The error is unlikely to be a SQL error, unless there is a bug in whichever dialect you are using. Its more likely an HQL error. Can you post the stacktrace?

For reference, the hibernate.show_sql property will log the SQL hibernate generates.

When SQL gets generated, you can usually see it in the log file output. You can copy and paste the SQL into a database console window or something and execute the SQL and see how well it works.

If you're converting SQL to HQL, remember that HQL is object centric. You won't have primary keys, but your objects should have identifiers or ids.
