extends Expression<java.lang.Boolean>

The type of a simple or compound predicate: a conjunction or disjunction of restrictions. A simple predicate is considered to be a conjunction with a single conjunct.

Method Detail

getOperator

Predicate.BooleanOperator getOperator()
Return the boolean operator for the predicate. If the predicate is simple, this is AND.

Returns:
boolean operator for the predicate

isNegated

boolean isNegated()
Whether the predicate has been created from another predicate by applying the Predicate.not() method or the CriteriaBuilder.not() method.

Returns:
boolean indicating if the predicate is a negated predicate

getExpressions

java.util.List<Expression<java.lang.Boolean>> getExpressions()
Return the top-level conjuncts or disjuncts of the predicate. Returns empty list if there are no top-level conjuncts or disjuncts of the predicate. Modifications to the list do not affect the query.

Returns:
list of boolean expressions forming the predicate

not

Predicate not()
Create a negation of the predicate.

Returns:
negated predicate
