I have the code:
   public SQLQueriesResult execute(SQLQueries action, ExecutionContext context) throws ActionException {

      Session session = null;
      index_grid = 0;
      Integer count = 0;

      Integer offset = action.getLoadConfig().getOffset();
      Integer limit = offset + action.getLoadConfig().getLimit();
      List<SQLRecord> records = new ArrayList<SQLRecord>();

      try {
         session = sessionFactory.openSession();
         String sql = null;
         if (action.isLiveGrid()) {
            sql = liveGridSQL(action.getSql(), limit, offset);
         } else {
            sql = action.getSql();
         SQLQuery query = session.createSQLQuery(sql);

         List<MetaDataFieldConfigSQL> columns = SQLToolsImpl.getColumnFromSQL(session, sql);
         for (int i = 0; i < columns.size(); i++) {
         Iterator<Object[]> result = query.list().iterator();
            while (result.hasNext()) {
            [b]Object[] type = (Object[]) result.next(); -- this error[/b]            
         for (int i = 0; i < result.size(); i++) {
            SQLRecord sqlRecord = new SQLRecord();
            sqlRecord.addField("INDEX_GRID", ++index_grid);
            for (int j = 0; j < columns.size(); j++) {
                     getFieldValue(columns.get(j).getFieldType(), result.get(j)));
         if (!action.isLiveGrid()) {
            count = records.size();
      } catch (JSQLParserException e) {
      } finally {
      return new SQLQueriesResult(
            new PagingLoadResultBean<SQLRecord>(records, records.size(), action.getLoadConfig().getOffset()),

Why does hibernate return 'String' instead of Object []?

If you call addScalar(alias) only once, you get a List<T> where T is the inferred type of the single column being selected.

If you call addScalar(alias) multiple times, you get a List<Object[]> instead.

You got the ClassCastException because you are in the first situation.

There are many other issues with your approach:

- It looks like you are using a custom-made pagination query building instead of the Hibernate-based one
- It looks like you want a Tuple result which is simpler than your approach or a ResultTransformer
- Don't use e.printStackTrace() because you are going to write to the System.out stream. Use a Logging framework to pass the exception.
- You don't use explicit transactions, and that's almost always a bad idea.

If you liked my answer, you are going to love my High-Performance Java Persistence book and my blog as well.
