Invalid column name exception – JdbcPagingItemReader query with alias



Spring batch step fails when JdbcPagingItemReader query has a join and alias. It works fine when I remove the join and just do a simple query from employee table. Below is the code snippet that fails. Did anyone encounter such an issue ? Any help would be appreciated.

spring-batch-core-4.0.1.RELEASE spring-boot-2.0.0.RELEASE

@Autowired
    @Bean(destroyMethod = "")
    @StepScope
    public JdbcPagingItemReader<String> dbItemReader(final DataSource dataSource, final PreparedStatementSetter paramSetter) {
         return new JdbcPagingItemReaderBuilder<String>().name("dbReader").dataSource(dataSource)            .queryProvider(queryProvider(prodDataSource)).rowMapper((rs, rowNum) -> {
         return rs.getString("first_name");
         }).pageSize(1000).fetchSize(1000).build();
    }

@Bean
public PagingQueryProvider queryProvider(final DataSource dataSource) {
    final OraclePagingQueryProvider provider = new OraclePagingQueryProvider();
    provider.setSelectClause("select first_name");
    provider.setFromClause("from employee e join department d on e.dept_no= d.dept_no");
    provider.setWhereClause("where d.dept_name in ('HR','Marketing')");
    final Map<String, Order> sortKeys = new HashMap<String, Order>();
    sortKeys.put("e.dept_no", Order.ASCENDING);
    sortKeys.put("e.employee_id", Order.ASCENDING);
    provider.setSortKeys(sortKeys);
    try {
        return provider;
    } catch (final Exception e) {
        e.printStackTrace();
        return null;
    }
}

Answer

I would bet that using a JOIN is not going to work since it is the Page item reader. It needs a consistent list and primary key to work against. You might try creating your JOIN as a view with its own unique primary key and running your simple query against that.
