QueryDSL entity generation for Play 2.x. Implemented as sbt plugin.


Add following to your projects project/plugins.sbt

addSbtPlugin("" % "play-querydsl" % "0.1.2")

In Play >= 2.3 you will be able to benefit from AutoPlugin mecanism from SBT, this way you only need to add to your project the enablePlugins(QueryDSLPlugin) magic.

In addition you'll need to add settings to your project. On Play 2.2 this is done by modifying build.sbt and adding settings for the QueryDSLPlugin as well as adding its dependency scope.

playJavaSettings ++ QueryDSLPlugin.queryDSLSettings

val current =".")).configs(QueryDSLPlugin.QueryDSL)

On Play 2.1 and Play 2.0 you should do following changes to project/Build.scala.

val main = play.Project(appName, appVersion, appDependencies,
                        settings = playJavaSettings ++ QueryDSLPlugin.queryDSLSettings)
                        // your settings

This adds QueryDSL support for JPA entities in your PlayFramework! project. Please note that EBeans should no longer be used or it will lead to compilation errors (and it does not make sense anyway).


By default, the plugin scans for changes for classes in the models package (according to the default directory layout of PlayFramework!). If you want to customize this to allow scanning in another package, you will have to set the plugin property QueryDSLPlugin.queryDSLPackage to the correct value in your project settings

//From Play 2.3 and onward (thanks to autoImport feature)
queryDSLPackage := "com/codetroopers/app/models"
//OR Up to play 2.2
QueryDSLPlugin.queryDSLPackage := "com/codetroopers/app/models"


  • 0.1.2 [2015-03-28]

    Fixes #1 and #2 by respecting queryDSLPackage settings

    Added a sample project to show usage

  • 0.1.1 [2014-03-17]

    Added caching to speed up development (no annotation scanning when entities are not touched)

    Generation of sources is done in a correct directory to allow proper use in IDE (packages were incorrect)

  • 0.1.0 [2014-03-12]

    Initial release


This plugin is based on sbt-scalabuff plugin and QueryDSL ant configuration recommendation.

As it is a first sbt plugin, there is a lot of thing to improve:

  • generate QueryDSL entities only on source change (done in 0.1.1)
  • probably better handling of Config in the plugin
  • add tests
  • a lot more !
