Hibernate Select Clause

In this we will write example code to select the data from Users table using Hibernate Select Clause. The select clause picks up objects and properties to return in the query result set. Here is the query:

SELECT user.userName FROM UserDetails user


package com.sdnext.hibernate.tutorial.dto;

import javax.persistence.Column;
import javax.persistence.Entity;
import javax.persistence.GeneratedValue;
import javax.persistence.GenerationType;
import javax.persistence.Id;
import javax.persistence.Table;

public class UserDetails 
 private int userId;
 private String userName;
 public int getUserId() {
  return userId;
 public void setUserId(int userId) {
  this.userId = userId;
 public String getUserName() {
  return userName;
 public void setUserName(String userName) {
  this.userName = userName;


  <!-- Database connection settings -->
   <property name="connection.driver_class">com.mysql.jdbc.Driver</property> 
   <property name="connection.url">jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/hibernateDB</property> 
   <property name="connection.username">root</property> 
   <property name="connection.password">root</property> 

  <!-- JDBC connection pool (use the built-in) -->
   <property name="connection.pool_size">1</property> 

  <!-- SQL dialect -->
   <property name="dialect">org.hibernate.dialect.MySQLDialect</property> 

  <!-- Enable Hibernate's automatic session context management -->
    <property name="current_session_context_class">thread</property> 
  <!-- Disable the second-level cache -->
   <property name="cache.provider_class">org.hibernate.cache.NoCacheProvider</property> 

  <!-- Echo all executed SQL to stdout -->
   <property name="show_sql">true</property> 
  <!-- Drop and re-create the database schema on startup -->
   <property name="hbm2ddl.auto">update</property> 
   <mapping class="com.sdnext.hibernate.tutorial.dto.UserDetails">

   System.out.println("User Name: " + userName);
