  • Hibernate
    • So the way we get around joins is to explicitly differentiate the primary key columns. So where I had ‘id_index’ as a common element which I would change in the creation of the view, in hibernate we have to have the differences to begin with (or we change the attribute column?) regardless, the column names appear to have to be different in the table…
    • Here’s a good example of one-table-per-subclass that worked for me.
    • And here’s my version. First, the cfg.xml:
              <property name="connection.url">jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/jh</property>
              <property name="connection.driver_class">com.mysql.jdbc.Driver</property>
              <property name="connection.username">root</property>
              <property name="connection.password">edge</property>
              <property name="dialect">org.hibernate.dialect.MySQL5Dialect</property>
              <property name="hibernate.show_sql">true</property>
              <!-- Drop and re-create the database schema on startup -->
              <property name="">create-drop</property>
              <mapping class="com.philfeldman.mappings.Employee"/>
              <mapping class="com.philfeldman.mappings.Person"/>
    • Next, the base Person Class:
      package com.viztronix.mappings;
      import javax.persistence.Column;
      import javax.persistence.Entity;
      import javax.persistence.GeneratedValue;
      import javax.persistence.Id;
      import javax.persistence.Inheritance;
      import javax.persistence.InheritanceType;
      import javax.persistence.Table;
      import java.util.UUID;
      @Table(name = "person")
      public class Person {
          @Column(name = "person_ID")
          private Long personId;
          @Column(name = "first_name")
          private String firstname;
          @Column(name = "last_name")
          private String lastname;
          @Column(name = "uuid")
          private String uuid;
          // Constructors and Getter/Setter methods,
          public Person(){
              UUID uuid = UUID.randomUUID();
              this.uuid = uuid.toString();
          public Long getPersonId() {
              return personId;
          // getters and setters...
          public String toString(){
              return "["+personId+"/"+uuid+"]: "+firstname+" "+lastname;
    • The inheriting Employee class:
      package com.viztronix.mappings;
      import java.util.Date;
      import javax.persistence.*;
      public class Employee extends Person {
          private Date joiningDate;
          private String departmentName;
          // getters and setters...
          public String toString() {
              return super.toString()+ " "+departmentName+" hired "+joiningDate.toString();
    • The ‘main’ program that calls the base class and subclass:
      package com.philfeldman.mains;
      import com.viztronix.mappings.Employee;
      import com.viztronix.mappings.Person;
      import org.hibernate.HibernateException;
      import java.util.Date;
      public class EmployeeTest extends BaseTest{
          public void addRandomPerson(){
              try {
                  Person person = new Person();
                  person.setFirstname("firstname_" + this.rand.nextInt(100));
                  person.setLastname("lastname_" + this.rand.nextInt(100));
              }catch (HibernateException e){
          public void addRandomEmployee(){
              try {
                  Employee employee = new Employee();
                  employee.setFirstname("firstname_" + this.rand.nextInt(100));
                  employee.setLastname("lastname_" + this.rand.nextInt(100));
                  employee.setDepartmentName("dept_" + this.rand.nextInt(100));
                  employee.setJoiningDate(new Date());
              }catch (HibernateException e){
          public static void main(String[] args){
              try {
                  boolean setupTables = false;
                  EmployeeTest et = new EmployeeTest();
                  for(int i = 0; i < 10; ++i) {
              }catch (Exception e){
    • And some output. First, from the Java code with the Hibernate SQL statements included. It’s nice to see that the same strategy that I was using for my direction db interaction is being used by Hibernate::
      Hibernate: alter table employee drop foreign key FK_apfulk355h3oc786vhg2jg09w
      Hibernate: drop table if exists employee
      Hibernate: drop table if exists person
      Hibernate: create table employee (department_name varchar(255), joining_date datetime, person_ID bigint not null, primary key (person_ID))
      Hibernate: create table person (person_ID bigint not null auto_increment, first_name varchar(255), last_name varchar(255), uuid varchar(255), primary key (person_ID))
      Hibernate: alter table employee add index FK_apfulk355h3oc786vhg2jg09w (person_ID), add constraint FK_apfulk355h3oc786vhg2jg09w foreign key (person_ID) references person (person_ID)

    • Last, here’s what was produced in the db: dbResults
    • Starting on the network data model
    • Added NetworkType(class) network_types(table)
    • Added BaseNode(class) network_nodes(table)
      • The mapping for the types in the BaseNode class looks like this (working from this tutorial):
        public class BaseNode {
            @GeneratedValue(strategy= GenerationType.AUTO)
            private int id;
            private String name;
            private String guid;
            @JoinColumn(name = "type_id")
            private NetworkType type;
            public BaseNode(){
                UUID uuid = UUID.randomUUID();
                guid = uuid.toString();
            public BaseNode(String name, NetworkType type) {
       = name;
                this.type = type;
            public String toString() {
                return "["+id+"]: name = "+name+", type = "+type.getName()+", guid = "+guid;
      • No changes needed for the NetworkType class, so it’s a one-way relationship, which is what I wanted:
        public class NetworkType {
            @GeneratedValue(strategy= GenerationType.AUTO)
            private int id;
            private String name = null;
            public NetworkType(){}
            public NetworkType(String name) {
       = name;
            // ...
            public String toString() {
                return "["+id+"]: "+name;
