I have a one-to-many relationship defined as below
Now in my DAL, i'm calling this method
Since i have loaded Parent with Children, i should be able to use children collection outside of the transaction. But i'm getting Lazyinitialization Exception. This happens only when hibernate level 2 cache - ehcache is enabled and entity is getting loaded from the cache instead of the database (i.e. it is already loaded from another transaction and saved in the cache). If i disable it from config, it works as expected. Also if i initialize collection explicitly after find, it works as expected. I'm using Hibernate 5.2.6.Final with JPA 2.1.
Suitable Test Case can be found here: TestCase
JDK8, JPA 2.1
