Hibernate takes an object oriented approach to data. You develop your applications by thinking about 'objects,' and the Hibernate framework can then transform the data in your objects into database tables and columns. It's not a new idea. Object-Relational Mapping (ORM) frameworks have been around for a long time. Hibernate happens to be very well designed and easy to work with.

Thanks for your reply - Cameron McKenzie.
I have started working on hibernate and got one confusion- I have fetched records from table using hibernate and updated one row of that table and again tried to fetch the same row from table in the same session but can't see the reflection on that row.
I came to know that hibernate use cache for holding all the data....do i need to refresh the session or cache to get the updated row....
