hi all,
I am learning hibernate3. do I need to know EJB3 as well? Some books I have seen discussing EJB3 before discussing hibernate.

Thanks

Hibernate on it's own is an ORM framework. JPA which is part of EJB3 is a standard API for Java persistence. And hibernate has an implementation of JPA which you can use. Of course Hibernate has it's own native API that you can use without JPA, which is how hibernate being used from the beginning.
