Recently, on of my followers asked me to answer a question on Quora about batch processing, and, since the question was really interesting, I decided to turn it into a blog post.
In this article, you are going to find out what batch processing is, why do we use it, and how to use it properly with JPA and Hibernate.

Yesterday, my Danish friend, Flemming Harms, asked my a very interesting question related to when a JDBC batch update fails.
Basically, considering we are going to group several DML statements in a batch, we need a way to tell which statement is the cause of the failure. This post is going to answer this question in more detail.

JDBC batching has a significant impact on reducing transaction response time. As previously explained, you can enable batching for
DELETE statements with just one configuration property:
<property name="hibernate.jdbc.batch_size" value="5"/>
However, this setting affects every Persistence Context, therefore every business use case inherits the same JDBC batch size. Although the
hibernate.jdbc.batch_size configuration property is extremely useful, it would be great if we could customize the JDBC batch size on a per Persistence Context basis. This article demonstrates how easily you can accomplish this task.

Now that I covered Hibernate batch support for INSERT, UPDATE and DELETE statements, it’s time to analyze SELECT statements result set batch fetching.
JDBC ResultSet fetching
The JDBC ResultSet offers a client-side Proxy cursor for fetching the current statement return data. When the statement gets executed, the result must be transferred from the database cursor to the client-side one. This operation can either be done at once or on demand.

In my previous post, I explained the Hibernate configurations required for batching INSERT and UPDATE statements. This post will continue this topic with DELETE statements batching.
Domain model entities
We’ll start with the following entity model:
