public interface From<Z,X>
extends Path<X>, FetchParent<Z,X>

Represents a bound type, usually an entity that appears in the from clause, but may also be an embeddable belonging to an entity in the from clause.

Serves as a factory for Joins of associations, embeddables, and collections belonging to the type, and for Paths of attributes belonging to the type.

Since:
Java Persistence 2.0
