    Unable to query API using date type (before/after)

    • Article Type: General

    Description:
    Trying to query the repository via the API using the createDate and updateDate elements (SP #777)

    When I use this search

    <x_condition>
    <type>before</type>
    <element>createDate</element>
    <value>01/11/2008</value>
    </x_condition>

    I get the following result

    <x_result total_num_results="0" num_results="0">
    <error>true</error>
    <error_description>Failed to count number of entities </error_description>
    </x_result>

    And this is logged to server.log
    2008-10-17 13:35:56,608 INFO [com.exlibris.digitool.repository.explore.ExploreTaskInvoker] DIGITAL ENTITY QUERY: select hc from HDeControl hc where hc.createDate < to_date('01/11/2008','MM/dd/yyyy') hc.owner='DTL01' and order by hc.pid desc

    It appears that the sql is incorrect - should be hc.createDate < to_date('01/11/2008','MM/dd/yyyy') AND hc.owner='DTL01'order by hc.pid desc


    When I try to search on updateDate

    <x_condition>
    <type>after</type>
    <element>updateDate</element>
    <value>01/11/2008</value>
    </x_condition>

    The API doesn't return an error -- but the log file implies that the search isn't be done correctly:

    2008-10-17 13:38:56,557 INFO [com.exlibris.digitool.repository.explore.ExploreTaskInvoker] DIGITAL ENTITY QUERY: select hc from HDeControl hc where hc.owner='DTL01'and contains(INDEXXML,'01/11/2008 WITHIN updateDate ')>0 order by hc.pid desc


    This is expected to be fixed for SP 23
