Hibernate in Actionby Christian Bauer
Synopses & Reviews
Hibernate practically exploded on the Java scene. Why is this open-source tool so popular? Because it automates a tedious task: persisting your Java objects to a relational database. The inevitable mismatch between your object-oriented code and the relational database requires you to write code that maps one to the other. This code is often complex, tedious and costly to develop. Hibernate does the mapping for you.
Not only that, Hibernate makes it easy. Positioned as a layer between your application and your database, Hibernate takes care of loading and saving of objects. Hibernate applications are cheaper, more portable, and more resilient to change. And they perform better than anything you are likely to develop yourself.
"Hibernate in Action" carefully explains the concepts you need, then gets you going. It builds on a single example to show you how to use Hibernate in practice, how to deal with concurrency and transactions, how to efficiently retrieve objects and use caching.
The authors created Hibernate and they field questions from the Hibernate community every day-they know how to make Hibernate sing. Knowledge and insight seep out of every pore of this book.
- ORM concepts
- Getting started
- Many real-world tasks
- The Hibernate application development process
Book News Annotation:
Hibernate substantially reduced the tedium and frequent errors Java developers and programmers encounter in matching object-oriented code to relational data bases. Bauer (member of the core development team) and King (founder and principal developer) first describe object/relational persistence, and how it relates to Hibernate. They then give practical advice on introducing and integrating Hibernate, including mapping persistent classes and working with persistent objects; conducting transactions, concurrency and caching; retrieving objects efficiently, writing applications; and using the toolset. Topics of appendices include SQL fundamentals, ORM implementation strategies, and a troubleshooting section. Distributed in the US by Independent Publishers Group.

Both an introduction to the theoretical aspects of automated object/relational mapping and a practical guide to using Hibernate, this resource provides extensive sample codes to implement an online auction application. Object persistence and the object/relational mismatch problem are discussed with an emphasis on the importance of Plain Old Java Objects. More advanced ORM concepts and techniques are introduced, such as the impact of ORM on application architecture and development processes along with specific techniques for achieving high performance. Effective uses for Hibernate's developer tool set are demonstrated.
