Can define the database name beside the table when using query DSL?

Can we define database beside entity name instead of switch to specific schema each time fetch data in multi-tenant applications?

For instance:-

QEntity qEntity = QEntity.entity;
JPAQueryFactory queryFactory = new JPAQueryFactory(em);

Method 1

A different database would typically be provided through a different EntityManager when creating the QueryFactory. For implementing multi-tenancy through different schema’s, you can look at the alternatives described at .

There is no way to query specific database or schema in JPQL itself, nor HQL – or query any table that is not mapped as an entity for that matter – so using Querydsl to generate the JPQL or HQL for you has the same limitation.
