I have a requirement of converting a client server app to a j2ee app. The client would be created using eclipse RCP and spring for mid tier service layer and hibernate for persistence layer. does anyone have any experience of using these technologies in their projects? any help would be appreciated eg. reference books, forums etc

The Spring and Hibernate project sites both have very good documentation. That's the best place to start.

I'm curious, if you don't mind sharing, why the decision was made to switch to move away from a browser based solution.

I wasn't the decision maker, but guess the main reason to move to RCP was because this is a conversion project from VB client to java and using RCP it would be possible to translate thick clients written in VB. Spring and Hibernate replace the mid tier currently written in C++. Does this make sense to you Marc?

So you have a VB project talking to some COM written in C.
Browser round tripping and UI not good enough.

Have a look at this http://coolharbor.100free.com/index.htm
Its a POJO Application Server

What that means is that if you convert the above to all work in a normal Java program, you can put the application on line.

POJO Application Servers deliver the client, so you can make it jump out of a web page as well if you want... the Java.
