I'm using Hibernate/HQL/named queries to retrieve data from a database. In particular I use pagination (i.e. I control the number of results that are returned on any one query) so as not to pull thousands of rows from the database.

Here's the java code I have right now:

What I'd like to be able to do, however, is find out how many total results this query will return independent of the pagination (so I can display something like "Results 31 through 40 of 123" to the end user). I've looked at the Hibernate Query API but don't see anything help. Any ideas?

Hello David,

I been there before and what i did was kinda like a double query, one for the result and the other one for the count of the unpaged results. Hibernate do have a ScrollableResult that could help you a little with this.

This it's a reality that many of us encounter time to time when working with db, because of the paging and all that stuff, but there it's a pattern to solve this. Here explains about the Pagination pattern with diagrams and stuff.
What could go wrong in a swell place like "The Evil Eye"? Or with this tiny ad?
