I had a look at the contents, it looks more detailed and comprehensive. Is there any practical coding that will happen at the end of the course? Though the contents say this, they do not mention what sort of application will be developed during the practical coding. Could you please comment on this?

Hi Joe,

Hope I can help. The general idea is that you write code all the way through the video. We don't want it to be a passive experience, which is why we call ourselves Virtual Pair Programmers! A few of the chapters are "fly solo" chapters where we just give you a few clues and then let you do the work (but we do give a walkthrough).

So in short, it's not traditional lab style exercises, but more applied to the job at hand. Be sure that at the end of the course, you'll have running code on your computer that you will have written yourself (we do give you some of the basic files such as the boring XML config!)

Because of the nature of Hibernate, we don't build a big application, we sort of focus on a small object model and see how Hibernate works in detail, the idea being that you can then scale up from there. The final few chapters (how to integrate with Spring, EJB and Servlet based web applications) are a bit "bigger" but these are less practical - I give you a tour of a prebuilt architecture in that one.

I hope that helps, do ask if you need to know more!

Richard.
