Hibernate : SQL Dialects List

Hibernate supports many databases, by using dialect (hibernate.dialect) property in hibernate generates the appropriate SQL for the selected database. This idea makes us to develop database vendor independent application so that if you switch to another application just change dialect only.

Define dialect : Below is example of dialect for H2 database you can use according to your database.

In hibernate.cfg.xml


In application.properties with Spring boot + JPA
