Hibernate Column Transformer

I have the following two DB tables:

and the correspondent beans:

One object of nat_values can be related to many objects in area.
The field id in both tables is a number, but the field Area.id_nat_values, which relates an Area to one object of Nat_values is not, it is a coded string which can be obtained by calling the function DECODE(Area.id_nat_values).
I use a column transformer to achieve this, which works fine in a many-to-one mapping that I have for some other objects, but it is nt working in this.
This are my mapping files:

When I try to select the elements from nat_values Hibernate doesn't use the column transformers in the select, so it doesn't work and I can not get the list of areas.
any idea why is this happening?

I agree. Here's the link:
