There’s a column in our database which needs to be of type
YEAR. What is the corresponding Hibernate mapping for the entity? Tried searching all over, but unable to find the details. I am not sure if I need to use anything from
@Temporal or any other specific type. We are using Hibernate ORM v4.1.7.
You can write a Hibernate UserType that takes an Integer to a MySQL YEAR column.
Check for example Joda Hibernate UserTypes which are a good starting point for your custom Hiberante type.
