Hi
I am getting the "org.hibernate.LazyInitializationException: could not initialize proxy - no Session" error while running my application:
I am using the Restful Webservices in GlassFish application server. I configured the Hibernate properties in the persistence.xml file. (GlassFish App server + Hibernate + Restful Webservices(jersey)).
I am using the Lazy loading.

Assume these is the situation:

I have Employee object and Department object.

The department object is declared as the member variable in the Employee object.

Public class Employee {

public int empno;
public String empName;
public Department department;

public void setDepartment(Department dept){
//......
//......
//do something
}

@NotNull
@ManyToOne(fetch = FetchType.LAZY)
@JoinColumn(name = "XYZ")
public Department getDepartment(){
//......
//......
//do something
}



//setter and getting for each methods
}

public class Department {
//......
//......
}


i am getting this Employee object using EntityManger find method .
I got the employee object and if i exeucte the getEmpNo oir getEmpName , i am getting the value.

but if i try to get the Department(while running the getDepartment method),
I am getting this

"org.hibernate.LazyInitializationException: could not initialize proxy - no Session"

Please could you explaing me , where is the problem and which one causing the problem.

Hibernate is trying to save you some overhead if you load the Employee object but don't need the Department object. Basically hibernate returns a proxy object that doesn't load the Department from the database until you actually call it. However that causes a problem when you open the session in your DAO and then the session closes when your DAO completes. Then you return the Employee object to your web layer and it called getDepartment which the proxy tries to load from the database and discovers there in no session and throws an Exception.

Please do not cross-post the same question in multiple forums. It wastes people's time when multiple redundant conversations take place. Please read this for more information.
