I have been working in core Java for last 8 years. Apart from this long back I have worked on JavaScript, and JSP. Now most of the companies demand knowledge of technologies like hibernate, spring etc. Hence, I need to build my expertise in latest web technologies. I can read books to get knowledge of the technology. But working on these technologies will give more knowledge and experience. How to achieve this in my free time? Are there any open source projects which I can contribute to? Or are there any other ideas/suggestions by which I can build my expertise and showcase the same in my resume?

First, Hibernate isn't a web technology. It is a back end database technology. Spring has a mix of front end and back end technologies. And JavaScript has changed a lot since you last used it.

Before looking at something to contribute to, start reading up and practicing with the technologies. And by practicing, I mean to build an app for yourself. It's up to you if it does anything useful.

Thanks.
I know that wealth of information is available regarding hibernate, springs, and JavaScript in web. But high chances are that I may not find right and comprehensive source.
Which books and websites do you recommend to learn these technologies?

Spring, not "springs".

I believe that Spring in Action is widely considered one of the better resources for Spring.

For Hibernate, while I personally had a lot of issues with Hibernate Made Easy, it is the book that made Hibernate make the most sense to me.
