This book is written for professional Java developers who already understand how to build server-side Java applications. After a quick overview of Hibernate in the first two chapters, the authors jump right to the code. They show how to do the following:. After covering these essentials, the authors go further, showing readers how to use Hibernate in the real world. This means demonstrating how to use Hibernate with other popular tools that readers are using including Eclipse, Tomcat, Maven, Struts, and XDoclet.
This book takes a very real-world, hands-on approach to these topics and includes many working code examples, as well as a sophisticated sample application. Whether you are using simple objects or collections, Hibernate reduces your development time by handling most of the common data persistence tasks.
Finally, you will take that basic knowledge into your real-world applications, learning to use Hibernate with other tools such as Eclipse, Tomcat, Maven, Struts, and Xdoclet. This book is for professional Java developers who already know how to build sophisticated applications and have at least a general familiarity with databases, Java application development, and Web development.
No prior experience with Hibernate is required. Wrox Professional guides are planned and written by working programmers to meet the real-world needs of programmers, developers, and IT professionals.
Focused and relevant, they address the issues technology professionals face every day. They provide examples, practical solutions, and expert education in new technologies, all designed to help programmers do a better job. Eric Pugh is a member of the Maven development team and an experienced Java enterprise developer specializing in database application design and development, and open source tool integration. He has contributed Hibernate-related code to many projects, including XDoclet and OSWorkflow, and is currently leading development of the Hibernate plugin for Maven.
Eric has built several Hibernate applications for clients including a Web-based lab automation application and regularly uses Hibernate with Eclipse and Maven. In addition to writing documentation and specifications, Eric has written for OnJava. Gradecki is a software engineer at Comprehensive Software Solutions, where he works on their SABIL product, an enterprise-level securities processing system.

The publisher would have shown much more business sense if it had taken time for a really solid book on Hibernate 3.
The amount of typos and inaccuracies both in the text and in the code is staggering. Several interesting subjects are mentioned, like AspectJ and Design Patterns, but in a too wrod way to be of any real help. Gradecki, I hope you have not really co-authored this drox just supplied the AspectJ chapter I’m a fan of a lot of Wrox books – I probably own of them.
This is the wost one I have ever bought.
When learning a new technology with a book, I like to start with an overview, then some simple examples. I read the chapters that cover those start to finish.
I then selectively read other parts of hibenrate book where I need more detailed knowledge, and save the rest of the book for reference on an as-needed basis. This book was laid out if you simply look at the Table of Contents as if I could do that – so I bought it. The introduction was ok. I’ve used hiberante object-relational tools before and I wasn’t quite sure why Hibernate was special or different.
The key thing that it took me WAY too long to figure out was that with Hibernate you’re thinking Java-centric and are persisting objects to a database, whereas with other tools you’re thinking database-centric and generating a layer of Java objects to access that database. I had to read an awful lot to figure that out.
As others have said, this book is FULL of typos. Among my favorites is the one on page 20 where they introduce the SessionFactory and in the huge diagram they call it “SessionFactor. On page 28 they give an example where they basically say paraphrasing “lets pretend you have a server with an IP address of In the following sentence they say to replace localhost with your actual server address, apparently having forgotten all about the Awful, and now potentially confusing to people.
Where I really gave up all hope on this book was the first example where they took a program and gave it the ability to persist data with Hibernate. First off, a good demo program should be DEAD simple, so you focus your time reading the code that has to change Hibernate-relatedrather than reading all the code that has to run the demo. Their demo code literally runs from pageand uses a Swing UI.
They say that they’re going to take this program and step through how to make it persist “That is the goal of the remainder of this section” they say. They go on to step through how to take an example and make it work for hibernate, but never showed you the code BEFORE hibernate was in it. At this point, after a little more browsing around, I gave up on this book. I should have read the Amazon reviews first.
Do yourself a favor and buy a different book based on what the other reviewers have read – that’s what I’m going to do. I’d actually give this book 0 stars if I could. I have never purchased such a bad technical book in 16 years of spending my money on these things.
This book is full of coding errors, explanation errors, and typographical errors. The authors fail to point out very important information needed to get their examples working. The downloadable examples are organized in folders for the wrong chapters. The examples don’t work when applied to configurations described in the text. The litany of problems goes on and on.
The fact the book mentions no technical reviewers should have tipped me off. The supporting Web page at Wrox qrox no errata entries, even though the book has hundreds of mistakes. The forum on the book is dead. If you want to post errata you have to register, and then when you do it rejects your login. Perhaps that accounts hibernae no errata. I’d say the authors have no interest in maintaining such a list themselves, or else have moved on to other hobbies.
As a Java developer Hinernate strongly recommend anyone contemplating this book moves on and buys another book instead. I’d recommend the book by Will Iverson “Hibernate: The only positive thing I could say for the book is that it will force you do a lot of hunting down of answers to help you get through all the problems that working through their examples will give you.
Having to fix a problem is often the best way to understand the details of a tool, API, or issue. But as a way of learning a technology I’d not recommend it. Most developers have enough of such frustrations in their day to day job to deal with already. Do the authors know JAVA? I fully agree with the other reviewers. Unfortunately, I bought the book before I checked wro comments out here.
This is a book which does appear to be good – lots of code examples and all that. But it all comes to naught when the code is fraught with errors.
And such terrible errors that I wonder whether the authors know Java at all. Here is a code snippet they have used to illustarte binary data being saved in Hibernate: If binary data setting was so easy, we wouldnt have so many web-sites dealing with how to save Blobs into the database.
There are typos and code errors galore. My advice – stay away from this book!
I hear “Hibernate in Action” is much better hibernaye it has been well reviewed by folks at theserverside. So I should think that that should be a better option. See all 20 reviews.
