Hi Authors,

Firstly a warm welcome to Javaranch. Recently this is the second book on ORM that I see being newly launched in the last 2 months. It is in fact good to have as many books on ORM. My question is does the book talk about Persistence in general or does it talk about doing Persistence with Hibernate?

The answer to your question is 'Yes' and 'Yes'.

The first half of the book is concerned with just general concerns in the persistence layer. The second half looks at different frameworks, including a whole chapter on how Hibernate solves these concerns.

The idea of the book is to both give you a fish (chapters on specific frameworks covering a broad spectrum of types), and teach you to fish(chapters giving you the background to understand the primary issues associated with a given persistence mechanism, and then a set of questions to ask about each framework to see where it stacks up).

Ok then, Geoff

Thanks Authors. Does this book also mention anything about using Spring along with Hibernate?

We focus on the features of Hibernate Core and only really mention Spring in passing. Amazon is one site that has everything you are looking for:

http://www.amazon.com/Persistence-Enterprise-Guide-Technologies-developerWorks/dp/0131587560

Google Persistence in the Enterprise for others.

Ok then, Geoff

Indeed, Spring really gets into the application development side, and it can use any persistence framework, although Hibernate tends to go hand in hand. Concentrating on Persistence, you really wouldn't want to muddy the water too much with Spring.
