I have a view which comprises of joining 4 table and it does not have a primary keys, this view is just used for display purpose. I want it to be managed by hibernate, I did some search and found that it is not able to have a view mapped to a pojo with out a primary key, one solution is to create a composite key with all the columns in the view and then use @Embeddable annotation, I did this and it worked fine for me. But is there a way to tell hibernate that this POJO is a select only kind of POJO and I will never do a insert/update so no need of a primary key. Or are there any other options that I can try. thanks
