Force index usage in mySql


Non-standard SQL of that nature is specific to one RDBMS (i.e MySQL), and not supported. All SQL is in the RDBMS plugin if wanting to add (some level of) support for it. If doing so, try to make support general enough something like "optional SQL to put after a FROM table" ("FORCE INDEX" is deprecated after MySQL v8)



I am using datanucleus with mySql and I am looking for a way to force an index usage in a query (JDOQL). So the generated SQL should look like "select x from T FORCE INDEX (z) where ...". I have inspected the documentation and I do not think this is something that could be done right of the box. Am I right ? If yes, I would appreciate some hints on the way to achieve this. Using plugin ?

Thank you for your help,
