A composite key is a primary key composed of multiple columns.
When you are creating a composite key, your persistent class must override the equals() and hashCode() method. This is required for for Hibernate caching to work correctly. It must also implement the Serializable interface.
Best way to do this is to create a class with all your composite key fields, mark it as @Embeddable and then annotate a field of that class type with @Id in your entity class.
