Hi,

i have just started using hibernate. While i a being able to perform some tasks i find that there are several things that are not clear to me.(Blame it on my poor reception).
i am finding this transition to hibernate rather complicated. i am sure there are books/tutorials that would help me in this regard.
It would be great if someone could help me find a good tutorial/book with examples that can help explain these topics.



Thanks,
Som

Hibernate in Action
The online reference guide found here is also good.

If you are not laughing at yourself, then you just didn't get the joke.

I have consulted the documentation already.
However i am looking for a tutorial that sites some examples of the mapping strategies,caching and associations. i guess that would really help me.

Thanks Arun for your time!

try roseindia. They have some excellent examples.
Did you take a look at the examples in the online reference guide I posted. Chapter 21. I found them very easy.
Perhaps, to really appreciate and internalize you need to read some basic SQL stuff and think how do you actually use your query results in your business code.

1. Learn little SQL basics, joins, unions, group by, how to minize query results, define fetch sizes etc., How do you actually obtain children. Have example tables like parent, child and foreign key in child table.
2. Start off with simple employee-manager relationship.
3. Learn some normalization. learn the examples.

These should ease things up. Do let us know how you are progressing.
