Can anyone tell me what exactly these are and what are the differences between these?
Spring framework, Apache flex, Java Hibernate, Eclipse.

I know what some of these are but I am not sure about the specific uses for these since I am a newbie. Please tel me differences between each other.

Eclipse is an IDE. for writing code.
Java is a programming language
Hibernate is an Object Relational Mapping for mapping Java classes to database tables
Flex is a UI library for building client apps using Flash.
Spring Framework is tough to explain in a short reply. There are lots to Spring Framework many modules. In the core is a Dependency Injection framework.

"What is X" type question are best answered by typing "what is X" into a search engine. For Spring you may want to start at the main Spring web site, I'm sure it has tons of introductory material. For DI, there's Wikipedia: Dependency injection

For an ORM, you can use SQL, or each ORM might have another query language that uses Objects and properties rather than tables and fields. They also tend to have built in find by id type methods as well as some have object oriented classes to build up a query with Java code. Some also allow projects like QueryDSL to be used.

As was stated the Spring framework contains many projects covering a wide variety of things. You can read more about the projects here:
