Title: Processing an object-oriented query to retrieve data from a data source

Abstract: An object-oriented query to retrieve data from a data source stored on a data storage device connected to a computer is processed. One implementation involves receiving a Java Query Language (JQL) user query, compiling the JQL query using a Java compliant compiler, and detecting any compilation error due to a syntax error in the JQL query. If a compilation error is detected, then informing the user of the compilation error such that the user may correct the syntax error in the JQL query. Otherwise if a compilation error is not detected, then processing the JQL query for execution.
