did you try it before assuming it wont work ?
your jdbc driver should do the job for you in this case.
I did not assume it won't work. I would try it if I could. We are in the early stages of a new project. The database is being modoled, and I am learing Hibernate.
After I used Hibernate tools (defualt configurations) to generate the Beans and the mapping files, I noticed that the 'numeric' type was substitued by 'boolean'. I couldn't find any relevent information in the reference manual. So, I thought to join the forum and maybe I find someone who can explain what has happened behind the scene.
