Hibernate seems simple on the surface yet when you go beyond very simple use cases it can become much more complex. Intended for beginner to intermediate-level Hibernate developers, come see how to put Hibernate to effective use on your projects.
Hibernate is only part of an overall application architecture. This session shows ways to use Hibernate effectively including creating rich domain models, managing sessions and transactions, querying for objects, using interceptors and the event model, and handling lazy-loading. We'll also cover using Hibernate annotations instead of XML mapping files and the notion of application transactions.
