The book is currently only available in print format. I'm sure you'll find the tactile experience of leafing through the book to be very enjoyable!

Any chance we will see an updated version of this book for Hibernate 3?

It certainly covers Hibernate 3! I believe it's 3.2.3 that it covers. A new version covering JPA 2.0 and Hibernate 3.5 is a few months away.

Ok, just checking because Amazon product description indicates book was last printed version of April 2008, well before Hibernate 3.

And then user comment as of Aug 2010 states - "The BAD, unfortunatly with newer June 2010 hibernate3 and eclipse 3.6 releases, your really going to suffer a painful learning curve if you try the code examples in the book to work with the latest of these products. Additionally, a download site for the code would be nice. "

So want to make sure before I buy that the code examples in the book cover Hibernate 3.

Can you comment on when the book was last updated, that is, if I order from Amazon, what print date do I get.

I understand you supply the code files via email. Also there were some amazon comments indicating the need to separate code by chapters and use Eclipse libraries to make the task of running the code easier. Has the latest code been reorganized or updated in a manner that does make it easier to get going with the examples?

Also $48 for a book even technical is pretty high, not that this book is not worth that price, but it seems offering an eBook version you would be able to lower the cost of the book by $10 and I could then read it on the train during my commute instead of lugging around a book and a laptop. I love being able to have all my technical books at reference on my laptop. Please give this consideration.
