Since JPA standardizes ORM frameworks for the Java platform, you can plug in
ORM products like JBoss Hibernate, Oracle TopLink, or BEA Kodo as the underlying
JPA “persistence provider” for your application.

JPA is a specification and Hibernate is one of the implementations of this specification. So yes you can use JPA and Hibernate together.
