Hibernate Configuration Properties

By: Felix in Hibernate Tutorials on 2010-12-29  

Hibernate configuration properties are used to configure the behavior of the Hibernate framework. These properties are specified in a configuration file, typically named hibernate.cfg.xml, and can also be set programmatically.

Some commonly used Hibernate configuration properties are:

  1. hibernate.dialect: specifies the SQL dialect of the database that Hibernate will be used with. The dialect is used to generate the appropriate SQL statements for the target database.

  2. hibernate.connection.driver_class: specifies the JDBC driver class that will be used to connect to the database.

  3. hibernate.connection.url: specifies the URL of the database that Hibernate will be used with.

  4. hibernate.connection.username: specifies the username used to authenticate to the database.

  5. hibernate.connection.password: specifies the password used to authenticate to the database.

  6. hibernate.show_sql: if set to true, Hibernate will print SQL statements to the console. This is useful for debugging.

  7. hibernate.format_sql: if set to true, Hibernate will format the SQL statements it prints to the console.

  8. specifies the schema generation strategy. For example, create will create the schema from scratch, update will update the schema to match the Hibernate configuration, and validate will validate the schema against the Hibernate configuration.

  9. hibernate.current_session_context_class: specifies the context in which Hibernate will manage sessions. The default value is thread, which means that each thread will have its own session. Other options include jta and managed.

These are just a few examples of the many Hibernate configuration properties that are available.
