How To Use

Java Source

    @TypeDef(name = "hstore", typeClass = com.github.thealchemist.pg_hibernate.HstoreType.class),
    @TypeDef(name = "inet", typeClass = com.github.thealchemist.pg_hibernate.InetAddressType.class)
public class LoggedAction implements Serializable {
  @Type(type = "hstore")
  @Column(name="row_data", columnDefinition="hstore")
  private Map<String, String> rowData;

  @Column(name="client_addr", columnDefinition="inet")
  private InetAddress clientAddr;
