Hibernate: Query Caching

In this part you will learn about Hibernate query caching.

Query Caching :

Second type of cache is called the query cache and it is optional. Using this cache ,Hibernate cache queries and their results in the event the application executes the same query again.
The query cache takes memory and it is useful for queries that run frequently with the same parameters. The main objective of query caching is to maintain caching for results of queries.

For Query caching we use in our code -


It defines that the query is actually cacheable. If we will not define it, then it would not be cached.
We should also do some changes in configuration file to enable the query cache.
Here is the property attribute to add in Hibernate.cfg.xml-

<property name="hibernate.cache.use_query_cache">true</property>

Example :

Hibernate.cfg.xml -

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
<!DOCTYPE hibernate-configuration PUBLIC
"-//Hibernate/Hibernate Configuration DTD 3.0//EN"
