Just like JBoss maps instances of String and Boolean to database types in a proper way, I would like JBoss to map my own Xyz type to, say, a database String.
String and Boolean are immutable classes and so is my Xyz class, so what I do not know is how to make JBoss capable of mapping back and forth between the database String and an instance of class Xyz. How can I do that?
Any help would be highly appreciated.
I was thinking about adding a type mapping in the following way
But I can't find anything in neither JBossCMP or or the JBossBook which states this is the way to go about it. Does anyone know if this works? Is there a better way?
