Hibernate Query Caching - Why the misses?

Hi,

I'm using Hibernate 3.5 and ehcache 2.2.0 and have decided to improve my applications performance by implementing query caching. The problem I'm having is that according to the SessionFactory statistics, my second level query cache hits are 0 (i.e. I only get misses). However, if I watch my console I can see that the number of queries being executed by Hibernate on the database is reduced by about a 1/3. How can this be?

I have not marked any objects as cacheable, only a single query. Below is one of the queries, my relevant hibernate.cfg.xml settings, and the statistics.

Thanks.

Here's my ehcache.xml config (it's the default):

The value returned by my query is a list of BigDecimal objects. I have determined that when the query is made cacheable, it is actually throwing an exception on: query.list(); Not sure why this is happening...

Ok, I just read on a tutorial that Hibernate does not cache queries when created via session.createSQLQuery(..). Can anyone confirm this?

That article was incorrect. I was able to avoid the error by calling query.addScalar("field name...", Hibernate.BIG_DECIMAL)
