getting distinct row count in hibernate criteria

Projections.rowCount could return a wrong result when joining is used in the criteria. I used “setResultTransformer(Criteria.DISTINCT_ROOT_ENTITY)” in the criteria to get the distinct items but it  doesn’t work with Projections.rowCount.



This won’t work, it still contain duplicates:

	public Criteria countDefaultCriteria(){
		return getIncidentsDefaultCriteria().setProjection(Projections.rowCount());

This give the correct row count:

	public Criteria countDefaultCriteria(){
		return getIncidentsDefaultCriteria().setProjection(Projections.countDistinct("objID"));
