what is the purpose and activity of SessionFactory in hibernate?..

Answer / pranay bhawsar

The SessionFactory is created from a Configuration object, and as its name implies it is a factory for Session
objects.
 
The SessionFactory is an expensive object to create. It, like the Configuration object, is usually created during
application start up. However, unlike the Configuration object, It should be created once and kept for later
use.

The SessionFactory object is used by all the threads of an application. It is a thread safe object. One
SessionFactory object is created per database. Multiple SessionFactory objects (each requiring a separate
Configuration) are created when connecting to multiple databases. The SessionFactory can also provide
caching of persistent objects.

The main use of session factory object is to get the session object for the application.

what is the purpose and activity of SessionFactory in hibernate?..

Answer / yograj pandey

SessionFactory is Hibernate's concept of a single datastore
and is threadsafe so that many threads can access it
concurrently and request for sessions and immutable cache of
compiled mappings for a single database. A SessionFactory is
usually only built once at startup. SessionFactory should be
wrapped in some kind of singleton so that it can be easily
accessed in an application code.

SessionFactory sessionFactory = new
Configuration().configure().buildSessionfactory();

what is the purpose and activity of SessionFactory in hibernate?..

Answer / soumya ranjan

The main contract here is the creation of Session instances. Usually an application has a single SessionFactory instance and threads servicing client requests obtain Session instances from this factory.

The internal state of a SessionFactory is immutable. Once it is created this internal state is set. This internal state includes all of the metadata about Object/Relational Mapping.

Implementors must be threadsafe.

what is the purpose and activity of SessionFactory in hibernate?..

Answer / ankur

Configuration object is used to create a SessionFactory object which inturn configures Hibernate for the application using the supplied configuration file and allows for a Session object to be instantiated. The SessionFactory is a thread safe object and used by all the threads of an application.

The SessionFactory is is heavyweight object so usually it is created during application start up and kept for later use. You would need one SessionFactory object per database using a separate configuration file. So if you are using multiple databases then you would have to create multiple SessionFactory objects.
