Looking for an HQL Query to parse Calendar Date

Hi - I need a hibernate HQL query which can parse a calendar date in a database field and extract (a) the calendar year from the date( or timestamp) and also (b) the calendar month from the date( or timestamp). The purpose is to retrieve a set of entries by year or by month

Thanks

check this link
http://docs.jboss.org/hibernate/core/3.3/reference/en/html/queryhql.html#queryhql-expressions

these functions are only supported if the underlying database is supporting the same, which is one of the cool things about HQL. If Hibernate doesn't understand a particular syntax, say a call to sysdate() or your adddate function that is in SQL, then it just passes the text to the database. Meaning if the database suports those functions it will work. So it means that your HQL query doesn't have to always have just HQL, but some SQL can work
