Could you advise me a good book which give me an good overview of ORM and Hibernate?

I think Hibernate could help me to improve my coding speed, because until now I have to write my database code in SQL.

Can make Hibernate your code database independant?

Hi Remko.

You could try Hibernate in Action. An OR mapping is more than just generating SQL statements, it gives you an object-oriented perspective of your database (so you can code more "naturally").

Thanks for your information. I'll give the book a try.

The code examples are also a great help, but first a want to know more over Hibernate before I start coding.

I'm finding Beginning Hibernate: From Novice to Professional very useful. Did anyone give it a try?

I've started with Hibernate in action, but I've not had much time to really start, because I've a lot of work to do and have to prepare myself for an ITIL-exam.

After that I will give Hibernate a good chance
I agree. Here's the link:
