      Imagine having a class table inheritance for Employee and Person:

      class Person {} => is mapped to table "person"
      class Employee extends Person {} is mapped to table "person_employee"

      When selecting "SELECT e FROM Employee" the SqlWalker will not generate a WHERE condition for a correct discriminator column value (e.g. "employee"). The ORM seems to trust on the generated INNER JOIN ( =

      Of course the table person_employee should only contain rows for Employee ojects. But if you have a discriminator value "person" for a row matching an Employee row, the repository will return a Person object although we selected from Employee.

      A simple fix is to add the correct DQL expression:
      SELECT e FROM Employee WHERE e INSTANCE OF Employee
