Usertype with multiple columns within an embedded component
posted 2 years ago
I'm in a situation where I needed to create an UserType that have 2 columns. So far so good. Every entity needs to map this type with a @Columns specifying column names.
But one of my entities have an embedded component which, in turn, have 2 fields of this type.
The intuitive solution is to map the entity with @AttributeOverrides with the columns specifications on the component field. This solution doesn't work for me. I've searched for this problem and haven't found nobody with this kind of trouble. I'm using hibernate 3.6.9.
Another solution I know that would resolve this is to retire the UserType kind of mapping and pass to use @Embbedable. But this solution will require more changes.
Does someone know a solution to this?
