This book is an excellent one on Hibernate! The way the authors showed the mismatch between OO Model and existing Relational Model (would it be appropriate if I call existing SQL Model? SQL Model != Relational Model)is enlightening.They have shown why the above two models are orthogonal. The authors have shown how various OO concepts could be transparently implemented in O/R middleware. I have put this book on 'Must Read/Refer' category.Was this review helpful?

Essential Book for New and Experienced Developers
I have not read any other Hibernate Books but spent time digging through online Hibernate examples and the Hibernate Reference manual. This does work, but is a lot more tedious and frustrating than sitting down with a well-written book from the Hibernate authors. The Hibernate In Action book is a compact (408 pages), focused, no nonsense read and an essential resource for anyone venturing into the ORM landscape. The first three chapters of this book alone are indispensable for developers that want to quickly build an application leveraging Hibernate, but more importantly really want to understand Hibernate concepts, framework, methodology and the reasons that shaped the framework design. The remaining chapters continue the comprehensive overview of Hibernate that include how to map to and persist objects, inheritance, transactions, concurrency, caching, retrieving objects efficiently using HQL, configuring Hibernate for managed and unmanaged environments, and the Hibernate Toolset that can be leveraged for several different development scenarios.Was this review helpful?
