Hello, and first off thanks for your time to look at this.

For a research project I'm working on, I have a somewhat complex design (which I've been given) to persist to a database via NHibernate.

Here's an example of the class hierarchy:

TransitStrategy, TransportationCompany and TransportationLocation are all abstract classes.

The XML configuration I have is presently:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<hibernate-mapping xmlns="urn:nhibernate-mapping-2.2"
               assembly="Vacationizer"
               namespace="Vacationizer.Domain.Transit">

<class name="TransitStrategy">

    <id name="TransitStrategyId">
        <generator class="guid" />
    </id>

    <property name="Restrictions" />

    <joined-subclass name="Flight" table="Flight_TransitStrategy">

        <key column="TransitStrategyId" />

        <property name="DepartingAirport" />
        <property name="ArrivingAirport" />
        <property name="Airline" />
        <property name="FlightNumber" />
        <property name="FlightArrivalTime" />
        <property name="FlightDepartureTime" />

    </joined-subclass>

    <joined-subclass name="RentalCar" table="RentalCar_TransitStrategy">

        <key column="TransitStrategyId" />

        <property name="RentalCarBranch" />
        <property name="CarMake" />
        <property name="CarModel" />
        <property name="CarYear" />
        <property name="CarColor" />
        <property name="RentalBegins" />
        <property name="RentalEnds" />

    </joined-subclass>

</class>

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<hibernate-mapping xmlns="urn:nhibernate-mapping-2.2"
               assembly="Vacationizer"
               namespace="Vacationizer.Domain.Transit">

<class name="TransportationCompany">

    <id name="TransportationCompanyId">
        <generator class="guid" />
    </id>

    <property name="Name" />
    <property name="Reviews" />
    <property name="Website" />
    <property name="Photo" />

    <joined-subclass name="Airline" table="Airline_TransportationCompany">

        <key column="TransportationLocationId" />

    </joined-subclass>

    <joined-subclass name="RentalCarAgency" table="RentalCarAgency_TransportationCompany">

        <key column="TransportationLocationId" />

    </joined-subclass>

</class>

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<hibernate-mapping xmlns="urn:nhibernate-mapping-2.2"
               assembly="Vacationizer"
               namespace="Vacationizer.Domain.Transit">

<class name="TransportationLocation">

    <id name="TransportationLocationId">
        <generator class="guid" />
    </id>

    <property name="Name" />
    <property name="Image" />
    <property name="Geolocation" />
    <property name="Reviews" />
    <!-- <property name="HoursOpen" />-->
    <property name="PhoneNumber" />
    <property name="FaxNumber" />

    <joined-subclass name="Airport" table="Airport_TransportationLocation">

        <key column="TransportationLocationId" />

        <property name="AirportCode" />
        <property name="Website" />

    </joined-subclass>

    <joined-subclass name="RentalCarBranch" table="RentalCarBranch_TransportationLocation">

        <key column="TransitStrategyId" />

        <property name="Agency" />

    </joined-subclass>

</class>

However, whenever I try to use this schema I get this error/stack trace:

------ Test started: Assembly: Vacationizer.Tests.dll ------

0 passed, 1 failed, 0 skipped, took 8.38 seconds (Ad hoc).

Any ideas on how I can implement this differently? Thanks very much!
