Hibernate Recipes: A Problem-Solution Approach (Expert's Voice in Open Source)

Customer Reviews:

Good content. Needs editing!!! - code style???

By Wesley Freeman - July 28, 2010

I stepped out on a limb ordering this new book that doesn't have any reviews, mostly in order to get up to date information about the latest version of hibernate.

I'm an experienced Java developer, and until now I've largely written my own database layer, so I'm aware of the difficulties behind doing it. I've been meaning to check out hibernate for a while, and I finally had a project that would make good use of a framework (and that I was starting from scratch), so I decided to go for it.

First, let me say that I did get what I wanted from this book, meaning that it gave me some good ideas that I could immediately apply to the project I'm working on. For that I could have given it 5 stars.

In particular, I liked the several sections where they gave both the hbm.xml version and the annotation version of the mapping configuration for the solution code. To me, those sections were invaluable, giving me a greater understanding of how the annotation stuff... read more

nice content, few typos, horrible formatted sourcecode

By Michal Bernhard - January 23, 2011

I've already done some hibernate development both professionaly (in my daily job) and at home (pet projects) and from very beginning I used only free materials (hibernate reference, blogs, forums). Frankly my experience with Hibernate was in one word - FLUSTRATION. After I read this book from cover to cover I wish two things:
1) to read manual/guide/reference-like stuff from cover to cover to be exposed to details (because those little details are that stoppers and sources of flustration when we work with any thirdparty developed code)
2) read THIS book before my first exposure to hibernate framework

The book overrall is very good (for me as I mediocre programmer ;). It's usable by both beginners and intermediate users. Only prerequisite is knowledge of java (and maven skills would be handy too). As a a beginner you will discover all you need to know to solve all realworld and common daily problems and tasks like auditing, caching, inheritence, laziness, batching,... read more

Got it because of good reviews

By Data Virtue "Sean Anderson" - February 22, 2013

After you get hibernate set up and you've run a few examples successfully, get this book. To the point. It follows a format where they ask a question on how to solve a real-world problem in plain English, then they lay out the code followed by one-sentence explanations in both hbm/xml mapping AND JPA annotations. Don't wade through a 900 page book when this is all you need. View the Java Brains videos on Hibernate, then get this book. To make your life easier you might also want to get MySQL Workbench to build database models graphically, then use your IDE (Netbeans, Eclipse) to generate your Entity classes from the live database. All of these resources will get a large project converted to Hibernate in a flash (once you get it all figured out). Happy coding!
