Bug Description

I have a very simple test model with Person and Department, where person has a FK to department.

These are the Q-types:
        QPerson p = QPerson.person;
        QDepartment d = QDepartment.department;

The following command:
Is generating the following SQL:
delete from department
where not exists (select person
from person person
where person.department_id = id)

It seems there are 2 things wrong:
* The outer delete is not generating an alias, so the inner d.id is being translated as id alone, which is not right, and should be department.id
* The select person alone is invalid. Ideally, the .exists() and .notExists() would generate something like select 1 ...

Likewise, an update has the same error:

    DB.update(d).set(d.name, "AAA").where(DB.subQuery(p).where(p.departmentId.eq(d.id)).notExists()).execute();
Generates (also missing alias and column on the select part):
update department
set name = 'AAA'
where not exists (select person
from person person
where person.department_id = department.id)

Thanks for the bug report. It is a bug in the path serialization for DML clauses. Apparently in subqueries the full path needs always to be used.

Luis, what's the SQL engine you are using here?

Got both fixed :

    public void Delete_with_SubQuery_exists(){
        QSurvey survey1 = new QSurvey("s1");
        QEmployee employee = new QEmployee("e");
        SQLDeleteClause delete = new SQLDeleteClause(connection, SQLTemplates.DEFAULT,survey1);
        delete.where(survey1.name.eq("XXX"), new SQLSubQuery().from(employee).where(survey1.id.eq(employee.id)).exists());
        assertEquals("delete from SURVEY\n" +
              "where SURVEY.NAME = ? and exists (select 1\n" +
              "from EMPLOYEE2 e\n" +
              "where SURVEY.ID = e.ID)", delete.toString());
