Hibernate.initialize() ClassCastException

Hi everyone, this is not really a question but just something to help everyone who's having issues with Hibernate.initialize() where it returns a ClassCastException.

I followed the exact same steps in the video but was stuck with a ClassCastException for hours until I realized that it was Hibernate6+ dependency that made my life a nightmare. I downgraded to Hibernate 5.x.x and everything worked just fine!

Hope this helps.
