Assign the result of a simple query to a variable/parameter with different structure

By Ricardo Araújo on 26 May 2010

Specially when we are integrating with other systems we need to create an structure to send just 2 attributes of our Entity, and in those cases we need to design an advanced query instead of doing a simple query to retrieve that 2 attributes.

Hmmm, this makes me question of when is that "intelligence" of the compiler working.

I question this because there are some situations when the compiler analyses the use of the query outputs, and builds the query with only the needed attribute.
