What, me post to this forum just for a chance to win a book


What does your book offer that I don't already know if I'm using Spring and Hibernate in my apps already?

There is no emoticon for what I am feeling!

See for a brief summary of what this book is about.

Even if you use Spring and Hibernate there are many things that I would hope you find useful:
* The discussion of the various design options for business logic organization and encapsulate, database access and concurrency: their benefits, drawbacks and when to use them.
* Developing a rich domain model using test-driven development techniques.
* Designing Spring-based DAOs for testability
* Testing strategies for an ORM-based persistent layer including how to speed up tests by testing as much as you can without a database
* Comparison of EJB 3 with Spring/Hibernate/JDO
* Using iBATIS for database access
* The discussion of database concurrency options including optimistic offline locking and pessimistic offline locking.

I hope this soundsinteresting? Checkout the TOC at
