How do I order the Criteria query result set?

In this demo you’ll see how to order the result set of out Criteria query. It can be done by adding the org.hibernate.criterion.Order into the Criteria object, and we can either order the result in ascending or descending order.

package org.kodejava.hibernate;

import org.hibernate.SessionFactory;
import org.hibernate.Session;
import org.hibernate.HibernateException;
import org.hibernate.Criteria;
import org.hibernate.cfg.Configuration;
import org.hibernate.criterion.Order;
import org.kodejava.hibernate.model.Track;

import java.util.List;

public class CriteriaOrderDemo {
    public static Session getSession() throws HibernateException {
        String cfg = "hibernate.cfg.xml";
        SessionFactory sessionFactory = new Configuration().configure(cfg)
        return sessionFactory.openSession();

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        try (Session session = getSession()) {
            Criteria criteria = session.createCriteria(Track.class)

            List<Track> tracks = criteria.list();
            for (Track track : tracks) {
                System.out.println("Track = " + track.getTitle());
