JPA is the main building block in most Java projects. However, a lot of developers still use it without a deep understanding of the technology, relying mainly on applying the copy-paste methodology from StackOverflow or existing system entities. During this presentation recorded at Devoxx Poland 2017, Jakub Kubrynski consolidates knowledge about object-relational mapping. We see how lazy loading works under the hood and understand the difference between a set, list or bag. He also talks about common traps leading to significant decreases in performance or improper behavior of the system.
