I am a curious java amateur who tries to use hibernate in home projects; nevertheless i'm using this new tec and enjoying, but sometimes probs arise and its hard to solve them.
One example: when writting a query, one can use:

But, what if instead of a string i've a char[]?

I just read from this forum: (and quote the author)
I think what we tried to do with Hibernate in Action was to really explain the principles underlying ORM technology and Hibernate, so that you can understand why things are designed and work in a certain way, and why we should use ORM in the first place. Then, we try to show how these things relate to the business of building actual applications, and really how to actually use Hibernate and ORM effectively in practice.

All said, do you think its worth having the book?

From the positive things written elsewhere in the forums (even before the current promotion), I'd say that it definitely sounds like the answer to your question is a yes. Never hurts to have something that goes more in-depth into a technology, moreso when written by the creators...
