Annotation Type NaturalIdCache

  • @Target(TYPE)
    public @interface NaturalIdCache
    Specifies that mappings from the natural id values of the annotated entity to the corresponding entity id values should be cached in the shared second-level cache. This allows Hibernate to sometimes avoid round trip to the database when a cached entity is retrieved by its natural id.

    This annotation is usually used in combination with Cache, since a round trip may only be avoided if the entity itself is also available in the cache.
