Overview

Beginning Hibernate, Second Edition is ideal if you’re experienced in Java with databases (the traditional, or “connected,” approach), but new to open-source, lightweight Hibernate—the de facto object-relational mapping and database-oriented application development framework.

This book packs ininformation about the release of the Hibernate 3.5 persistence layer and provides a clear introduction to the current standard for object-relational persistence in Java. 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.

Experienced authors Dave Minter and Jeff Linwood provide more in-depth examples than any other book for Hibernate beginners. The authors also present material in a lively, example-based manner—not a dry, theoretical, hard-to-read fashion.

What you’ll learn

  • How to build enterprise Java-based transaction-type applications that access complex data with Hibernate, including Software as a Service (SaaS)
  • How to work with Hibernate 3.5
  • Where to integrate into the persistence lifecycle, including cloud application implications
  • How to map using annotations, Hibernate XML files, and more
  • How to search and query with the new version of Hibernate
  • When to integrate with Spring, Grails, and more
