SQL Recursive WITH CTE queries

Introduction In this article, we are going to see how SQL Recursive WITH CTE (Common Table Expression) queries work and how we can apply them for processing hierarchical data models.

SQL CROSS APPLY – A Beginner’s Guide

Introduction In this article, we are going to see how the SQL CROSS APPLY works and how we can use it to cross-reference rows from a subquery with rows in the outer table and build compound result sets. CROSS APPLY is basically equivalent to the LATERAL JOIN, and it’s been supported by SQL Server since version 2005 and Oracle since version 12c.

Use Hibernate Dynamic Update for JSON properties

Introduction In this article, I’m going to explain why you should always use the Hibernate Dynamic Update feature for entities that map JSON properties. Since Hibernate ORM does not offer support for JSON column types, we are going to use the Hibernate Types library, which provides a JsonType that allows you to map String, Map, List, JsonNode, Java Records, or POJOs on JSON columns, no matter if you are using PostgreSQL, MySQL, Oracle, SQL Server, or H2.

SQL Server Foreign Key Locking

Introduction In this article, we are going to see how SQL Server Foreign Key constraints are locking the parent record when executing a child record UPDATE. This situation is specific to SQL Server and happens even when using the Read Committed Snapshot Isolation level.
