Suppose I have following class,

I load Event from session object. Now when i use getSpeaker(), hibernate would lazily load the speaker collection(assuming lazy is true by default).

I wanted to understand the following concept:

When I do event.getSpeaker(), which give me a set containing Speaker, is the Speaker object populdated with data, or the stubs are loaded initially and then when i make call to Speaker method the object is actually populdated
