Hi All,

I am trying to get started with learning Hibernate. I am slightly intimidated with the technology and am overwhelmed with it.

But this time I have resolved to master it.

So I started with Java Persistence with Hibernate Second Edition (Christine Bauer) and my resolve went downhill as I was not able to get the examples to run properly. There were no setup instructions to guide me in doing the initial setup.

The next best book I came across was Hibernate Made Easy: Simplified Data Persistence with Hibernate and JPA (Java Persistence API) Annotations. This is an awesome book, and i totally love it. But the downside is, It was written 8 years and will not be applicable to the new versions of Hibernate.

So I am back on the search for a good book for Hibernate.

Can any body recommend some.

Thank you!

What about reading/using the Hibernate ORM documentation itself? It's probably the most up-to-date resource you'll find. And you have different tutorials and a user guide. Here you'll find the documentation for Hibernate ORM 4.3.

And I assume if you google for "hibernate book" you'll have plenty of results and you can look for a very recent book which suits your needs the best.

I think starting with Documentation does not suite everyone. What I usually do , is go on Amazon.com and search for Subject and then see suggestions and ratings to decide which book to pick it up.

I heard about "Hibernate in Action" although did not read it. Good Luck !!!
