Hello and welcome to the ranch !
It looks like pretty solid books where it compares using just jdbc as well as hibernate or spring. I saw some free html sample chapters, is every chapter of this book organized like sample code + some explanations ?
In your opinion is plain jdbc used nowadays? Because everyone are using hibernate (really popular), it's way easier to maintain for a bigger systems for sure. I heard, that when you have an app and use raspberry pi for it, it can't handle spring boot or things like that because it's too much People are using just jdbc there.

Hi Krystian,
it is all sample code + explanations.

To answer your question: sure, if it is a very simple project you can go with plain jdbc or a least a tiny wrapper around jdbc. But in most cases you will very likely end up with something like Hibernate and/or JooQ.

Cheers
Marco
