My problem is.... I have a composite key out of which one is a sequence generator.How to declare this in my mapping file. let me give an example...

In a normal table with one primary key Id declaration in the mapping file will suffice as a primary key declaration. And a generator tag will make it more easier for auto generation of values.

Now if the table has a composite-key. One of the key attribute must be from a sequence generator. How to describe this in a mapping file..

Please do inform me about this...

thanks in advance,
Venkat Dasari

Why are you using a sequence as part of a composite-id? Your sequence will be generating unique values so why not just use that?
