Can anyone please tell me a good book on hibernate 3, that can teach me the topic without the use of any IDE like ant?

It would be highly appreciated if anyone can tell me some tutorial on net, which can teach me to use the technology, without ant...as on the site hibernate.org, they have included all tutorials using ant....

Thaks in advance.

Ant isn't an IDE.

Why don't you want to use Ant? In any case, Ant's just a build mechanism--you don't have to use it if you don't want to.

I think ant is going to flatten my learning curve for using hibernate...as i will have two things to focus upon...

I am little weak in terms like maven and ant, they don't speak to me much, which is why i fear them...

Is there really a necessity to use ant as the build mechanism for hibernate? What ACTUAL good will it do?
I want to know....if it is worth the effort, i will try to learn to use ant too....

If you already have the Ant build file just type "ant". Not that difficult.

You don't actually have to "learn" Ant. I don't think the Hibernate tutorials or books would expect you to write Ant build scripts. All you have to do is trigger a ant command.

Consider this - you write all the Java code for your hibernate application. And now you have to package that code (for example in a .jar file), so that it's actually deployable or usable as a program. How do you do that? Using IDE is one option. But ideally builds tools are meant for these activities. Ant and Maven are just a few of those tools you can choose from.

Now, that I see, I should use ant as a preferred strategy or recommended service, can you tell me some place(book, on-line tutorial) to start with, which can tell a dummy like me to use ant and hibernate together...
