I hope you have prior knowledge of sql queries and jdbc.
For beginners, I would highly recommend book:
Hibernate Made Easy by Cameron McKenzie

This is brilliant book to start hibernate. Initially you might have trouble with hibernate jar files as the stable version keep evolving.

Also to become advance hibernate profression, this link will help:

Would it perhaps make more sense to learn JPA than Hibernate?

hi everyone,
what about Beginning Hibernate of Apress publication, and Professional Hibernate?? These are also good to the Hibernate concepts right ?? I am following both the books at the moment. I am also new to Hibernate, in the learning phase.

With regards,

Truly. You would be better off learning the ORM specifications by picking up a JPA book. Pro EJB 3 is a good one to start with.

Welcome to CodeRanch, Chathura

Also EJB 3 In Action explains JPA with related concepts very well.
