I had a similar case with posgis-postgressql and what I have used as
datatype was the Object class directly.

Also you can do something like this, using types "OTHER" and "BLOB" for
db-entity and obj-entity respectively:

<db-entity name="table1">

<db-attribute name="field1" type="INTEGER" length="4"/>

<db-attribute name="field2" type="VARCHAR" length="254"/>

<db-attribute name="fieldGEOMETRY" type="OTHER" length="1"/>



<obj-entity name="table1" className=""

<obj-attribute name="field1" type="java.lang.Integer"

<obj-attribute name="field2" type="java.lang.String"

<obj-attribute name="geometry" type="java.lang.Blob"

It works to me, I hope it can be useful to you too with Mysql extention.

By the way, other problematic situation was the using of the special GIS
functions, in my case it was solved by using wrapper stored procedures in
order to call those functions, see next a sample of mapping:

<procedure name="ProcedureName">

<procedure-parameter name="PARAM1" type="VARCHAR" direction="in"/>

<procedure-parameter name="PARAM2" type="INTEGER" direction="in"/>

<procedure-parameter name="PARAM3" type="DECIMAL" length="22"

<procedure-parameter name="PARAM4" type="DECIMAL" length="22"


and It can be called using the next java code:

ProcedureQuery query = new ProcedureQuery("ProcedureName", SPResult.class);

// Set "IN" parameter values

query.addParameter("PARAM1", rc);

// run query as a normal select query

List objects = this.getDataContext().performQuery(query);

// process results

Iterator it = objects.iterator();

Object obj[] = new Object[4];

while (it.hasNext()) {

SPResult res = (SPResult);

obj[0] = res.getParam2();

obj[1] = res.getParam3();

obj[2] = res.getParam4();
