Since we're on the topic, here are my hibernate book suggestions. I may have suggested these before:

The best book to get you working with Hibernate in a hurry:

Hibernate Made Easy: Simplified Data Persistence with Hibernate and JPA Annotations

Java Persistence with Hibernate

Not to be confused with Hibernat In Action by the same two authors:

Hibernate in Action by Christian Bauer, Gavin King

Another book that reads well is Beginning Hibernate:

Beginning Hibernate

And if you're a nature lover, you might be interested in why actual animals hibernate:

Why Animals Hibernate by Patricia J. Murphy

Okay, bad joke.

Hi Cameron !
I'm wondering why the first book title you give is "Hibernate made easy" ? No idea?

Any way i saw a post of yours about Hibernate books and i appreciated your honesty, i'm in need of good hibernate books, and i was willing to buy the JPWH one, but i think i'll buy yours too. As you said on the Hibernate forum, I guess having both of them is a very good option.

Whatever you do, buy java persistence with hibernate, but BEWARE! the book's been bloated with JPA spec (and I don't think it even covers JPA 2.0), I personally think Hibernate in Action (the old edition) was sweet, short, to the point ... But still Java Persistence with Hibernate is authoritative reference on Hibernate and JPA spec. (written by Hibernate committers and developers themselves).

I'd be interested in seeing Harnessing Hibernate (Oreilly Publications).

hi, I've already read books about Hibernate and Spring individually. Between them, I think "Java Persistence with Hibernate" and "Professional Java Development with the Spring Framework" are good books. But recently I'm reading a recent published book about Spring and Hibernate, Spring Persistence with Hibernate; this book explains Hibernate very nice, I learned many complicated aspects of Hibernate by this book. I haven't read the Spring part of the book, but it seems very excellent as well. Here is the link for that book Spring Persistence with Hibernate

If you have to work directly with Hibernate, I recommend 'Java Persistence with Hibernate'.
I love it. Don't miss the polymorphic DAO example.
Make sure it's the 2nd edition.

If you have a choice, use JPA instead of Hibernate. It's the new standard, based on lessons
from Hibernate. 'EJB3 in action' is a good book, and Reza Rahman is a Generally Nice Guy
answering newbie questions on the Manning web forum. Btw: go directly to JPA2; it has
some really useful stuff.

Same with Spring, which probably will be obsoleted by the new version of JEE;
check it out!
