Hibernate / Hibernate interview questions II
Difference between sorted and ordered collection in hibernate.
Sorted collection is the way of sorting a collection by leveraging the sorting features provided by the Java collections framework. This sorting uses Java comparator and it takes place in the memory of JVM in which Hibernate is running, once the data being read from database.
Ordered collection refers to the sorting of a collection by specifying the order-by clause when retrieval.
Ordered collection is preferred for larger data set whereas if the collection is considerably small, sorted collection is preferred. Smaller the collection lesser impact on the JVM memory.
