Hi Folks,

I was using Portlets for UI design which interfaced with WebServices in backend.
Could you brief how Portlets can be interfaced with Hibernate as backend?

Thanks in advance,

You can use Hibernate with Portlets like you do in a typical web application. If you are using Spring Portlet MVC (or Spring in the middle-tier), then it is quite simple to use Hibernate for persistence because of built-in support in Spring for integrating with Hibernate ORM.

You can find examples for using Hibernate and Spring JDBC in the source code of chapter 9 of Portlets in Action book:
