Object states in Hibernate

A persistent class object can be in one of the following three states:

  1. Transient.
  2. Persistent.
  3. Detached.

1. Transient:

A persistent class object is said to be in transient state if it is not associated with hibernate session.

2. Persistent:

A persistent class object is said to be in transient state if it is associated with hibernate session.

3. Detached:

A persistent object becomes detached object when hibernate session is closed.

Example:

//Create the student object. Student object is in trabsient state here.
Student student = new Student();
 
//Setting the object properties.
student.setFirstName("Vivek");
student.setLastName("Solenki");
student.setClassName("MCA final");
student.setRollNo("MCA/07/70");
student.setAge(27);
 
//Get the session object.
Session session = HibernateUtil.getSessionFactory().openSession();
//Start hibernate transaction.
session.beginTransaction();
 
//Persist the student object. Student object is in persistence state here.
session.save(student);
 
//Commit hibernate transaction.
session.getTransaction().commit();
 
//Close the hibernate session.
session.close();
 
// Student object is in detached state here 
//if we want to do any operation on it.
