Can hibernate be used with EJBs. I know that there is support for JPA. But can we use other ORM with EJB3.

Yes, to answer your first question, but I'll move this into Object Relationship Mapping tool anyway.

Of course it can be used.

Only you cannot use Criteria API and Session. At least i didn't manage to get it from EntityManager.getDelegate()

Here is part of my persistence.xml file..

<persistence-unit name="StockEmuTest-ejbPU" transaction-type="JTA">
<property name="" value="update"/>
<property name="hibernate.show_sql" value="true"/>
<property name="hibernate.format_sql" value="true"/>
I agree. Here's the link:
