My casestudyList is coming up empty when I call the waterquality information. I looked at the joined table and it was also empty. I have read the flushing the session helps, but it didnt work for my case. I have also seen examples where setting "" at the method level helps, but I am not sure is this truly solves the problem. I am new to hibernate and Java in general. Anyone have any good ideas? Appreciate any solid inputs!
