    Could you please tell me the difference between commit(method of
    Session) and flush(method of Transaction) in Hibernate?
    I read the book "Java Persistence with hibernate" which reference
    to DAO Pattern for JDK1.5.
    The main interface of the pattern is GenericDAO as below:

    public interface GenericDAO<T, ID extends Serializable> {
    T findById(ID id, boolean lock);
    List<T> findAll();
    List<T> findByExample(T exampleInstance,
    String... excludeProperty);
    T makePersistent(T entity);
    void makeTransient(T entity);
    void flush();
    void clear();

    what me me puzzled is why it has no method commit? And when should I
    call the method flush and when shuold I commit the transaction if I
    use this pattern?
