Does Hibernate in Action cover integration with Spring and/or XDoclet? I have used hibernate with these tools very briefly and have not been able to find answers to certain questions. (i.e. Why do I get errors when I try to use getHibernateTemplate even though I am extending the correct interface?).
IMHO there are 2 kinds of integrations involved here: one from the perspective of developing (as it is for the integration of Hibernate and XDoclet, Ant, Middlegen, AndroMDA, etc) - and this is included in the book (as I understand it from Christian, and a review review. On the other hand it is the integration of Hibernate in some other frameworks. For this kind of info I would take a look into the documentation of that framework. (in fact afaik Spring describes very well in the reference doc the integration with Hibernate, and I think the same is done in J2EE development without EJB book).
