I've found a bug when doing a group by, I've reduced my faulty query to a really small query, and can still reproduce the problem. This is the query:

@foreach (var tmp in (
        from t in Query.All<Line>()
        group t by t
            into t3
            select new
                Test = t3.Key,
                Test2 = t3.Key.ItemVersionsUntyped.Count()
        Entity: @tmp.Test.Id<br />
        EntitySet (SQL): @tmp.Test2<br /> <!--This will return 0, which is wrong -->
        EntitySet (LINQ): @tmp.Test.ItemVersionsUntyped.Count() <!-- This will return 1, which is correct -->

The model is quite large, in code, but it's like this, more or less (omitting [Field] etc. The special ItemItemVersionsEntitySet is just to enforce some special constraints when adding to the entityset):

class ItemItemVersionsEntitySet : EntitySet<IItemVersionBase>
abstract class ItemBase : Entity, IItemBase {}
abstract class ItemVersionBase : Entity, IItemVersionBase {}
abstract class Item<TOwner, TChild> : ItemBase
    [Association(PairTo = "ItemUntyped", OnOwnerRemove = OnRemoveAction.Cascade, OnTargetRemove = OnRemoveAction.Clear)]
    ItemItemVersionsEntitySet ItemVersionsUntyped {get; private set;}
abstract class ItemVersion<TOwner, TChild> : ItemVersionBase
    IItemBase ItemUntyped { get; set; }
class Line : Item<Line, LineVersion>
    //Some fields
class LineVersion : ItemVersion<Line, LineVersion>
    //Some fields

All entities share this: Guid Id {get; private set;} [Field] on everything Line and LineVersion are HierarchyRoot, with SingleTable and IncludeTypeId

In DB they are represented as only two tables, Line and LineVersion.

There are some other fields in the models. and other classes, but they are not relevant. The generated SQL looks like this, after some beautifying. Ignore the fact that there are a big list of unions, it's irrelevant, normally I wouldn't query ItemVersionsUntyped, I would use ItemVersionsTyped which is a LinqRewriter to get only LineVersion and not every IItemVersionBase. However, to keep the query as simple as possible I avoided the helpers.

SELECT [a].[id], 
       [b].[stations.id]                                            AS [#a.Stations.Id], 
       [b].[stations.typeid]                                        AS [#a.Stations.TypeId], 
       (SELECT Count_big(*) 
        FROM   ((SELECT [c].[id], 
                 FROM   (SELECT [d].[id], 
                         FROM   [dbo].[bodml.lineversion] [d]) [c]) 
                (SELECT [e].[id], 
                 FROM   (SELECT [f].[id], 
                         FROM   [dbo].[bodml.linestationversion] [f]) [e]) 
                (SELECT [g].[id], 
             FROM   (SELECT [h].[id], 
                     FROM   [dbo].[bodml.stationversion] [h]) [g]) 
            (SELECT [i].[id], 
             FROM   (SELECT [j].[id], 
                     FROM   [dbo].[bodms.userversion] [j]) [i]) 
            (SELECT [k].[id], 
             FROM   (SELECT [l].[id], 
                     FROM   [dbo].[bodms.passwordversion] [l]) [k]) 
            (SELECT [m].[id], 
             FROM   (SELECT [n].[id], 
                     FROM   [dbo].[itemsetitemversion(bodms.user-bodms.baserole)] [n]) [m]) 
            (SELECT [o].[id], 
             FROM   (SELECT [p].[id], 
                     FROM   [dbo].[itemsetitemversion(bodml.line-bodml.linestation)] [p]) [o])) [q] 
    WHERE  ( ( [q].[itemuntyped.id] = [q].[id] ) 
             AND ( [q].[itemuntyped.typeid] = [q].[typeid] ) )) AS [c01umn] 
    FROM   (SELECT [r].[id], 
    FROM   [dbo].[bodml.line] [r] 
    GROUP  BY [r].[id], 
              [r].[typeid]) [a] 
   INNER JOIN [dbo].[bodml.line] [b] 
           ON ( ( [a].[id] = [b].[id] ) 
                AND ( [a].[typeid] = [b].[typeid] ) )

As you can see it compares the wrong tables here:

    WHERE  ( ( [q].[itemuntyped.id] = [q].[id] ) 
             AND ( [q].[itemuntyped.typeid] = [q].[typeid] ) )) AS [c01umn]

I think it should be like this instead:

    WHERE  ( ( [q].[itemuntyped.id] = [a].[id] ) 
             AND ( [q].[itemuntyped.typeid] = [a].[typeid] ) )) AS [c01umn]

When executing the original query in sql server management I get this result, which I didn't expect:

D8296E94-FA01-437D-9EBD-77B4F3DB02D5    100 1E60CE0C-7ED4-4626-A3DA-0FBFDB71A9CD    111 0
346ED63A-D8E7-4EA4-A9B5-A505E343371C    100 D9E936B6-1CCD-496F-B42F-9142F2003FC8    111 0

However, when executing my modified sql I get this result, which I expected:

D8296E94-FA01-437D-9EBD-77B4F3DB02D5    100 1E60CE0C-7ED4-4626-A3DA-0FBFDB71A9CD    111 1
346ED63A-D8E7-4EA4-A9B5-A505E343371C    100 D9E936B6-1CCD-496F-B42F-9142F2003FC8    111 1

I tried different queries, and they all seem to share the problem that setting a property to .Key in the grouping works, but using .Key.Anything() won't work.

If I try this query instead (with .Count instead of .Count()) I get an error message instead:

from t in Query.All<Line>()
            group t by t
                into t3
                select new
                    Test = t3.Key,
                    Test2 = t3.Key.ItemVersionsUntyped.Count

(The need to use the Key is simply to limit the amount of SQL queries, prefetch etc. For performance, simply)

I hope you will be able to reproduce this easily, if not, I will try to make a smaller model to reproduce this on :)

One Answer:

Confirmed and fixed. Fix would be available in DataObjects.Net 4.5.7 and 4.6.3
