Hi,

In hibernate 3.0 is there a way to map a varchar (in database) to a java.util.Date for your DTO?

The simplest solution I know is to add the following to your hbm.xml class and DTO:

(1) private field with private getter/setter that hibernate will populate
- the setter will convert the format for (2)
(2) public field with public getter/setter that users will use

Any other ideas?

Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure what's your requirement but I find UserType a heavy weight solution which should be used when hibernate doesn't support the data type natively.

In your case, with my limited understanding of the problem, I would set the field as varchar and would define as "access" = "field". In this way you can have yout getValue() method that would return date field.
