Format: Paperback
This is a really nice book for folks who are working(or would be working) on integration projects where they need to use Hibernate in a Spring environment. But it's definitely not for beginners-one must be having some experience in Spring as well as Hibernate as this book is quite concise on fundamentals. I read the book from page 1 to 154 and i got what i was looking for. They had a very simple real life kind of example and they talked about it thru out the book. Authors didn't cut copy pasted anything from the web and tried to keep the number of pages in limit-which is very positive about this book.They also didn't introduced too many variables to the readers so that they can focus on Hibernate on Spring. I don't know maven and got errors while building and running the example source code(down loadable from the website). Wrote a question to the authors in Javaranch but no response till now. Didn't like maven-i am the ant person. Hope authors would do a small write up in terms of building and running the example in Tomcat with MySQL. They have illustrated the source code really well in the book. Authors has very good knowledge of Hibernate integration using Spring and that will help all the readers of this book.

Format: Paperback
If you are looking for a book to learn about Spring and Hibernate, pass your way. If you are looking for a reference, pass your way. So who is this book for ? I think it is aimed at people who want to try a simple application using Spring3 and Hibernate 3.x (JPA2). It is fast paced, straight to the point. If you know what you are doing, it's a fun book. You'll start by setting your development environment (authors use Maven), configure Spring and Hibernate, make some domain classes, make some DAOs... Very fun. But don't expect to find answers if you're stuck somewhere.

There are some interesting explanations about persistence optimization like caching and lazy-loading, as well as a chapter about integration of frameworks like Dozer and Lucene. It also mentions REST and Spring MVC, and concludes with Grails and Spring Roo. These last two might be out of topic, but they have their own merit. I think they are worth reading.

I didn't notice many typos. Source snippets are neither too short nor too big. They illustrate well the explanation they are attached to. I already know about Spring3 and JPA2, but I never used Hibernate as my persistence provider. This book provided me a chance to try it. I felt it was not like any other technical books. Very enjoyable.

I bought this book, but it did achieve my expectation. Th authors explain very well and with good details about subject giving the why of things. But there is not example to put it in practice, the existing examples are very bad. If you are looking for a book to learn Spring hands-on, this book is no recommended. I would not recommend this book for anyone.

Format: Paperback
There are a lot of books and online documentations covering Spring, Hibernate, and Grails, but this book is an extremely rare and well-written guide to engineer real-world applications using these frameworks. Any developer or architect can save an enormous amount of time by consulting this book rather than trying to research the best practices described here on their own.
The book is no reference manual and therefore focuses on application development through the combination of technologies, but the level of detail is high enough so that beginners can use the book to learn the frameworks quickly, while advanced users will enjoy the precise language and pace.
In short, using this book will improve understanding in one of the most important current technology stacks, speed up and simplify the development set up, keep the code more manageable and reduce risks while maintaining a great deal of flexibility.
I hope the authors will produce more excellent books like this one, maybe on topics like NoSQL stores (Riak), etc.

Format: Paperback
Apress' "Spring Persistence with Hibernate" covers Spring 3.0. (Take care that you don't confuse it with Packt's book with the same title which covers Spring 2.5)

The roadmap on the back cover implies you should have read "Beginning Spring" or "Beginning Hibernate." For an experienced developer, this isn't necessary. The key is that this book is fast moving so you should have some development background. It does cover beginner concepts - just faster.

The book goes beyond the title with bonus chapters on integration, Grails and Roo. It also covers the basic Spring MVC setup. I particularly liked the chapter with things to beware of including lazy loading and caching.

The only errors I caught were the case of @PostConstruct and @PreDestroy. They were consistently wrong which makes me think it was edited after the authors last saw it. I also noticed a JUnit version mismatch while not wrong per se. Didn't affect readability though and the testing coverage was still good.

Overall, I was happy with the book.

Know a good bit about both Spring and Hibernate but still learned a lot. Better ways to do things I do and and Technologies to implement with Spring.
