Using entityGraph with a Session

Asked by At

I have a method (let's call it FOO) that I use a couple of times. The result is an entity (let's call it MyEntity) that contains a lot of EAGER columns. In one scenario, I want this to fetch in a LAZY way.

  1. The problem is that I can't change the entity's Fetch type to LAZY, because most of the times, the EAGER helps, and I can't use entityGraph inside FOO because I want it to be lazy in one scenario. Is there any option to define in advance for a specific session that all the transactions that use MyEntity will be Lazy? (with EntityGraph)

  2. This is the code of the fetching -

        Criteria criteria = session.createCriteria(MyEntity.class)
                .add(Restrictions.eq("rowType.code", (long) rowType));
        return criteria.list();

    even if I had a way to know that I'm in a specific scenario - how can I add the EntityGraph to the session?
