Hi All

I am new to hibernate. So, I just start learning the hibernate, I chose to learn from Hibernate in Action book, but after reading three chapter of this book, I found that it is much theoritcal, and it does not expain its own example cavet application in more details with the concept of hibernate. It may be a good book but Please suggest me a Hibernate book which is more parctical and explain the concept of hibernate with example.

I need to developed my parctical skill of hibernate so that I can develop the projects. Rightnow I can create a hibernate program with JBoss tool.

ocjp 6 — Feeding a person with food is a great thing in this world. Feeding the same person by transferring the knowledge is far more better thing. The reason is the amount of satisfaction which we get through food is of only one minute or two. But the satisfaction which we can get through the knowledge is of life long.

The book already suggested " Hibernate Made Easy" is a good book to start with. It may be s little dated. While I agree that it's a little expensive, you can search if the author/publisher has an electronic copy for sale for less.
