Hi All,

Can some one suggest good beginners guide to Hibernate. Among the books Hibernate in Action , Hibernate Quickly & Hibernate Made Easy which one
would you guys recommend. I have seen couple of ranchers recommending Hibernate Made Easy. Though this book will cost me 2500 bucks
(Indian edition of this book is not available) , I don't mind paying up if contents of the book is up to date. All the 3 books was released and published in 2005.

Covers Hibernate 3.2 whereas previous editions cover Hibernate 2.x
