Hibernate in Action is a good book. Is written by some of the core commiters to Hibernate.

Hibernate Made Easy is probably the best book you can find for getting started quickly with Hibernate and learning the basics properly and thoroughly. However, being the author, I might be a bit biased.

The Hibernate book by Gavin King is pretty much the reference guide. You need that one, but it's very comprehensive, which makes learning a bit of a challenge. Gavin's book as a reference, and Hiberante Made Easy to give you a jump start, is a pretty powerful combination.

Check out my signature links for some free tutorials on working with Hiberante.

Hi,

There are nice reviews of book 'Hibernate Made Easy' on the amazon website.

Is Indian Edition of this book also available? If yes, then by which publisher it is available in India?
Thanks in advance.
