Database experts may enjoy fiddling with SQL but you don't have to the rest of the application is the fun part. And even database experts dread the tedious plumbing and typographical spaghetti needed to put their SQL into a Java program. Hibernate: A Developers Notebook shows you how to use Hibernate to automate persistence: you write natural Java objects and some simple configuration files and Hibernate automates all the interaction between your objects and the database. You don't even need to know the database is there and you can change from one database to another simply by changing a few statements in a configuration file. Hibernate: A Developer's Notebook walks you through the ins and outs of using Hibernate, from installation and configuration, to complex associations and composite types. Two chapters explore ways to write sophisticated queries, which you can express either through a pure Java API or with an SQL-inspired but object-oriented, query language. Don't let that intimidate you though: one of the biggest surprises in working with Hibernate is that for many of the common real-world application scenarios, you don't need an explicit query at all. If you've needed to add a database back-end to your application, don't put it off. It's much more fun than it used to be and Hibernate: A Developer's Notebook shows you why.
