All pages

select * from mgnl:content

//element(*, mgnl:content)

select * from [mgnl:page]

Pages with "News" in the title

select * from mgnl:content where title like '%News%'

//element(*, mgnl:content)[jcr:like(@title, '%News%')]

select * from [mgnl:page] where title like '%News%'

Pages where the title exactly matches "News" (case sensitive)

select * from mgnl:content where title like 'News'

//element(*, mgnl:content)[@title = 'News']

select * from [mgnl:page] where title like 'News'

STK pages that have a header image

select * from mgnl:content where image is not null

//element(*, mgnl:content)[@image]

select * from [mgnl:page] where image is not null

Instances of a "Teaser" paragraph

select * from nt:base where mgnl:template = 'stkTeaser'

//*[@mgnl:template = 'stkTeaser']

select * from [nt:base] where [mgnl:template] = 'standard-templating-kit:components/teasers/stkTeaser'

Available paragraph types

select * from nt:base where jcr:path like '/modules/%/paragraphs/%' and type is not null

/jcr:root/modules[1]///paragraphs[1]//[@type]

 


User with email 'eric@example.com'

select * from mgnl:user where email = 'eric@example.com'

//element(*, mgnl:user)[@email = 'eric@example.com']

select * from [mgnl:user] where email = 'eric@example.com'

Pages that have the word "component"

SELECT * from nt:base WHERE jcr:path like '/ftl-sample-site%' AND contains(*, 'component') AND (jcr:primaryType = 'mgnl:page' OR jcr:primaryType = 'mgnl:area' OR jcr:primaryType = 'mgnl:component') order by jcr:path

 


SELECT * from [nt:base] AS t WHERE ISDESCENDANTNODE('/ftl-sample-site') AND contains(t.*, 'component')

Template folders in module configuration

select * from mgnl:content where jcr:path like '/modules/%/templates'

 


select * from [mgnl:content] as t where ISDESCENDANTNODE('/modules') and name(t) = 'templates'

Modules that provide commands

select * from nt:base where jcr:path like '/modules/%/commands'

 


select * from [mgnl:content] as t where ISDESCENDANTNODE('/modules') and name(t) = 'commands'

All pages with a specific template ordered by title

 

 



SELECT p.* FROM [nt:base] AS p WHERE [mgnl:template] = 'xxx:pages/jobs' order by p.[title] asc

Pages under given path with given templateselect * from nt:base where jcr:path like '/demo-project/%' AND mgnl:template = 'standard-templating-kit:stkNews' 

SELECT parent.*
FROM [mgnl:page] AS parent
INNER JOIN [mgnl:metaData] AS child ON ISCHILDNODE(child,parent)
WHERE
ISDESCENDANTNODE(parent, '/demo-project')
AND child.[mgnl:template] = 'standard-templating-kit:stkNews'

 


** When using this query, one need to get results via getRows() instead of getNodes() since queries w/ joins can eventually return multiple different node types.

Pages under given path with given template and category ordered by date 
/jcr:root/demo-project//element(*, mgnl:metaData)[@mgnl:template = 'standard-templating-kit:pages/stkArticle']/..[@categories = 'ab9437db-ab2c-4df5-bb41-87e55409e8e1'] order by @date 
Search a Node with a certain UUIDselect * from nt:base where jcr:uuid = '7fd401be-cada-4634-93fa-88069f46297b' 
SELECT * FROM [nt:base] WHERE [jcr:uuid] = '7fd401be-cada-4634-93fa-88069f46297b'
Search case insensitiveselect * from nt:base where lower(name) like 'name_in_lowercase' 
select * from [nt:base] where lower(name) like 'name_in_lowercase'
Search demo-project pages created in given time frame  

select * from [mgnl:page] where ISDESCENDANTNODE('/demo-project/') and [jcr:created] > cast('2010-01-01T00:00:00.000+02:00' as date) and [jcr:created] < cast('2014-09-30T23:59:59.000+02:00' as date)
Pages in 'demo-project' which using a specific template ('stkSection' for example) and has the content just been modified by 'eric' 
/jcr:root/demo-project/*[mgnl:template='standard-templating-kit:pages/stkSection']/*/content[mgnl:lastModifiedBy='eric']/../.. 

Get all nodes which have a property 'date' which is not empty and this date starts at least 1 second after current midnight. Useful for events.

  

SELECT p.* FROM [nt:base] AS p WHERE ISDESCENDANTNODE('/') AND (p.[date] <> '' AND p.[date] > CAST('2015-11-30T00:00:01.000Z' AS DATE)) order by p.[date] asc


Get all nodes which have any property with a given value. E.g., useful for finding references to a give uuid. 

SELECT * FROM [nt:base] WHERE contains([nt:base].*, '4055e292-7b01-4075-b4c8-47d73e2e7d47')

Java code example for 'date' query:

Code Pro
languagejava
usertomwespi
Date today = Calendar.getInstance().getTime();
SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-MM-dd");
Calendar c = Calendar.getInstance();
c.setTime(today); // Now use today date.
String path = "/";

// future events
c.add(Calendar.DATE, -1); // minus 1 day
String date = sdf.format(c.getTime());
String statement = "SELECT p.* FROM [nt:base] AS p WHERE ISDESCENDANTNODE('" + path + "') AND (p.[date] <> '' " + "AND p.[date] > CAST('" + date
        + "T00:00:01.000Z' AS DATE)) "
        + "order by p.[date] asc";


 Note: you can use the translator to convert from one format to another.
