Hi everybody!
I am learning hibernate. The basic object-relational mapping programs for inserting values in the mysql database etc I am doing successfully.Could you advise me on the topics which are most important in hibernate that I can zero in on and which will help me in job hunting.

I know struts framework in and out. But totally naive in spring framework. Will it be right from the job-prospects point of view to have a struts-hibernate combination? or should I learn spring framework as well.

Please advise.

Concentrate on the basics of Hibernate. Just using it, connecting to a database, doing basic queries and CRUD operations, and learn to do a mapping or two. Don't mix in Spring or Struts yet. Just learn it in isolation.

Then do the same with Spring. Learn it in isolation.

When you have a basic understanding of each, you'll see very clearly how they integrate together. A big problem is people trying to tackle it all at once, and even for me, a brilliant and exceptionally handsome computer professional ( ), I get confused when it all gets lumped together in a single tutorial.

Spring and Struts are nothing to do with Hibernate itself. Gaining an advanced undertanding of Hibernate itself is a good thing to do - it teaches you a lot about the concepts behind good database applications and the theory of relational databases. I'd do that, then you can consider later what other technologies you might like to integrated it with.

With regards to a tick list of what technologies make you most marketable having a look at the jobs advertised in your area is probably your best bet.

(As an aside, if you've been doing Java, servlets, JSP, and Struts for a year, "inside and out" strikes me as somewhat hyperbolic--be wary of how you advertise yourself!)

That being said, Spring and Hibernate integrate very nicely. But yes, a thorough understanding of Hibernate is the best starting point!
