Can Hibernate and Spring framework be used for large sized applications?
What I presume is they are a good choice for a medium sized application.

More over how stable are they?

thanks

The size of the application is not the only non-functional criteria to take into account to choice between J2EE "classical model" and Spring with Hibernate approach. You have to take into account the perenity, environment (knowledge of the team, current tools), support, ...
You have to manage the risk to adopt one approch or the other, and perhaps to realize a Proof of Concept (short duration project)

Unfortunately, the most influential criteria is 'political' like good relationship between an organization and product company, ...

can you explain what is perenity??
I dont know about the support for Hibernate. I think as it is a opensource project, support is limited.

I agree that the relation between organization and product company plays major role in deciding upon one technology.
Still I would require the things that are to be considered while choosing Hibernate.

thanks

Perenity = duration of the support of the application
Large scale develop. = big investisment -> long term application
-> we have to take care about the stability of integrated products or technology.
From one aspect, the use of a standard (EJB is a Sun "oriented" standard) is good for stability but a "non-intrusive" technology like Spring or Hibernate is also a garantee of stability ....

Well Hibernate is part of the JBoss Group now, so professional support contracts are available. We have a contract with them, and so far support has been both timely and the quality of responses has been reasonably high.
