Thanks Michal.
   Larry and I worked through this yesterday. It's on the wiki now.
    In short, it was a namespace issue. It was namespace aware but I didn't include the namespace. I thought it would default to the name space of the resultMap that required it.

Shouldn't groupBy="name" be rather in the quarterMap? It is there, where the grouping happens.

Following the threads on the mailing list archive I tried to use the n+1 fix but I get the following from my query.
Below is the exception and the related items that I have defined.
It's interesting to note that if I don't try to execute getQuartersForServiceYear then it works fine (doesn't complain about missing maps etc).

Caused by: com.ibatis.sqlmap.client.SqlMapException: There is no result map named monthMap in this SqlMap.
