Constructor. Supply values to test.

Method Detail


public ExpState initialize(Select sel,
                           ExpContext ctx,
                           Map contains)
Description copied from interface: Exp
Initialize the expression. This method should recursively initialize any sub-expressions or values.

Specified by:
initialize in interface Exp
initialize in class CompareEqualExpression
contains - map of relation paths to the number of times the paths appear in a contains() expression; used to ensure paths used for contains() within the same AND expression used different aliases


protected boolean isDirectComparison()
Description copied from class: CompareEqualExpression
Subclasses can override this method if, when they compare to another, value, the comparison is indirect. For example, field.contains (x) should compare element values to null, not the field itself.
