I am using JPA in my project.
I came to a query in which I need to make join operation on five tables. So I created a native query which returns five fields.
Now I want to convert the result object to java POJO class which contains the same five Strings.
Is there any way in JPA to directly cast that result to POJO object list ??
I came to the following solution ..
name = "nativeSQL",
query = "SELECT * FROM Actors",
resultClass = db.Actor.class),
name = "nativeSQL2",
query = "SELECT COUNT(*) FROM Actors",
resultClass = XXXXX) // <--------------- problem
Now here in resultClass, do we need to provide a class which is actual JPA entity ? OR We can convert it to any JAVA POJO class which contains the same column names ?
