I have a hbm mapped bean with a composite key as id and the composite key is constructed using another class, a foriegn key and a column of String datatype. The mapped java class gets the id as the composite key by extending another class.

Now i want to create Criteria object based on the composite key. how can it be done?
Urgent suggestions required please..

my hbm file:

Im getting error here.. it tells that there is no such property in the EntityAlternateId class.. SO please suggest what shud be done..
