What frustrates Java database application developers most? Often, it's making object-oriented Java and relational databases work together smoothly. Hibernate 3 solves that problem with ease and elegance. This book solves the problem that remains: learning how to make the most of Hibernate.
Pro Hibernate 3 starts with a primer that any modestly experienced Java database developer can understand. Next, the authors illuminate the full range of Hibernate technical and design issues: persistence, mappings, criteria, HQL, sessions, transactions, locking, caching, multithreading, events, interceptors, filters, and more. Especially helpful: an honest chapter on integrating Hibernate into existing environments, with workarounds for its remaining limitations.
Incidentally, if you're waiting for EJB3, it'll be heavily informed by the Hibernate paradigm. So the best way to learn good EJB3 practices now is to start with Hibernate -- and this book. Bill Camarda, from the September 2005 Read Only
