Introduction In this article, we are going to see how we can fetch multiple JPA entity collections without generating an implicit Cartesian Product with the MULTISET strategy offered by the Blaze Persistence open-source project. The MULTISET fetch strategy is inspired by the MULTISET operator offered by jOOQ. If you are not familiar with the MULTISET operator, then check out this article first, in which I explain why this jOOQ feature is truly revolutionary.
Introduction In this article, we are going to see how the Spring Data JPA Query By Example (QBE) feature works, when you should use it, and what limitations it has. While Spring Data JPA already provides a wide range of options to query data: query methods or the @Query annotation Spring Data JPA Specification custom Repository query methods The Spring Data Query By Example feature is meant to offer a way to decouple the data filtering logic from the query processing engine so that you can allow the data access layer clients… Read More
Introduction In this article, we are going to see what is the best way to validate the DDL schema and the JPA entity mappings when using Spring and Hibernate. I decided to write this article after reading this Tweet:
Introduction In this article, we are going to see how Spring handles transaction and database connection management. I decided to write this article because this topic has been requested recurringly by the students taking my High-Performance Java Persistence training.
Introduction In this article, we are going to see what is the best way to use the Spring Data JPA Specification when combining multiple predicates with the result set ordering logic. While you can also use query methods or the @Query annotation to define your Spring Data queries, the Spring Data JPA Specification allows you to compose dynamically various filtering criteria, which may be very convenient when you’d, otherwise, end up with lots of query method permutations.
Introduction In this article, we are going to see how we can use the JOIN FETCH clause when fetching a child collection eagerly while also limiting the number of parent records using pagination in a Spring Data JPA application. I decided to write this article because the most common solution used in many projects turns out to be extremely inefficient.
Introduction In this article, we are going to see how Spring Data query methods are built, when you should use them, and especially when you should avoid them. I decided to write this article after answering this StackOverflow question, which depicts an 87-character-long Spring Data query method. TL;DR, Don’t write query methods that cannot even fit on the screen.
Introduction In this article, we are going to see how we can achieve fault tolerance in your Spring Data application with the help of YugabyteDB. As previously explained, YugabyteDB is an open-source distributed SQL database that combines the benefits of traditional relational databases with the advantages of globally-distributed auto-sharded database systems.
Introduction In this article, I’m going to explain how you can use the BaseJpaRepository from the Hypersistence Utils OSS project as an alternative to the default Spring Data JpaRepository. The reason why I’m not using the default JpaRepository on any of my Spring projects is that it provides some terrible defaults that can be very easily misused, like: The findAll Anti-Pattern The JPA save Anti-Pattern So, there are two ways you can fix the problems induced by the default JpaRepository: You can use the HibernateRepository to deprecate the questionable methods that you… Read More
Introduction In this article, I explain why the Hibernate Types became Hypersistence Utils, and how you can migrate your old dependency to Hypersistence Utils 3.0.
