Members are not poppulated?

Hi guys! I'm trying to select record from the database and map it into my class. I'm using JPA and Toplink. First of all, here is my query.

My entity class

As you can see, I'm thinking that userId and all other fields would already be poppulated. But when I supply correct data for the username and password and the Object is retrieved, its members especially the userId is not filled. Why is that? Thanks!

Probably because it assumes that youa re going to fill that in, because your mapping is

@Column(name = "user_id", nullable = false)
private Integer userId;

Where is the @GeneratedValue to tell it to generate the value?
