Projection in Hibernate

By Shambhu Kumar  |  10:09 No comments

In criteria, we are able to load complete object.
For loading the partial objects while working with criteria, the projections concept is introduced in hibernate 3.0 and mainly we can do the following 2 operations using the projection
·         We can load partial object from the database
·         We can find the Result of Aggregate functions

Projection is an Interface given in “org.hibernate.criterion” package, Projections is an class given in same package, actually Projection is an interface, and Projections is an class and is a factory for producing projection objects.
In Projections class, we have all static methods and each method of this class returns Projection interface object.
If we want to add a Projection object to Criteria then we need to call a method setProjection ()
Note: - While adding projection object to criteria, it is possible to add one object at a time.  It means if we add 2nd projection object then this 2nd one will overrides the first one (first one won’t be work), so at a time we can only one projection object to criteria object.
Using criteria, if we want to load partial object from the database, then we need to create a projection object for property that is to be loaded from the database.

public class ProjectionExample {
            public static void main(String[] args) {
                        Session sess = null;
                         try {
                                       SessionFactory sfact = new Configuration().configure().buildSessionFactory();
                                       sess = sfact.openSession();
                                       Criteria crit = sess.createCriteria(Product.class);
                                        ProjectionList proList = Projections.projectionList();
                                        List list = crit.list();
                                        Iterator it = list.iterator();
                                        if (!it.hasNext()) {
                                                      System.out.println("No any data!");
                                         } else {
                                                       while (it.hasNext()) {
                                                                 Object[] row = (Object[]) it.next();
                                                                  for (int i = 0; i < row.length; i++) {
                                                                            System.out.print(row[i] + "           ");

                                       List result = crit.list();
                                       System.out.println("No. of rows: " + result);
                                       List distList = crit.list();
                                       System.out.println("Distinct Count:  " + distList);

                                       proList = Projections.projectionList();
                                        List sumResult = crit.list();
                                         System.out.println("Total price Amount: " + sumResult);

                        } catch (Exception e) {

Hibernate: select this_.name as y0_, this_.price as y1_ from Product this_
Computer           23000.0          
Mobile           15000.0          
Laptop           200.0          
Keyboard           1500.0          
PenDrive           200.0          
HardDisk           2500.0          
Computer           100.0          

Hibernate: select count(*) as y0_ from Product this_
No. of rows: [7]
Hibernate: select distinct count(distinct this_.name) as y0_ from Product this_
Distinct Count:  [6]
Hibernate: select sum(this_.price) as y0_ from Product this_
Total price Amount: [42500.0]
