Hibernate composite key biderectional one-to-many association

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I have 4 entities.
PaperDesign is bidirectionally associated with BoxPaperRela as One-To-Many.

They both have three-column-composite-key and these keys should be used as foreign key betwwen them. BoxPaperRelaId and PaperDesignId are embedded key entities of them (and attached in question)
When I set boxPaperRela in PaperDesign entity and saveOrUpdate the PaperDesignObject Hibernate generates as SQL such below:

select boxpaperre_.box_id, boxpaperre_.box_version, boxpaperre_.page_number, boxpaperre_.paper_id, boxpaperre_.paper_version, boxpaperre_.create_date as create6_7_,
boxpaperre_.paperDesign_page_number as paperDes8_7_, boxpaperre_.paperDesign_paper_id as paperDes9_7_, boxpaperre_.paperDesign_paper_version as paperDe10_7_, boxpaperre_.relation_id as relation7_7_
from test.box_paper_rela boxpaperre_
where boxpaperre_.box_id=? and boxpaperre_.box_version=? and boxpaperre_.page_number=? and boxpaperre_.paper_id=? and boxpaperre_.paper_version=?

Problem is boxpaperre_.paperDesign_paper_id and successive column list. An exception is thrown since these columns can not befound. (org.hibernate.exception.SQLGrammarException: could not retrieve snapshot:)

In some way paperDesign attribute and its columns are used for selection though it is not correct.  How to fix this problem?
