How do you “OR” criteria together when using a criteria query with hibernate?

I’m trying to do a basic “OR” on three fields using a hibernate criteria query.


class Whatever{
 string name;
 string address;
 string phoneNumber;

I’d like to build a criteria query where my search string could match “name” or “address” or “phoneNumber”.


You want to use Restrictions.disjuntion(). Like so

        .add(Restrictions.eq("name", queryString))
        .add(Restrictions.eq("address", queryString))
        .add(Restrictions.eq("phoneNumber", queryString))

See the Hibernate doc here.
