How does this book compare to others on the market these days.

Best regards,

how does this book help someone with some basic knowledge in ORM and Hibernate but not in an advanced level to quickly gain the necessary skills to use hibernate efficiently?
also how does this compare with Hibernate in Action

Thanks

Does "Hibernate Quickly" cover Hibernate 3?... and does it include coverage of the Hibernate Tools?

Thanks

How does this book compare specifically with "Hibernate in Action". I currently have that book in my library but haven't started reading it yet.

"Hibernate Quickly" is a companion volume to "Hibernate in Action". It's designed to present the Hibernate basics and cover the supporting tools and frameworks, like XDoclet, web apps, Spring and unit testing.

Unfortunately, the Hibernate tools for Eclipse weren't available when the book went to print. We weren't able to include them in the book.

I would say its more of a 'tutorial' book than Hibernate In Action. We left out discussions of more advanced features in order to devote more space to step by step instruction.

The book is pretty new so we don't have any reviews yet. We (the authors) think it's pretty good.

Billy,

I think the number examples are one of the main selling point. We try to incrementally build code samples that introduce new concepts. Our core focus is teaching folks that are new to hibernate, while putting in enough advanced stuff for folks who have been around it a while (mostly integration and reference-y type material).
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
