Whenever you create a SessionFactory, it parses all the configuration files(hbm or the cfg file) which is an expensive process. Repeatedly doing this will degrade the performance of the application.

Subject: Plan to Raise H-1b Cap by 30,000
Dear [decision maker name],
I strongly oppose the Senate Judiciary Committee's compromise proposal that would allow 30,000 additional H-1B visas each year. Instead, I urge you to support the current House Judiciary Committee's proposal, which would raise the L-1 visa fee to $1,500, but does not add any extra visas in either program. The increased fees would bring in more revenue, but would also more accurately reflect the cost to our society for supporting such programs.
It's well known by workers that the visa programs are awash with abuse by employers. They displace American workers, depress wages, and discourage young people from pursuing careers in the high-tech industry. It also puts foreign workers at risk and may further a "brain drain" in other countries. Most alarming, it encourages employers to use contingent staffing solutions, instead of creating jobs that support workers, their families, and their communities. This approach should only be used when it is essential, not as a permanent staffing strategy.
I urge you to consider the social costs of these visa programs and rein them in with increased costs, instead of expanding them with extra visas. As a high-tech worker, I am depending on you!

There will be enough pork in the bill so that the every politician has some must have legislation included. So I don't think even the committee absolutely ever has to vote on the bill by itself.
Arlen Spector and James Sensenbrenner are key players.
