I am learning Hibernate and there are 2 things that are still confusing for me. Take a look at my example code:
Question 1. I read a lot of tutorials on the internet and also about the differences between getCurrentSession() and openSession(). I know that if i use openSession i need to manage the sessions myself and should also flush/close it. I used getCurrentSession in my example so i did not add a finally clause to close the session used. Is this correct or should i still close the session myself?
Question 2. Almost all example codes on the internet show a similar structure with a try/catch clause. But getCurrentSession also throws a HibernateException so why should i not put this in the try clause and catch an exception. I know it is a runtime exception but beginTransaction, save and commit also throw the same exception. Why do i catch these and not the one for getCurrentSession?
Please could someone help me to clarify these 2 questions? Thanks in advance.
