HQL Editor currently displays results in a flat JTable, which is in-efficient in displaying embedded result objects.
This UI needs to be revised to include hierarchical display component (such as JTree table and / or JList and / or
JTable). The main aim of this UI improvement is to improve the result display and the navigation.
This old bug may not be relevant anymore. If you can still reproduce it in 8.2 development builds please reopen this issue.
Thanks for your cooperation,
