In CompositeUserType, public Type getPropertyTypes() is defined using the Hibernate Type
interface. This means you must define a Hibernate Type using Hibernate's internal API
in order to be able to map a Java type for use in property expressions.
What would need to be done to be able to map a Usertype for each property? My use case is
the case of persisting an interval which is defined by two columns of type (Joda)
DateTime, but currently the underlying type is TimestampType, so a Date or Timestamp has
to be used in property queries. Would I need to define types to use for the properties
along the lines of:
public class DateTimeType extends
// Where mapping to timestamp is performed within this type.
Would there be a reasonable modification where instead a CompositeUserType could be
defined as consisting of separate (Enhanced)UserTypes for each of its properties?
