Help with mapping strange table

Hi,

recently I'm making an application with legacy MySQL database. I'm using Hibernate along with JBoss. Everything works fine, but one table in the DB is "strange"


As you can guess bu running SELECT you'll get something like
5 John name
5 B surname
5 Mr. title
5 32 age

now,
when running session.createQuery(...).list(); I get 4 times 'name' collumn.
Running session.createQuery(...).scroll() I get empty ScrollableResult (not much surprise here)
I'm not even capable of mappging User using either @hibernate.bag, or @hibernate.set (I can't use List or map since I can't add index collumn to the DB), as this gives me errror.

XDoclet code:


Error it gives:
12:15:02,468 ERROR [Configuration]
Could not configure datastore from input stream
java.lang.NullPointerException
at net.sf.hibernate.util.StringHelper.qualify(StringHelper.java:241)

I have doubts, whether it is even possible solve this with Hibernate. I could get the data with JDBC, but I'd like to have my code as clean as possible.

Thank you for any advise.

Martin
