I have a table which looks like this:
t1col1 not null
t1col2 auto generated indentity
and (composite) primary key = t1col1, t1col2
i created a hbm which looks like:
<class name="Table1" table="TABLE1"> <composite-id> <key-property name="col1" column="t1col1" /> <key-property name="col2" column="t1col2" /> </composite-id> <property name="col3" column="t1col3" not-null="true" /> </class>
Problem is t1col2 is auto generated. How should this be specified in hbm?
Thanks in advance

With composite keys your only key generation strategy is "assigned". Neither Hibernate nor the database can know anything about the business logic you require to generate your composite key.
That aside, if your composite key contains an identity field (which will have all the properties of a surrogate key) why are you using a composite key at all?
I agree. Here's the link:
