Joins are part of SQL/relational database theory and so are lifted directly into HQL, with some syntactic sugar. Here's a good article on them:

These are the basic join types in standard SQL. I would strongly suggest doing some basic SQL learning before using Hibernate as it will not entirely eliminate the need to know SQL.

Some people think they can use Hibernate as a means to entirely shield them from the relational data it is abstracting, this couldn't be any further from the truth.
