What would be a good logic to create hashCode for multiple/complex datatypes.

Will the method java.lang.System.identityhashCode(Object o), be used in this case..

What are the pluses and minuses of this.
And what would be a better alternative..

I have the put in a sample source for better understanding..

Thanks folks,

I appreciate your valuable inputs..





eg:
------------------------------------------------
public class xyz{

BigDecimal a;
Long b;
Date c;
boolean d;
 public xyz( BigDecimal a, Long b, Date c, boolean d)
 {
   // assign to the members..
 }

 public int hashCode()
 {
    // any help to fill-in here would be appreciated..
 }

}
