    HQL stands for Hibernate Query Language. It is an object-oriented query language which is much similar to SQL( Structured Query Language). But the only difference is that, while SQL works with tables and columns, HQL operates with persistent objects and their properties. HQL is then translated into traditional queries (SQL), which perform the desired command on the database. HQL provides simpler support to relational operations.
