Hibernate Component mapping with dependent object xml based

Component dependent object

A component is a contained object that is persisted as a value type and not an entity reference. The term "component" refers to the object-oriented notion of composition and not to architecture-level components. 

Component xml mapping


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE hibernate-mapping PUBLIC

Saving Objects to Component mapping
	public void insertStudent(Student student) {
		Session s = getSession();
		Transaction transaction = s.beginTransaction();

Retrieving Objects from Component Mapping (session.get())
public Student getStudent(long id) {
		Student sd = null;
		Session s = getSession();
		sd = (Student) s.get(Student.class, id);
		return sd;
