Could someone highlight the main dfferences between Hibernate and Ibatis, and scenarios where they would be preferred over each other.

Well, and take this with a grain of salt.

Ibatis is a nice tool to use for those not so big databases that you just want to create a few queries to and map those queries to objects. However, if you have a bigger database then Hibernate will give you much more features and control, which can be a blessing, but also a bigger learning curve.

Personally, I prefer Hibernate. But that is just my opinion and preference.
