I would go look this up for you normally but I can't find the documentation on hibernate right now. 

I think HQL might have a mod operator and I think this is what you actually want to use.  I can't verify it it really exists though.

The mod operator returns the remainder so  5 mod 2 = 1 and 3 mod 2 = 1
So you would look for anything (s.age mod 10)=:age  to find any ages that end in a certain number.

Most databases that I know of have some form of the mod operator for instance sql server

and oracle 

If it does exist then you would be able to do something like this
SELECT s FROM Student s WHERE mod(s.age,10)=:age 	

I suspect that this would be faster than a string comparison and conversion  however, I am not sure either.

Actually I think i found some documentation half way down this page
anonymous wrote : Any function or operator defined by EJB-QL 3.0: substring(), trim(), lower(), upper(), length(), locate(), abs(), sqrt(), bit_length(), mod()

There is always more than one way to do things but hopefully this helps you.
