What is difference between EJB3 and Hibernate Annotations? I have learned EJB3. Now what else I will have to learn to know hibernate annotations?

Hibernate provides a variety of extensions, so sometimes, like with inheritance mapping, to simplify your mappings, you can add in a Hibernate specific mapping.

Most implementations I have used have leveraged Hiberante as the persistence provider and used JPA annotations without using anything Hibernate specific.
