There are two problems with the book. The first is that it is written for ANT and not Eclipse. Does anyone use ANT anymore? The second is that there is only one basic sample program in the book. The rest is lists of parameters and how they are used. I was expecting more program examples.

That said, I have not found other books or online tutorials that are any better making this the best of a bad lot.

I tried to put Hibernate to use on a project and I was able to but not with the help of this book. Its just badly written. Its a shame and I hardly give out negative feedback, but this one deserves it. I found out always reaching out to search engines to get what I want after I read the section(s) that I was interested in the book because I was still lost or still confused. I am still lost and confused but I did not need a book that I bought to remind me of it. Enough is enough..

Format: Paperback
The book started well until arrives the time to run the codes...

1. lack of step by step instructions to install jar files in order to run the provided codes.

Result : you dont know where they are supposed to be stored.

2. Why introducing ant build tool if you dont even provide the ant command to load the jar files and run the code?

3. chapter 01 is just UFO. What are we supposed to do with it ? Why dont you show the output that the code are suppose to display.

I've just spent 4 hours searching for a way to make chpter 01 running... pff i'm done

This is a very concise and clearly written book for folks new to Hibernate that unravels many mysteries for newcomers. It was not until I came across this book that I actually managed to get Hibernate working with my PostgreSQL database application. There is an excellent case study with detailed explanations that covers one-to-many and many-to-many database examples from the ground up with a dataset (retrieved online) that has just the right amount of complexity for a beginner. This book effectively teaches how to apply Hibernate as an ORM solution without getting overly complex too fast. Annotations are covered (and favored) vs using XML which in my opinion is the most current and easy way to implement Hibernate.

Another reviewer mentioned this book being written for Ant and not Eclipse. There is an appendix that covers using Eclipse with Hibernate at the end of the book. I also would like to add that not everyone uses Eclipse. Myself, I prefer IntelliJ as an IDE, but it also includes a wonderful plugin for Hibernate. A book should not be judged on whether or not it covers your favorite IDE. Learning how to incorporate Hibernate into an IDE should be left to the developer.
