I'm new to hibernate.In my code there is a pojo object like
and the corresponding mapping file is
isactive column takes integer datatype in the table department .So is in my hbm file.That means it takes value 0 or 1 to represent boolean output.In my pojo I am putting the isActive property as boolean.
Now I am having problem while writing criteria query.
If I convert 'isActive' to boolean it is showing class cast exception.
In a nutshell what should I do if the datatype of any property in the pojo class is different from the datatype of the same property in the hbm file (but the property in the hbm file has same datatype with column in the database table).
Is there any solution if I want to solve this problem keeping my pojo class and the database table intact?
You could create your own Hibernate type to map 0|1 to false|true and then use this type in your hbm mapping.
