I went back and looked into UPDATE queries.. there are actually some basic
tests. See org.hibernate.test.query.parser.hql.dml.BasicUpdateTests.

Gunnar, to answer your "what should I work on?" question...
there are lots
of things still not supported and/or tested. At a high level...
* UPDATE queries - are pretty much set in the grammar and SQM, but I do
not remember writing any tests for those
* INSERT queries - I have not worked on implementing at all
* JPA Criteria conversion to SQM - should be very straightforward, just
As for more atomic pieces...
* Subqueries are initially implemented, but need some testing. Specific
scenarios needing testing: uncorrelated subqueries, correlated subqueries,
correlated subqueries with "join hoisting"
* You mentioned the "collection function" support I just added. But we
need to test these. I committed that stuff late last night and did not
want to hold off waiting to write tests the next day. So these still need
testing. Including validation against "strict JPQL compliance" if using
one of the HQL specific ones.
* Re-writing the "domain model" abstraction as discussed above and as we
discussed on IRC. First coming up with a design acceptable to the
"consumers" and then re-writing.
* Spatial extensions. The main thing I am getting from the initial
discussions with Karel is that the only real structure we (maybe) need to
support here is literals.
* Testing! I currently have 39 tests. 39. That's barely a beginning. I
expect a lot of tasks to come out of writing tests. I think going through
the current HQL tests and finding the things we want to support and porting
tests is going to have to happen in some form at some point in time.
 And I'd like to consider supporting the INSERT-tuple syntax in
addition to the INSERT-SELECT syntax we already support.
