This improvement will track the development of Repository query method projections.

Typically, SD [Geode] Repositories are tied to a single application domain object type. However, query methods, whether by convention or annotated with @Query, can return a custom type containing a subset of the properties from the actual domain object itself (the "projection").

For example, I may have defined a Customer like so...

class Contact {

  Address address;

  Customer customer;

  PhoneNumber phoneNumber;

  String email;


Any one of the composed types (e.g. Customer) can be arbitrarily complex. Currently, the corresponding [CRUD] Repository might look like the following containing a query to find all Contacts in a particular city/state.

interface ContactRepository extends CrudRepository<Customer, Long> {

  List<Contact> findByAddressCityAndAddressState(State state, String city);

Depending on the application view, the user may only want a subset of the data returned from the query to project into the view. In other words, rather than returning the entire Contact, the user may want to only find all Customers by first and last name with phone number in a given city/state.

For example...

interface ContactRepository extends CrudRepository<Customer, Long> {

List<CustomerView> findByAddressCityAndAddressState(State state, String city);

With the corresponding, given `CustomerView`...

class CustomerView {

  PhoneNumber phoneNumber;

  String accountNumber;
  String firstName;
  String lastName;

Repository query projection support effectively allows the user to redefine their query method with the data of interests.
