Hi Friends,

I know some might think it is a stupid question but I really want to know the need of EJB / Hiberante. If we can make connection object using JNDI / DriverManager and play with DB, why do we require EJB / Hibernate of if any suits ?

Hi,

It's just an abstraction layer, makes your life easy and avoids a lot of boiler plate code.

Looks like similar discussions have already happened on this forum itself.. for example this thread http://www.coderanch.com/t/216213/ORM/databases/Advantage-ORM-JDBC
Hope these might help.
