This has been discussed quite a lot in the Object Relational Mapping forum.

Hibernate is considered to be a lot more lightweight because you can use it to persist POJOs, whereas EJBs (specifically Entity if we are talking persistence) are a lot more heavyweight. This however is excpected to change with the release of EJB3.

Have a look through the posts in the ORM forum and you will see all these points discussed.


I agree. Here's the link:
