EclipseLink: How to get the SQL translated with the arguments for a Query?

The documentation at the EclipseLink Wiki is not very helpful:http://wiki.eclipse.org/EclipseLink/FAQ/JPA#How_to_get_the_SQL_for_a_Query.3F

It says: “To get the SQL translated with the arguments you need a DatabaseRecord with the parameter values.“.

// BEGIN Snippet from the Wiki
Session session = em.unwrap(JpaEntityManager).getActiveSession();
DatabaseQuery databaseQuery =
((EJBQueryImpl)query).getDatabaseQuery();
String sqlString = databaseQuery
.getTranslatedSQLString(session,
recordWithValues);
// END Snippet from the Wiki

But where to get the recordWithValues variable? Actually the solution is hard to find, but simple: databaseQuery.getTranslationRow()

// This does the trick...
String sqlString = databaseQuery
.getTranslatedSQLString(session,
databaseQuery.getTranslationRow());
// ... to replace the '?'
