We see a lot of web applications which stores and retrieves data in a database.Only in few of these we see hibernate being used.Should hibernate be used in each and every application that stores and retrieves data in a database or there are some situations where use of hibernate should be avoided.?
thanks

That's an odd question. Hibernate is popular, but it is only one of multiple solutions. Others include using a different ORM API, using no ORM, and using a No-SQL DB. Why do you think Hibernate should be used in all web apps?

thanks.

By using different ORM API, using no ORM, and using a No-SQL DB can we achieve what we can do using hibernate like below:

save(stateObj) and cities are also saved

or

retrieve cities using one to many / many to one mapping of state and city.

Those are implementation questions - if any particular DB or DB API doesn't support it those directly you can always implement those on top of the DB API. But let's take a step a back: what prompted the original question? Are you trying to select a DB API for a web app project? Or a DB?

If you already decided to use Hibernate, then this question is moot as far as this project is concerned, isn't it?
