Hibernate Named Query Example

Hibernate » on Jul 14, 2011 { 4 Comments } By Sivateja

Let us see an example on Hibernate Named Queries,

files required…

  • class)
  • Product.hbm.xml
  • hibernate.cfg.xml
  • (For writing our business logic)

package str;

public class Product{

	private int productId;
	private String proName;
	private double price;

	public void setProductId(int productId)
	    this.productId = productId;
	public int getProductId()
	    return productId;

	public void setProName(String proName)
	    this.proName = proName;
	public String getProName()
	    return proName;

	public void setPrice(double price)
	    this.price = price;
	public double getPrice()
	    return price;


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE hibernate-mapping PUBLIC
"-//Hibernate/Hibernate Mapping DTD 3.0//EN"

<class name="str.Product" table="products">

<id name="productId" column="pid"  />
<property name="proName" column="pname" length="10"/>
<property name="price"/>


<query name="Myquery">
<![CDATA[from Product p where p.price>:java4s ]]>



<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<!DOCTYPE hibernate-configuration PUBLIC
"-//Hibernate/Hibernate Configuration DTD 3.0//EN"

<property name="connection.driver_class">oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver
<property name="connection.url"></property>
<property name="connection.username">system</property>
<property name="connection.password">admin</property>

<property name="dialect">org.hibernate.dialect.OracleDialect</property>
<property name="show_sql">true</property>
<property name="">update</property>

<mapping resource="Product.hbm.xml"></mapping>

package str;

import java.util.Iterator;
import java.util.List;

import org.hibernate.Query;
import org.hibernate.Session;
import org.hibernate.SessionFactory;
import org.hibernate.cfg.Configuration;

public class ForOurLogic { 

	public static void main(String[] args)

		Configuration cfg = new Configuration();

		SessionFactory factory = cfg.buildSessionFactory();
		Session session = factory.openSession();

		Query qry=session.getNamedQuery("Myquery");
		qry.setParameter("java4s", new Double(15000));

		List l=qry.list();
		System.out.println("List total size..._"+l.size());
		Iterator it=l.iterator();

			Product p=(Product);
			System.out.println(p.getProductId()+"   "+p.getProName()+"  "+p.getPrice());




  • See Product.hbm.xml file, line numbers 15, 16, 17, we have given one HQL query in the <query /> element
  • In file, line number 23 will get that query from mapping xml into Query object, in line 24 we just passed the value to that label normally

But if you would like to use Named Query with Native SQL, then we need to change our mapping file like…



<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE hibernate-mapping PUBLIC
"-//Hibernate/Hibernate Mapping DTD 3.0//EN"

<class name="str.Product" table="products">

<id name="productId" column="pid"  />
<property name="proName" column="pname" length="10"/>
<property name="price"/>


<sql-query name="Myquery">
  select * from PRODUCTS


Note: In this case we need to use one new element <sql-query /> unlike <query /> element which we used to write HQL query

    How to validate to fields in a table from the given values in hibernate for JavaFX using eclipse
    For ex:
