The simplest possible Hibernate query is of the form:
This returns all instances of the class
eg.Cat. You do not usually need to qualify the class name, since
auto-import is the default. For example:
In order to refer to the

as keyword is optional. You could also write:
from Cat cat
Multiple classes can appear, resulting in a cartesian product or "cross" join.
from Formula, Parameter
from Formula as form, Parameter as param
It is good practice to name query aliases using an initial lowercase as this is consistent with Java naming standards for local variables (e.g.
