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.

This book is for Java developers who want to learn about Hibernate.

Editorial Reviews

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

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.
