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 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.

Persisting Array

Working with Array is similar to that with List, but in List, it is not compulsory to add @IndexColumn. However, Array requires an indexed column to maintain the column order.

Getting ready

Create the required class using the following code to persist Array:

Source file:

@Table(name = "employee")
public class Employee {

  @Column (name = "id")
  private long id;

  @Column (name = "name")
  private String name;

  @CollectionTable(name = "email")
  private String[] emails;

  public long getId() {
    return id;

  public void setId(long id) { = id;

  public String getName() {
    return name;

  public void setName(String name) { = name;

  public String[] getEmails() {
    return emails;

  public void setEmails(String[] emails) {
    this.emails = emails;

  public String toString() {
    return "Employee" ...
