[SOLVED] createCriteria() is deprecated

I found a solution for the deprecated createCriteria() method. Instead of using the Criteria object, use CriteriaQuery. The complete updated fetchAllContacts() method looks like this:

    private static List<Contact> fetchAllContacts() {
        // Open a session
        Session session = sessionFactory.openSession();

        // Create Criteria object
        CriteriaQuery<Contact> criteriaQuery = 

        // Get a list of Contact objects according to the Criteria object
        List<Contact> contacts = session.createQuery(criteriaQuery).getResultList();

        // Close the session

        return contacts;

the package for this CriteriaQuery is javax.persistence.criteria.CriteriaQuery;
