Hi guys,

Basically, I have built some simple java application with hibernate! now, i want to learn it properly like understanding the concepts really good.
Which book or resources do you recommend? I bought Java persistence with hibernate, but i saw some bad customers review for that book which put me off reading it!!

thank you,

Best books are -
1. hibernate_reference
2. Manning_-_Hibernate_In_Action

you directly go to hibernate.org and get the complete reference.

I am not sure, although the authors are the same. Btw, Gavin King is one of the founder/authors of Hibernate. So he is pretty much the authority for Hibernate. At-least i found the book quite good.

I always tried to read the official documentation when i face problems! but I get the feeling that it is for reference more than learning! maybe i am wrong!!
I think i will try the hibernate in action as all people are recommending it.
Thanks so much for helping
