In this section, you will learn HSQLDB connection using Hibernate.
HSQL stands for Hyper Structured Query Language. HSQL is the structured query language of HSQLDB(Hyper Structured Query Language Database) which is a relational database system written in Java. It has a JDBC driver . HSQLDB is recognized for its small size ,flexibility,speed and its ability to execute completely or partly in memory.
For connecting to HSQLDB , you need to download hsqldb-2.2.8.jar file from here.
The hibernate.cfg.xml should have following configuration for using HSQLDB :
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?> <!DOCTYPE hibernate-configuration PUBLIC "-//Hibernate/Hibernate Configuration DTD 3.0//EN" "http://hibernate.sourceforge.net/hibernate-configuration-3.0.dtd"> <hibernate-configuration> <session-factory> <!-- Database connection settings --> <property name="connection.driver_class">org.hsqldb.jdbcDriver</property> <property name="connection.url">jdbc:hsqldb:mem:anky</property> <property name="connection.username">root</property> <property name="connection.password">root</property> <!-- JDBC connection pool (use the built-in) --> <property name="connection.pool_size">2</property> <!-- SQL dialect --> <property name="dialect">org.hibernate.dialect.HSQLDialect</property> <!-- Echo all executed SQL to stdout --> <property name="show_sql">true</property> <!-- Drop and re-create the database schema on startup <property name="hbm2ddl.auto">create</property> <mapping resource="net/roseindia/Worker.hbm.xml"/> </session-factory> </hibernate-configuration>
NOTE :Except the above configuration all the codes are same for using Hibernate to connect to HSQL database.
