This package abstracts persistence mechanisms for entities, and defines the Hibernate runtime metamodel.
Strategies for persisting entities implement the EntityPersister interface. Optionally, they may implement certain additional interfaces that define contracts with various loaders. Concrete implementations in this package define the built-in inheritance mapping strategies.
|Provides the information needed to properly handle type discrimination in HQL queries, either by 'something.class' or 'type(something)' references.
|Implementors define mapping and persistence logic for a particular strategy of entity mapping.
|Anything that can be loaded by outer join - namely persisters for classes or collections.
|Implemented by a EntityPersister that may be loaded using Loader.
|Contract for things that can be locked via a
|A EntityPersister that may be loaded by outer join using the OuterJoinLoader hierarchy and may be an element of a one-to-many association.
|Abstraction of all mappings that define properties: entities, collection elements.
|Extends the generic EntityPersister contract to add operations required by the Hibernate Query Language
|A class persister that supports queries expressed in the platform native SQL dialect
|Basic functionality for persisting an entity via JDBC through either generated or custom SQL

|Not really a Loader, just a wrapper around a named query.
|The default implementation of the EntityPersister interface.
|Implementation of the "table-per-concrete-class" or "roll-down" mapping strategy for an entity and its inheritence hierarchy.
