HQL Select Query Hibernate

HQL Select Query Hibernate

Hibernate framework given very powerful query language Hibernate Query Language (HQL) which is similar to SQL only difference is HQL is object oriented and it can recognize notation of object oriented concept associate, polymorphism and inheritance. HQL uses class name in place of table name to execute query against the database. Please have HQL select query example below to select data from database:

Note: This class is extension of previous tutorial. If you are interested to see full working example with all set up please refer this tutorial Hibernate One To Many Annotation Example
