Hi! I have some questions regarding the "Hibernate in Action" book.

First, what is the main target public of the book, or does it cover the basics of Hibernate, from the beginning to some more advanced stuff?

Second, the book is a "how-to", but does it cover some "where-to" and "when-to"? (Like where do choose something inside Hibernate, when to choose other choices over hibernate, etc).

Third, what version of Hibernate does the book cover?

And last one: is it true that EJB 3.0 will use Hibernate as the OR plataform of choice over EEB and JDO?

Thanks for any reply!

Probably not. You can see the current thinking in the expert group by reading the Early Draft Review (chapter 6 onwards). From that draft, it looks like EJB 3.0 will not resemble Hibernate that much (obviously it has been inspired by Hibernate and the APIs have certain similarities but there's not a single reference to Hibernate.

Update:
Let me word that again. What I'm trying to say is that EJB 3.0 != Hibernate but EJB 3.0 is more Hibernate than EJB 2.0.

Another update:
This topic is being discussed in another thread.

As the authors state in the 1st chater that is exactly the aim of the book. The target of the book I think is the guys having to deal with entity persistence.


Second, the book is a "how-to", but does it cover some "where-to" and "when-to"? (Like where do choose something inside Hibernate, when to choose other choices over hibernate, etc).


These where-to, when-to are published all over the net. Even in some thread this day Gavin posted a list of when-nots. For better explanation I think I must leave the rest for Gavin and Christian.


Third, what version of Hibernate does the book cover?


Hibernate 2.
