Hi Joel Murach,
I want to know how this book is different from other JEE books . Is it just the content or the teaching methodologies? Why have you included JPA in the book and why not hibernate ?

Thank you
Shiva

You do realize that Hibernate is a JPA implementation, right?

Hi Shiva,

I think our book differs from other Java books mainly in the teaching methodology. I think I have described our methodology in some of the other posts that I have made this week, so you can troll through those if you're interested. But the best way to see how our teaching methodology works is to try one of our books!

As Bear pointed out, Hibernate is an implementation of the JPA specification. The examples we present in the book use the EclipseLink implementation of JPA, but the skills described in this book should work very similarly for the Hibernate implementation.

Thanks!

Joel

Thanks for the replies. ya sure Joel I would like the read your book . I have used hibernate as an ORM tool in my project.For dealing with it we need a configuration file,mapping files, POJO classes and write appropriate code in our DAO layer . Is the process similar with JPA or EclipseLink ?

Thank you,
Shiva

Hi Shiva,

Yes, the process is similar with EclipseLink, but I think it might be even easier. You need a configuration file, POJO classes, and appropriate code in the DAO layer. You don't need mapping files as the mapping is controlled by annotations that are added to the POJO classes. Thanks!

Joel
