return map for criteria

you can use import org.hibernate.criterion.CriteriaSpecification with withCriteria() to transform the result in a Collection object, with properties chosen by you only:

import org.hibernate.criterion.CriteriaSpecification

def criteria = User.withCriteria(){
    resultTransformer CriteriaSpecification.ALIAS_TO_ENTITY_MAP
    createAlias 'personalData', 'p'
    eq 'id',
    // ...and so on, then
    projections {
        property 'id', 'myId' // a property called 'myId', from User
        property '', 'userName' // from personalData, a property mapped by a fk in User
        property 'p.age', 'age'
