Overview

Beginning Hibernate is ideal if you’re experienced in Java with databases (the traditional, or connected, approach), but are new to open source lightweight Hibernate—the most popular de facto object-relational mapping and database-oriented application development framework. This book packs in information about the release of the Hibernate 3.2.x persistence layer and provides a clear introduction to the current standard for object-relational persistence in Java.



Experienced author Dave Minter and contributor Jeff Linwood provide more in-depth examples than any other books for Hibernate beginners. The authors also present material in a lively, example-based mannernot in a dry, theoretical, hard-to-read fashion. And since the book keeps its focus on Hibernate without wasting time on nonessential third-party tools, you’ll be able to immediately start building transaction-based engines and applications.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Java objects and relational databases weren't born for each other, but you've got to make them work together -- preferably without the hassle of traditional EJBs. The solution is Hibernate. To get started with Hibernate fast, the solution is Beginning Hibernate 3. Right up front, you'll learn why Hibernate-based object-relational mapping may be the best solution for most database persistence problems (though not all). You'll configure your environment, understand the persistence lifecycle, and learn all you need to know about mapping. Then, in this book's final three chapters, you'll turn to searches and queries, from the basics to advanced criteria-based queries and filtering.

There's just enough theory here, but no more than necessary -- and the book spends no time on irrelevant technologies. That leaves more time for useful examples -- of which you'll find plenty. Bill Camarda, from the October 2006 Read Only

Meet the Author

Dave Minter has adored computers since he was small enough to play in the boxes they came in. He built his first PC from discarded, faulty, and obsolete components, and considers that to be the foundation of his career as an integration consultant. Dave is based in London, where he helps large and small companies build systems that "just work." He co-authored Building Portals with the Java Portlet API and Pro Hibernate 3.
Jeff Linwood has been involved in software programming since he had a 286 in high school. He got caught up with the Internet when he got access to a UNIX shell account, and it has been downhill ever since. Jeff has published articles on several Jakarta Apache open source projects in Dr. Dobb's Journal, CNET's Builder.com, and JavaWorld. Jeff has a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering from Carnegie Mellon University. He currently works for the Gossamer Group in Austin, Texas, on content management and web application syndication systems. He gets to play with all the latest open source projects there. Jeff also co-authored Professional Struts Applications, Building Portals with the Java Portlet API, and Pro Hibernate 3. He was a technical reviewer for Enterprise Java Development on a Budget and Extreme Programming with Ant.

    Unfortunately, this book suffers from the B&N column lock down

    B&N does not ship the eBook in a format that allows the number of columns to be modified; thus, you are stuck reading code examples in 3 column mode, making the code snippets difficult to read. Unlike O'Reilly, who overcomes this obstacle by offering a $4.99 upgrade for friendlier eBook formats, Apress does does not offer this solution to their customers.
