I have to learn hibernate.


Calm down. Don't get too excited.

Can some one tell me the best book to learn hibernate?


Hibernate Quickly
and
Hibernate in Action

Hibernate Quickly is a very good introduction to Hibernate. Hibernate in Action is a bit dated (it's pre-Hibernate 3), but it's very thorough and is a good reference book.

Hibernate In Action is the best book, even though it currently does not cover Hibernate 3.0, all the information that you will learn is just as important in 3.0

I started by reading the entire Hibernate 3 docs. Then doing the Hibernate in Action demo. Then just testing things out and writing code/mappings.

Then reading the offical and these forums whenever possible. Someone elses problem could always be my own.

Most problems you get you can figure out from the docs or reading forums. The more in depth stuff you are going to have to go through source code and their Jira issues.

There are lots of best practices you can learn from the Hibernate Caveat Emptor example and the Hibernate Wiki pages are nice.
