Hi All,

I'm very new to Hibernate. What's all the fuss about the Hibernate is going on? Is it a persistence layer between your application and database or something else :-(

To me it seems to be like a persistence layer between J2EE apps and databases that holds Java Object mappings to databases.

Also can it be considered as a replacement of EJBs ??

Thanks

Yes its a persistance layer specifically created to try to solve the old Object Relational Impedence Mismatch problem (i.e. using a relational model in conjunction with an object oriented one). You can use it with any Java app, its not restricted to J2EE. No it could not be considered a replacement for EJBs, being only a persistance layer. You could consider it a replacement for Entity Beans though.
