Batch insert in Hibernate

This example program shows how to insert multiple rows using the batch processing in hibernate. when there are thousand of rows to be persisted, everytime iterating and inserting will cause the memory problem. Hibernate stores all the persisted objects in the memory. To avoid this problem use batch processing in the hibernate.

To use the batch processing feature, first set hibernate.jdbc.batch_size as 50. This will tell the hibernate container that every 50 rows to be inserted as batch. Also there is a slight change in the code.

for (int i =0;i<100;i++)
        {
            EmployeeInfo employeeInfo = new EmployeeInfo();
            employeeInfo.setSno(1);;
            employeeInfo.setName("Value : "+String.valueOf(i));
            session.save(employeeInfo);
            if (i%50 == 0)
            {
                session.flush();
                session.clear();
            }
        }

the above code is used for inserting 50 rows. Do remember to call session.flush() every time. That will make the data to be persisted.
