    problem with new bean I'm creating (EJB2.0)

    Michael Phoenix Newbie

      I'm trying to create a new entity bean for an existing application. When I deploy I get the following error:

      org.jboss.deployment.DeploymentException: Field changeDate in prim-key-class must be of the same type.

      New table sql
      CREATE TABLE `projecthistory` (
       `ProjectId` int(11) NOT NULL default '0',
       `ChangeDate` datetime NOT NULL,
       `UserID` varchar(50) NOT NULL,
       `Status` int(11) NOT NULL default '0',
       PRIMARY KEY (`ProjectId`, `ChangeDate`),
       KEY `projecthistory_ProjectID_FK` (`ProjectId`),
       CONSTRAINT `projecthistory_ProjectID_FK` FOREIGN KEY (`ProjectId`) REFERENCES `projects` (`ID`) ON DELETE CASCADE ON UPDATE CASCADE

      prim-key in ejb-jar.xml

      The key class
      public class ProjectHistoryKey {
       public Integer projectID;
       public Date changeDate;
       public ProjectHistoryKey (Integer projectID, Date changeDate) {
       this.projectID = projectID;
       this.changeDate = changeDate;

      I am using java.util.date in my java code, which works for other beans where the date isn't a primary key? Do I need to use java.sql.date or is there just a problem using dates in primary keys or something else entirely? Some guidance here would be appreciated.
