  1. Lazy associations

    Hibernate uses lazy select fetching by default for collections and lazy proxy fetching for single-valued associations. This default behavior makes sense for almost all associations in almost all applications.

    Hibernate will use the batch fetch optimization for lazy fetching if hibernate.default_batch_fetch_size parameter is set. This optimization may also be enabled at a more granular level.

    Lazy fetching introduces a problem that should be taken care of. Remember that ...
  2. Hibernate logging

    Hibernate logs various events using Apache commons-logging. Hibernate logs are very interesting to read if you want to do some troubleshooting or performance improvement. Hibernate uses commons-logging service for logging. It actually sends the log to either Log4j or to JDK1.4 logging.

    If you want hibernate to log using Log4j, then put log4j.jar into class path along with Since log4j has almost become a standard these days, I would advice using that.

  3. Defining fetch strategy

    <set name="permissions" 
        <key column="userId"/>
        <one-to-many class="Permission"/>
    <many-to-one name="mother" class="Cat" fetch="join"/>
