For simple use cases you may not need to write any SQL. I guess with Criteria you wouldn't need to write any for fairly complicated stuff, either, but Criteria aren't exactly trivial sometimes. But HQL is somewhat SQL like, and in order to understand what Hibernate is doing, knowing SQL is pretty much mandatory (at least in my opinion).

Hi David,

You would appreciate using Hibernate or any ORM framework, if you have knowledge of Object oriented principles and Persistence using SQL.

Er... I've been using Hibernate going on a half-decade now, and Torque before that, and a few others here and there. And to be honest, ORMs aren't my preferred solution, for a variety of reasons--OODBs are. For a different variety of reasons, that isn't always an option.
