Hi, I'm new here, maybe this topic shouldn't be here, but I don't know where ask and I need solve this question.

I have a table in SQL Server and I need mapping, but it has a xml column, then I don't know how do that.

My table:

ID (PK, int, not null)
Name (nvarchar(200), not null)
Data (XML, not null)

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<hibernate-mapping xmlns="urn:nhibernate-mapping-2.2" schema="Test.dbo"
namespace="Project.Domain.Test" assembly="Project.Domain.Test">
<class name="TableXXX" table="TableXXX">
<id name="ID" type="System.Int32" column="ID" unsaved-value="0">
<generator class="identity" />
<property name="Name" column="Name" type="System.String"/>
<property name="Data" column="Data" type=??? />

In C# definition of table:
using System;
using System.Xml;

namespace Project.Domain.Test
public class TableXXX
public virtual Int32 ID { get; set; }
public virtual String Name { get; set; }
public virtual ??? Data { get; set; } }

In the future please UseCodeTags rather than bold and color for formatting code and configuration.

You will need to define your own UserType. Below is an example of this for Oracles XmlType column. Perhaps one is out there somewhere for SQL server already otherwise this serves as an example of how to do the same.
