Overview of this book

This book will provide a useful hands-on guide to Hibernate to accomplish the development of a real-time Hibernate application. We will start with the basics of Hibernate, which include setting up Hibernate – the pre-requisites and multiple ways of configuring Hibernate using Java. We will then dive deep into the fundamentals of Hibernate such as SessionFactory, session, criteria, working with objects and criteria. This will help a developer have a better understanding of how Hibernate works and what needs to be done to run a Hibernate application. Moving on, we will learn how to work with annotations, associations and collections.

Updating an object

Here, we look at how to get a record from the database and update the same record to the database. The main goal is to get Employee#2 and update the first name, aarush, to aarush_updated.

How to do it…

Here, we are trying to update an employee object having id equals 2.

The SQL query executed to achieve the same result is as follows:

UPDATE employee SET firstName='aarush_updated' WHERE id=2;

Now, let's take a look at how to do the same using hibernate.


Enter the following code to update an object of the employee type, where id is 2:

SessionFactory sessionFactory = HibernateUtil.getSessionFactory();
Session session = sessionFactory.openSession();

/* Line 3 */ Employee employee = (Employee) session.get(Employee.class, new Long(2));

System.out.println("\nOld Employee...");

/* Line 9 */ employee.setFirstName("aarush_updated");
/* Line 10 */ session.update(employee);
