Update statement in Hibernate

I am using Spring with Hibernate. Is it possible to set the value of a column in all the rows of a table to a specific value, like a plain SQL update statement such as "update sometable set somecolumn='A'"?

Currently I am using HQL to get each row's object, set the field value, and then update the object to the database. I think this way of doing is not very efficient.
