Hibernate is a powerful enabler that addresses object/relational persistence in the Java world. Hibernate offers all the advantages of developing in Java plus a comprehensive suite of capabilities for mapping object-oriented features to the relational model. This course tells you what you need to know to design and build your own Hibernate-enabled applications. You'll 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'll be learning 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'll find this course essential.
