Howdy Greenhorn!

Clearly, this is a bit of self-promotion, but many people have said that my book, Hibernate Made Easy, is both fun to read, and easy to understand. It goes from the basics, to the fundamentals, and then gets into advanced topics as well, such as the Criteria API, Advanced DAOs with Generics, and even two web based applications are created that wrap around Hibernate mappings and queries that you create in the book to show you how Hibernate gets used in practice.

Here's a little blurb on my website about both my book, and a few of the other books on the market that I believe are worth looking at as well.

The Best Books for Learning Hibernate and Object Relational Mapping

I'll vouch for Cameron's book. I have a lot of issues with its layout, but for getting started using Hibernate, I found it invaluable.

My suggestion is to start with Hibernate Quickly .This book covers all the important topics of hibernate and is easy to understand.

After that you can use Hibernate in action which is bible to hibernate

I have used Hibernate in Action, its good and briefly covers everything.

The best suggestion I would say is, download an application (An open source stuff from SF) and start building some new features to it or build something on top of it. That was the way I learned Hibernate.

Cheers
