In the ContactDao interface, add a findAll method that returns a List of Contact objects. Then, in ContactDaoImpl.java i

Bummer! 2 out of 2 tests failed. See preview for more details.

The following code passed the challenge for me.

Interface

package com.teamtreehouse.contactmgr.dao;

import com.teamtreehouse.contactmgr.model.Contact;

import java.util.List;

public interface ContactDao {
  List<Contact> findAll();
}

Impl class

package com.teamtreehouse.contactmgr.dao;

import com.teamtreehouse.contactmgr.model.Contact;
import org.hibernate.Session;
import org.hibernate.SessionFactory;
import org.springframework.beans.factory.annotation.Autowired;
import org.springframework.stereotype.Repository;

import java.util.List;

@Repository
public class ContactDaoImpl implements ContactDao {
    @Override
    @SuppressWarnings("unchecked")
    public List<Contact> findAll() {
        // Open a session
/*        Session session = sessionFactory.openSession();

        // DEPRECATED as of Hibernate 5.2.0
        // List<Category> categories = session.createCriteria(Category.class).list();

        // Create CriteriaBuilder
        CriteriaBuilder builder = session.getCriteriaBuilder();

        // Create CriteriaQuery
        CriteriaQuery<Category> criteria = builder.createQuery(Category.class);

        // Specify criteria root
        criteria.from(Category.class);

        // Execute query
        List<Category> categories = session.createQuery(criteria).getResultList();

        // Close session
        session.close();*/

        return null;
    }
}

Without seeing your error output I could only make a guess. It could be the @Autowired annotation that I omitted.

When I added the two lines of code for autowired I get the following compiler error:

org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanCreationException: Error creating bean with name 'contactDaoImpl': Injection of autowired dependencies failed; nested exception is org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanCreationException: Could not autowire field: private org.hibernate.SessionFactory com.teamtreehouse.contactmgr.dao.ContactDaoImpl.sessionFactory; nested exception is org.springframework.beans.factory.NoSuchBeanDefinitionException: No qualifying bean of type [org.hibernate.SessionFactory] found for dependency: expected at least 1 bean which qualifies as autowire candidate for this dependency. Dependency annotations: {@org.springframework.beans.factory.annotation.Autowired(required=true)}
    at org.springframework.beans.factory.annotation.AutowiredAnnotationBeanPostProcessor.postProcessPropertyValues(AutowiredAnnotationBeanPostProcessor.java:334)

It's also explained here: https://teamtreehouse.com/community/spring-hibernate-quiz-problem

The main thing you still need to do is return the list of contacts you retrieve. You are currently just returning null. It's probably a good idea to rename the variable for that so it's not the same name as the class.

it didn't work

package com.teamtreehouse.contactmgr.dao;

import com.teamtreehouse.contactmgr.model.Contact;
import org.hibernate.Session;
import org.hibernate.SessionFactory;
import org.springframework.beans.factory.annotation.Autowired;
import org.springframework.stereotype.Repository;

import java.util.List;
@Repository
public class ContactDaoImpl implements ContactDao{

  @Autowired
  private SessionFactory sessionFactory;


  @Override
  @SuppressWarnings("unchecked")
  public List<Contact> findAll(){

      Session session = sessionFactory.openSession();

     List<Contact> Contact = session.createCriteria(Contact.class).list();

      session.close();

      return Contact;
  }

}

The instruction states for now, it can return "null". So it should work.

I think how I solved it was comment out everything in the method except for the return statement. I realized they were asking to create the method structure, not the individual statements in the method.

still now working

package com.teamtreehouse.contactmgr.dao;

import com.teamtreehouse.contactmgr.model.Contact;
import org.hibernate.Session;
import org.hibernate.SessionFactory;
import org.springframework.beans.factory.annotation.Autowired;
import org.springframework.stereotype.Repository;

import java.util.List;
@Repository
public class ContactDaoImpl implements ContactDao{

  @Autowired
  private SessionFactory sessionFactory;


  @Override
  @SuppressWarnings("unchecked")
  public List<Contact> findAll(){

     // Session session = sessionFactory.openSession();

    // List<Contact> Contact = session.createCriteria(Contact.class).list();

  //    session.close();

      return null;
  }

}
