I will try to answer your questions the best I can :
1) UserTypes are an offical Hibernate component thats lets you add mappings
that Hibernate can use for non standard datatype, i.e. Geometry. Seems as
Norman wrote this specific UserType I don't think it will be supported by
the Hibernate Team, but the should be able to provide general help on user
2) Seems as JBoss uses an embedded version of Tomcat, it should be
possible. I don't really know how to deploy stuff in Tomcat, but you should
just put the user type in your .war or where the hibernate jars are.
