  • Hibernate JDBC properties
  • Property Name Purpose

    hibernate.connection.url JDBC URL
    hibernate.connection.username database user
    hibernate.connection.password database user password
    hibernate.connection.pool_size maximum number of pooled connection
  • Hibernate DataSource properties
  • Property Name Purpose
    hibernate.connection.driver_class JDBC driver class
    hibernate.connection.url JDBC URL
    hibernate.connection.username database user
    hibernate.connection.password database user password
    hibernate.connection.pool_size maximum number of pooled connection
  • Hibernate Configuration properties
  • Property Name Purpose
    hibernate.dialect The classname of Hibernate org.hibernate.dialect.Dialect which allows Hibernate to genarate SQL optimized for a particular relational databases. eg. full.classname.of.Dialect
    hibernate.show_sql Write all SQL statements to console. This is an alternative to setting the log category org.hibernate.SQL to debug. eg. treu | false
    hibernate.format_sql preety print the SQL in the log and console eg. true | false
    hibernate.default_schema Qualify unqualified table names with the given schema/ tablespace in generated SQL eg. SCHEMA_NAME
    hibernate.default_catalog Qualifies unqualified table names with the given catalog in generated SQL eg. CATALOG_NAME
    hibernate.session_factory_name The org.hibernate.SessionFactory will be automatically bound to this name in JNDI after it has been created. eg. jndi/composite/name
    hibernate.max_fetch_depth Sets a maximum "depth" for the outer join fetch tree for single-ended associations (one-to-one, many-to-many). A o disables default outer join fetching. eg. recommended values between 0 and 3
    hibernate.default_batch_size Sets a default size for Hibernate batch fetching of associations. eg. recommended values 4,8,16
  • Hibernate JDBC and Connection properties
  • Property Name Purpose
    hibernate.jdbc.batch_size A non-zero value determines the JDBC fetch size (calls Statement.setFetchSize()).
    hibernate.jdbc.batch_size A non-zero value determines the JDBC2 batch updates by Hibernate. eg. recommended values between 5 and 30
    hibernate.jdbc.batch_versioned_data Set this property to true if your JDBC driver returns correct row counts from executeBatch(). It is usually safe to turn this option on. Hibernate will then use batched DML for automatically versioned data. Default to false. eg. true | false
  • Hibernate Cache properties
  • Property Name Purpose
    hibernate.cache.provider_class The classname of a custom CacheProvider. eg. classname.of.CacheProvider
    hibernate.cache.use_minimal_puts Optimizes second-level cache operation to minimize writes, at the cost of more frequent reads. This setting is most useful for clustered caches and, in Hibernate3, is enabled by default for clustered cache implementationseg. true | false
    hibernate.cache.use_query_cache Enables the query cache. individual queries still have to be set cachable. eg. true | false
    hibernate.cache.use_second_level_cache Can be used to completely disable the second level cache. which is enabled by default for classes which specify a <cache> mapping. eg. true | false
    hibernate.cache.query_cache_factory The classname of a custom QueryCache interface, defaults to the built-in StandardQueryCache. eg. classname.of.QueryCache.
    hibernate.cache.region_prefix A prefix to use for second-level cache region names. eg.prefix
    hibernate.cache.use_structured_entries Forces Hibernate to store data in th structured form which is more human friendly formateg. true | false
  • Hibernate Transaction properties
  • Property Name Purpose
    hibernate.transaction.factory_class The classname of a transactionFactory to use with Hibernate Transaction API (defaults to JDBCTransactionFactory). eg. classname.of.TransactionFactory
    jta.UserTransaction A JNDI name used by JTATransactionFactory to obtain the JTA UserTransaction from the application server.eg. jndi/composite/name
    hibernate.transaction. manager_lookup_class The classname of a TransactionManagerLookup. It is required when JVM-level caching is enabled or when using hilo generator in a JTA environment.eg. classname.of.TransactionManagerLookup
    hibernate.transaction. flush_before_completion If enabled, the session will be automatically flushed during the before completion phase of the transaction. Built-in and automatic session context management is preffered. eg. true | false
    hibernate.transaction.auto_close_session If enabled, the session will be automatically closed during the after completion phase of the transaction. Built-in and automatic session context management is preffered. eg. classname.of.QueryCache.
    hibernate.cache.region_prefix A prefix to use for second-level cache region names. eg.prefix
    hibernate.cache.use_structured_entries Forces Hibernate to store data in th structured form which is more human friendly formateg. true | false
  • Miscelleneous properties
  • Property Name Purpose
    hibernate_current_ session_context_class Supply a custom strategy for the scoping of the "current" Sessioneg. jta|thread|managed|custom.Class
    hibernate.query.factor_class Chooses the HQl parser implementation eg. org.hibernate.hql.ast.ASTQueryTranslatorFactory. or org.hibernate.hql.ClassicQueryTranslatorFactory.
    hibernate.query.substitutions Is used to map from tokens in Hibernate queries to SQL tokens (tokens might be function or literal names)eg. hqlLiteral=SQL_LITERAL, hqlFunction=SQLFUNC
    hibernate.hbm2ddl.auto Automatically validates or exports schema DDL to the Database when the SessionFactory is created. With create-drop, the database schema will be dropped when the SessionFactory is closed explicitly.eg. validate | update | create | create-drop
    hibernate.cglib. use_reflection_optimizer Enables the use of CGLIB instead of runtime reflection( System-level property). Reflection can sometimes be useful when troubleshooting. Hibernate always reuires CGLIB even if you turn off the optimizer. You cannot set this property in hibernate.cfg.xml. eg. true | false
