Hibernate / Hibernate interview questions II
Explain SQL Dialect in Hibernate.
Hibernate is database agnostic and it can work with different databases. However, databases have native SQL variations, and its own set of SQL standard implementations. Therefore at some point hibernate has to use database specific SQL. Hibernate uses "dialect" configuration to know which database you are using so that it can switch to the database specific SQL generator code wherever/whenever necessary.
