The get() and load() methods are two commonly used methods to load data from your database. However, they have a few differences and they are listed below.
The get() method loads the object and the associate data as soon as it is called. Load() returns a proxy object and loads the data only when required. Since hibernate is default set to lazy load, the load() method is more suitable.
The load() method throws an exception when the query's data is not found, whereas get() returns a null.
