Hibernate has lots of advantages of straight JDBC (many extra features - there might be something very useful - see http://www.hibernate.org/21.html). It also has disadvantages: ask any JDO product vendor, they have very long lists!


There's a comparison of the various Java persistence technology options here (including JDBC and Hibernate):

CodeFutures has long supported JDBC as a Java persistence technology - and today is officially launching support for Hibernate (see http://www.codefutures.com/hibernate-java-persistence/ ). So we're fairly neutral about which of the technologies you use.

However, there are other non-technical issues that you or your project manager/sponsor need to consider (skills, legal issues, risk, etc). You can read more here:
