When we use the Oracle DataBase it has limits the size of byte arrays that can be passed to and/or from its JDBC driver. If we want to use large instances of binary or serializable type, then we should enable hibernate.jdbc.use_streams_for_binary. This is a system-level setting only.
Second-level and query cache
The properties prefixed by hibernate.cache allow to use a process or cluster scoped second-level cache system with Hibernate.
Query Language Substitution
Below as code given we can define new Hibernate query tokens using hibernate.query.substitutions. This would cause the tokens true and false to be translated to integer literals in the generated SQL. This would allow you to rename the SQL LOWER function.
hibernate.query.substitutions true=1, false=0
Any time in Hibernate If enable hibernate.generate_statistics, Hibernate exposes a number of metrics that are useful when tuning a running system via SessionFactory.getStatistics(). Hibernate can even be configured to expose these statistics via JMX. Read the Javadoc of the interfaces in org.hibernate.stats for more information.
