Interface Managed

  • All Superinterfaces:
    All Known Subinterfaces:
    ManagedComposite, ManagedEntity, ManagedMappedSuperclass

    public interface Managed
    extends PrimeAmongSecondarySupertypes
    Contract for classes (specifically, entities and components/embeddables) that are "managed". Developers can choose to either have their classes manually implement these interfaces or Hibernate can enhance their classes to implement these interfaces via built-time or run-time enhancement.

    The term managed here is used to describe both:

    • the fact that they are known to the persistence provider (this is defined by the interface itself)
    • its association with Session/EntityManager (this is defined by the state exposed through the interface)
