If you’re trying to find out what database, username, and password Hibernate is using to execute the query, continue. This post is a reference for me, and it might be useful to someone else someday.
Set a debug point anywhere you can get to the Hibernate session. For instance, anywhere a Query is in scope.
The Query has a session, which has a jdbcContext, which has a connectionManager, which has a factory, which has a connectionProvider. Looking at the objects in the debugger, the factory has a settings object which holds the connectionProvider. Or, get to the connectionProvider from the session by executing this (Alt-F8 for execute in Idea):
You may put any expression that returns the session in place of “((QueryImpl) query).getSession()”.
This connection provider has a datasource (ds). This is the object you need to explore. Implementations will vary. In my case, the PoolBackedDataSource has a WrapperConnectionPoolDataSource which has a nestedDataSource of type DriverManagerDataSource. Inside here is the jdbcUrl, which shows where it is connection, and a properties member which includes “user” and “password” properties. There’s the information I was looking for, with the password in plain text.
Maybe there’s an easier way to do this, but this worked.
