Shouldn't sessionFactory.close() ?

Shouldn't sessionFactory.close() be called in the end of the program? Otherwise the application hangs.

1 Answer

In general, your application should have one sessionFactory which you open when you needed and close it when your are with it .... example ... when you exist a DAL method. I am not familiar with the video you are referring to, but if the video app is closing closing a running app and exiting the program ... then the memory will be freed anyway. It a good practice close the sessionFactory, before existing, regardless.
