"No property exists found for type"... When using the QueryDslPredicateExecutor with MongoDB and Spring-Data

I'm trying to use the QueryDslPredicateExecutor with MongoDB and Spring-Data, but it seems to be choking on the "exists()" property.

I'm using -

org.springframework.boot:spring-boot-starter-parent:1.3.5.RELEASE
com.querydsl:querydsl-mongodb:4.1.2
com.querydsl:querydsl-apt:4.1.2
org.mongodb.morphia:morphia:1.1.1

Assert.notNull(base, "Perviously found properties must not be null!");

String propertyName = name.matches(ALL_UPPERCASE) ? name : StringUtils.uncapitalize(name);
TypeInformation<?> propertyType = owningType.getProperty(propertyName);

if (propertyType == null) {

}

this.owningType = owningType;
this.isCollection = propertyType.isCollectionLike();
this.type = propertyType.getActualType();

}


The property (method) is coming from the QueryDslPredicateExecutor class that my Repository extends.

public abstract boolean org.springframework.data.querydsl.QueryDslPredicateExecutor.exists(com.querydsl.core.types.Predicate)


Here is the repository -

public interface TreeRepository extends ExtendedMongoRepository<Tree, String>, QueryDslPredicateExecutor<Tree>{}

Answer

I ended up solving this by having my base repository extend and implement the QueryDslPredicateExecutor, rather than the higher level repository.

// Custom repository interface
@NoRepositoryBean
public interface ExtendedMongoRepository<T, ID extends Serializable> extends MongoRepository<T, ID>, QueryDslPredicateExecutor<T>{

  public Page<T> query(Query query, Pageable pageable);

}


// Custom Repository Implementation
public abstract class ExtendedMongoRepositoryImpl<T, ID extends Serializable> extends QueryDslMongoRepository<T, ID>
        implements ExtendedMongoRepository<T, ID> {

    private Class<T> clazz;
    private MongoOperations mongoOperations;
    @SuppressWarnings("unused")
    private MongoEntityInformation<T, ID> metadata;

    public ExtendedMongoRepositoryImpl(MongoEntityInformation<T, ID> metadata, MongoOperations mongoOperations) {
        super(metadata, mongoOperations);
        this.mongoOperations = mongoOperations;
        this.clazz = metadata.getJavaType();
        this.metadata = metadata;
    }

    @Override
    public Page<T> query(Query query, Pageable pageable) {
        List<T> list =  mongoOperations.find(query.with(pageable), clazz);
        return new PageImpl<T>(list, pageable, list.size());
    }
}  

// Entity Repository Interface
public interface TreeRepository extends ExtendedMongoRepository<Tree, String> {}
