Spring and Hibernate in the Middle Tier
To today's JEE developer, there are two indispensable tools for creating applications; Spring and Hibernate. Together these two frameworks comprise one of the most powerful and often used stacks in the industry. While it is possible to do amazing things it's not always obvious how best to use them to maximize value. This session aims to correct that.
In this session, we'll start by addressing the basic design of an application using Spring and Hibernate. Once we've established some baseline best practices, we'll focus on how to best use Hibernate (both 2 and 3) in the persistence tier. We'll take a look at the use of Spring's HibernateTemplate and some new strategies in Spring 2.0. To finish with a look to the future, we'll explore use of JPA (Hibernate implementation) with Spring 2.0.
