Overview

This book is written for users experienced in using Java with databases but inexperienced in the use of the open source, lightweight Hibernate, the most popular de-facto object-relational mapping and database-oriented application development framework. The book has plentiful examples and handy reference sections, including a comprehensive reference for Hibernate O/R mapping strategies. Beginning Hibernate 3 is packed with brand-new information on the latest release of the Hibernate persistence layer and provides a clear introduction to the de facto standard for object relational persistence in Java. Readers will get started right away with building transaction-based engines and applications.

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.
