Introduction to Hibernate

     This course tells you what you need to know to design and build your own Hibernate-enabled applications. You will learn the details of the key Hibernate capabilities and how to leverage their strengths, with a special focus on using Hibernate with other technologies and frameworks.

     At the same time, you will learn about the big picture of Hibernate and how to design applications to use Hibernate in a robust, efficient, secure, and maintainable fashion. If you want to deliver an application using Hibernate, you will find this course essential. This class combines lecture with a unifying, hands-on experience, and open discussion that will help the developer quickly understand the benefits of Hibernate and how to use the framework. Hibernate is a powerful enabling technology that addresses object/relational persistence using Java. Hibernate offers all the advantages of developing in Java plus a comprehensive suite of capabilities for mapping object-oriented features to the relational database model.
