Hello ObjectDB team,

I receive following exception in my application:

I've already narrowed the cause to the fact that I use JPA criteria query API, and I pass an empty collection to IN expression:

   CriteriaBuilder cb = em.getCriteriaBuilder();
   CriteriaQuery<Service> cq = cb.createQuery(Service.class);
   Root<Service> rootService = cq.from(Service.class);
   cq.where(rootService.get("key").in(templateKeys)); //templateKeys is empty by mistake
   List<Service> services = em.createQuery(cq).getResultList();

As exception itself is nothing wrong here I guess (at least other JPA providers also throw on empty IN parameter), the exception message could be better, I believe.


Additionally, I would like to state that I would really love to see support for static metamodel in ObjectDB implementation of both JPA criteria API and JDO typed queries - it would make interoperability between ObjectDB and other JPA providers much better. Currently, when I implement parts of application with ObjectDB, and other parts with (for example) Hibernate, I cannot use static metamodel in common code :(


Best Regards,



Build 2.7.3_03 fixes the bug. Thank you for the report.
