Beginning Hibernate. 2nd Edition by Jeff Linwood

Hibernate is an amazing piece of software. With a little experience and the power of annotations, you can build a complex, database-backed system with disturbing ease. Once you have built a system using Hibernate, you will never want to go back to the traditional approaches.

While Hibernate is incredibly powerful, it presents a steep learning curve when you first encounter it—steep learning curves are actually a good thing because they impart profound insight once you have scaled them. Yet gaining that insight takes some perseverance and assistance.

Our aim in this book is to help you scale that learning curve by presenting you with the minimal requirements of a discrete Hibernate application, explaining the basis of those requirements, and walking you through an example application built using to them. We then provide additional material to be digested once the fundamentals are firmly understood. Throughout, we provide examples, rather than relying upon pure discourse. We hope that you will continue to find this book useful as a reference text long after you have become an expert on the subject.

Who This Book Is For

This book assumes a good understanding of Java fundamentals and some familiarity with database programming using the Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) API. We don’t expect you to know anything about Hibernate—but if you buy this book, it will probably be because you have some exposure to the painful process of building a large database-based system.

All of our examples use open source software—primarily the Hibernate API itself—so you will not need to purchase any software to get started with Hibernate development. This book is not an academic text. Our focus is instead on providing extensive examples and taking a pragmatic approach to the technology that it covers.

To true newcomers to the Hibernate API, we recommend that you read at least the first three chapters in order before diving into the juicy subjects of later chapters. Very experienced developers or those with experience with tools similar to Hibernate will want to skim through the latter half of the book for interesting chapters. Readers familiar with Hibernate will want to turn to the appendixes for discussion of more arcane topics.
