[CAP] CQL Expand Composition / Deep read

In the documentation they always use a star in string literals like this o => o.`*` to select all fields, but when running this it always failed. However, after some tests I found that this format works with brackets o => o.('*')

https://cap.cloud.sap/docs/guides/providing-services/#–-deep-read

entity myEntity: cuid, managed {
    field1          : String;
    comp            : Composition of one myComposition;
}
 
aspect myComposition: cuid, managed {
    myCompField: String;
}
        const result = await SELECT.from(myEntity)
            .columns(e => {
                e('*')
                e.comp(c => c.myCompField) //expand composition, but only select 'myCompField'
            })

Update 14.09.2023: is now fixed (#)

[CAP] CQL Deep Update

entity myEntity: cuid, managed {
    field1          : String;
    comp            : Composition of one myComposition;
}

aspect myComposition: cuid, managed {
    myCompField: String;
}
            const { myEntity } = cds.entities

            await UPDATE(myEntity)
                .where({ 
                    ID: '0732eae8-8858-4917-8865-e4fa2c40xxxx'
                })
                .set({
                    comp : [{ myCompField: 'my string data' }]
                })

[CAP] Invoke custom handlers when querying local entity

const cds = require('@sap/cds');

module.exports = async srv => {

     const { Objects } = srv.entities // entities from myService.cds
   
     srv.on("myAction", async req => {
        const query = SELECT.one.from(Objects).where({ id: req.data.myId })
        const srv = await cds.connect.to('myService')
        const data = await srv.run(query)
        console.log(data) 
        return data
    })

    srv.on("READ", Objects, async req => {
        console.log("Objects called")
        // Select data from db or forward query to external system
        // ...
        // return data
    })

}
