Hi

From a technical compatibility point of view,
What would be the damage to implement Hibernate on SAP Netweaver?

Cheers

Forgive my ignorance, but what is SAP Netweaver? Is it a platform you intend to run Hibernate on - in which case Hibernate is just a bunch of Java libraries so no big issue. Or is it a source of relational data? If it is you need to be able first of all to access it via JDBC (can you do this?) then you need a Hibernate dialect for it. Not a huge undertaking to write if there isn't one.

I have basic knowledge on SAP as as per my knowledge the SAP can be configured to connect to the DB. I don't know how we can put Hibernate (a bunch of Jar files as pointed out by Paul) to interface between SAP and the DB.
Also I don't think that JDBC is the adhoc mechanism to access DB in SAP. We do have a lot of wrappers for this in SAP.

What database does SAP use? Can you connect to that database with a JDBC driver? If the answer is 'yes', then I can't see any reason why you wouldn't be able to leverage the capabilities of Hibernate in your SAP project.
