Before I mainly used Hibernate in my project. I know that now Hibernate will become an implement to JPA. I need a book to refer to for studying. So I wonder which one is better.Give me reasons.Thank you.

Hi,

If you know Hibernate already and you've used it extensively, it's possible that you don't need much to switch to JPA. You could certainly get by skimming through a book - even the knowledge that Session becomes EntityManager, and SessionFactory becomes EntityManagerFactory will get you a lot of the way there! Especially if you've been using the annotations for your hibernate mapping - for many years now the Hibernate Annotations have actually been the JPA annotations.

So it's quite possible you don't need a book or a course. The "standard" book on JPA/Hibernate is "Java Persistence with Hibernate" from Manning (there's a second edition on the way) - it is a bit confusing the way they mix JPA and Hibernate (IMO), but this is probably all you would need to move from Hibernate to JPA.

If you only have basic experience in Hibernate, a video course offers a lot of advantages - it is much faster than working through a book, and with a proper practical exercise to work on, you get real experience. We've based the course on our live training that we've run for years, but we've been able to add at least two extra days worth of material, so there is a lot of real world experience in there as well. Books are great for reference, videos I think are better to get you moving quickly.

Do try the previews on our site to see for yourself!
