Advanced filtering syntax for textual and reference properties

When Jspresso displays a filter on a textual or reference property (in a filter module by instance), the user can leverage an advanced syntax in order to query the underlying business objects. Here is a short summary of the various options :

  • # means “is null”, i.e. not set
  • ! means “not”
  • & means “and”, i.e. conjunction
  • ; means “or”, i.e. disjunction
  • % is the muti-character wildcard
  • _ is the single-character wildcard


Of course, you can combine them like :
!bad%;# meaning “Does not start by ‘bad’ or is null”
