"));

Here's my code
JpaQuery<Entity> query = (JpaQuery<Entity>) japEm.createQuery(expression, entityClass);
ReadAllQuery raQuery = (ReadAllQuery) query.getDatabaseQuery();
Expression insurance = expressionBuilder.anyOfAllowingNone("insurances");
expressionBuilder.leftJoin(insurance, insurance.get("insuredIdNumber").equal("11111111"));

return query;

I'm not sure where you got the example from, but it is using an EclipseLink query object and expressions to build a query while you are using JPA and then trying to modify the EclipseLink query underneath. It is possible, but you would be better off sticking with EclipseLink's JPA support for the ON clause, which was not a part of the JPA specification. EclipseLink supports the use of the ON clause in JPQL, and in criteria queries if you cast the join to org.eclipse.persistence.internal.jpa.querydef.JoinImpl
An example is posted here
