Adding joins with entity mapping.

  • We can also use addEntity() and addJoin() methods to fetch the data from associated table using tables join. The above query can be re-written as following;
A quick sample. Check out the JAVA class and SQL file
// {...}
List<Object[]> usersJoin = session
"select u.*, t.* from user u left outer join team t on u.team_id=t.team_id where u.user_id=?")
.addEntity("u", User.class).addJoin("t", "u.team").setParameter(1, 1).list();
usersJoin.stream().forEach(object -> { // The user's object list would contain a User instance and a
// "joined"
// team instance.
User userJoin = (User) object[0];
logger.info("User - " + userJoin.getName());
logger.info("User Domain - " + userJoin.getDomain().getDomainName());
Team teamJoin = (Team) object[1];
logger.info("Info: User Team Name " + teamJoin.getTeamName());
  • Notice the second query, which fetches the Domain details. This is the eager Loading of the requested object
  • [aliasname].* is used to return all properties of an entity. When we use addEntity() and addJoin() with join queries like above it returns both the objects, as shown above.
