In Hibernate, you can use a nested property as a named parameter in a query by using the dot notation to access the nested property. The dot notation allows you to traverse the object graph and refer to nested properties in your query. Here's how you can use a nested property as a named parameter in a Hibernate query:

Assuming you have two entities: Parent and Child, where Parent has a property named child that refers to a Child object:

@Entity public class Parent { // Other properties and mappings @OneToOne private Child child; // Getters and setters } @Entity public class Child { // Properties and mappings for Child entity // Getters and setters }

Now, let's say you want to write a Hibernate query that filters the Parent entities based on a property of the Child entity. You can use the dot notation in the query to refer to the nested property:

String queryString = "SELECT p FROM Parent p WHERE = :childName"; Query query = entityManager.createQuery(queryString); query.setParameter("childName", "John Doe"); List<Parent> parents = query.getResultList();

In this example, refers to the name property of the Child entity that is nested within the Parent entity. The named parameter :childName is used to provide the value for the name property of the Child entity in the query.

Make sure that the entity associations are correctly mapped in your Hibernate entities, and the dot notation in the query matches the object graph structure.

Using the dot notation with named parameters allows you to create more complex queries that involve nested properties in your Hibernate entities. It's a powerful feature of Hibernate that enables you to navigate and filter based on relationships between entities in your object model.
