Hibernate's own documentation is quite good. There is Oreilly's "Hibernate in Action".

Little XML, Intermediate Java esp. equals and hashcode understanding and lastly (in my personal view): SQL.
You must have atleast intermediate level knowledge of SQL, joins etc. for any ORM framework for that matter to truly realize its advantages.

Mannings "Hibernate in Action" is good book but there is newer "Java Persistence with Hibernate" also Manning (revised version of Hibernate in Action) and there is also "Beginning Hibernate: From Novice to Professional".

Documentation is also very good but I prefer books but also look at documentation somtimes...

There is also another book written by Cameron McKenzie. It is a wonderful book on Hibernate.


SCJP 1.4, SCWCD 1.4 - Hints for you, SCBCD Hints - Demnachst, SCDJWS - Auch Demnachst

I have a bit of a discussion on which are the best books for learning Hibernate. In summary:

You really need Data Persistence with Hibernate by Bauer and King. It's the standard, and covers EVERYTHING at an advanced level, but in covering everything, the readability is understandably sacrificed. So, I always recommend a second or third book for actually learning Hibernate.

I wrote a book just on this topic, and it's called Hibernate Made Easy. Of course, I think the book is great, and I get great feedback, but then again, I am a little biased.

I also really recommend Harnessing Hibernate. It's well written and doesn't try to boil the ocean like Java Persistence with Hibernate. It's also a very recommended intermediate book on Hibernate that makes learning a bit easier.

I think those three books are really a great hat trick of learning!

I own all three books. If I were starting out I would buy them in the following order:

"Harnessing Hibernate" first to learn the basics. Then JPWH as an exhaustive reference. Finally Hibernate Made Easy to learn the corners of best practice. I use them all regularly.

Leave everything else on the shelf.
