I think that my book takes much of the 'struggle' out of the learning process.

You have to understand what a big task Gavin King and Christian Bauer had when putting together Data Persistence with Hibernate (DPWH). The book itself covers everything, from annotations to mapping files, to Spring to Seam. That's a tall order. Plus, it's intended to be a very technical book, and the writing style reflects that.

My book doesn't pretend to be a complete reference to Hibernate, as DPWH is. The book is designed to demonstrate and teach you the most important parts of designing and developing an application with Hibernate. Furthermore, rather than trying to cover mapping files and annotations, the book just focusses on using annotations. This makes the book more focussed, and as such, makes learning easier.

So, that is what I have tried to deliver to the Java community - a book that makes Hibernate as easy to learn as it is to use, with loads of examples that are easy to understand, and even easier to reproduce. And what's more, I find that when people have read through my book, they really understand how Hibernate works, and from there, they tend to get alot more out of DPWH, which really contains some great information.

Kindest regards,

-Cameron
