First, you must enable logging for the below categories:

Two different log categories and log levels to log executed SQL statements and their parameters which is used by Hibernate are explained below:

  • For the org.hibernate.SQL category, SQL statements should be written as a DEBUG message.
  • For the org.hibernate.type.descriptor.sql category, bind parameters should be logged in with log level TRACE.

In the log configuration, you can activate & deactivate them without depending on each other. 

 The following code snippet will explain log4j configuration which will activate both:

# To log the SQL statements

#To log the JDBC parameters to the query.

 Here, if you observe the first one is equivalent to hibernate.show_sql=true legacy property. Whereas, the second one prints the bound parameters among other things.
