Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
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

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.
