Hibernate : Finding Object

In this section we will discuss about session.find() method.

Hibernate session.find():

find() method is used for finding the object into the database. This method  is deprecated.
The signatures for the various find() methods are -

public List find(String query);
public List find(String query,Object value, Type type);
public List find(String query,Object[] values, Type[] types);

The basic find() method accepts a string .
you pass query string to the method based on some criteria that need to be satisfied in order to return a particular object from the database.
find() method returns List because there might be more than one object.

Example :In this example we are using find() method to list such employee whose empId is greater than 4 .

package net.roseindia.main;

import java.util.*;
import net.roseindia.table.Employee;
import net.roseindia.util.HibernateUtil;
import org.hibernate.SessionFactory;
import org.hibernate.Transaction;
import org.hibernate.classic.Session;

public class MainClass {
public static void main(String[] args) {
SessionFactory sessionFactory = HibernateUtil.getSessionFactory();
Session session = sessionFactory.openSession(); // session is opened
Transaction transaction = session.beginTransaction();
List emp = session.find("FROM Employee WHERE id > 4");
Iterator iterator = emp.iterator();
System.out.println("Employee Name\tSalary\tDate of Join");
while (iterator.hasNext()) {
Employee employee = (Employee);
System.out.print("\t\t" + employee.getSalary());
System.out.print("\t" + employee.getDateOfJoin());

session.close(); // session is closed

Output :

Hibernate: select employee0_.emp_id as emp1_0_, employee0_.date_of_join as date2_0_, as name0_, employee0_.salary as salary0_ from employee employee0_ where employee0_.emp_id>4
Employee Name     Salary     Date of Join
