It seems that he wants to map the Employee to the owner, which is good, but don't map Employee.id to PhonePK.owner but the Employee instance to PhonePK.owner.
What can I do ?
I got exactly the same PropertyAccessException problem using JPA 1 with hibernate 3.2.1 ga implementation (in addition to http://opensource.atlassian.com/projects/hibernate/browse/HHH-4256 for the record).
The sample looks correct according to JPA (2) specification. I'm stucked. I'll check JPA 1 specification.
Did you find any thing on your side ?

I solved the problem.
It comes from the JPA implementation, which isn't JPA 2. Check your configuration.
If you are using Jboss AS 5.1, JPA 2 is not implemented in it.
It can be added to a project if you put directly the library in it and reference it in the classpath.
I didn't wanted to bother with that, so I switched to Jboss AS 6.0 M2 as I have no production plans atm, but I'll probably have to put the JPA2 implementation onto my project later anyway.
