Criterion won't compile
I'm trying to use the Criterion class from ch23 and the compiler is complaining about a few statements like this:

return b.lessThan(r.<Comparable> get(c.getPropertyName()), getComparable(c));
with the error:
"The method lessThan(Expression<? extends Y>, Expression<? extends Y>) in the type CriteriaBuilder is not applicable for the arguments (Path<Comparable>, Comparable<capture#4-of ?>)".

It looks like the getComparable(Criterion c) method is not valid with latest JPA API (I'm using 2.1:1.0.0.Final), but I'm not certain yet - still investigating.

Any ideas?

I have managed to get rid of the compiler error by removing the

from this signature:

private static Comparable<?> getComparable(Criterion c)
Still not sure if this is a correct fix though - I'll test soon.

That's not the correct fix, because it reduces type safety in the code. But I can't figure out why this isn't working for you.

This code was tested with org.eclipse.persistence:javax.persistence:2.1.0. That's the same version you are using, but it's possible you're using a different library. Are you using org.eclipse.persistence:javax.persistence or something else? What's your full Java version? Who supplied the compiler (Oracle, Eclipse, or some other company)?

Hi, thanks for looking into this.
I am using java 1.8 (by Oracle on Mac with Eclipse Mars).
I'm also using Hibernate: 'org.hibernate.javax.persistence:hibernate-jpa-2.1-api:1.0.0.Final'.

Looking at the Oracle JPA api docs, the CriteriaBuilder.lessThan signature (and the other "comparing" ones) look to match the ones from the Hibernate library I'm using: http://docs.oracle.com/javaee/6/api/...iaBuilder.html

It also looks to match the EclipseLink API also... http://www.eclipse.org/eclipselink/a...iaBuilder.html
