how to ignore fetching a child table in hibernate

i have two tables . health & Network

This is my Health Table Entity:

   public class Health   implements Serializable {

private static final long serialVersionUID = 1L;

private int hid;

private int ivid;

@JoinColumn(name = "nwid")
@ManyToOne(fetch = FetchType.LAZY)
private Networks nwid;


I am trying to fetch a Health row against which there is nothing available in Network Table and thats why its not giving me that rows record of health table..

Where as i want that row from health and i dont want it to look into the network table for that record..

If i dont use crit.createAlias... server call get failed.

        session = sessionFactory.openSession();
        Criteria crit = session.createCriteria(Health.class);
        crit.createAlias("nwid", "network");
        crit.createAlias("network.statsId", "stats");
        crit.add(Restrictions.eq("ivid", 0));   
        Iterator<Health> it = crit.list().iterator();
        health  =;



Try to change this:

crit.createAlias("nwid", "network");


crit.createAlias("nwid", "network", CriteriaSpecification.LEFT_JOIN);
