Very very basic. Very very easy to read!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hibernate Made Easy: Simplified Data Persistence with Hibernate and JPA (Java Persistence API) Annotations (Paperback)
I bought this book as I wanted the absolute simplest, easiest no-frills overview of Hibernate and JPA. It delivered. You can essentially skim through the whole book in half a day. You don't even need to code anything as it's all in front of you and the examples are very simple. At the end you will have a basic overview of Hibernate and the veils will have been drawn back. You'll also have a whole load of questions as well. This is the point at which you'll then order another "proper" Hibernate book as a heavy-duty reference. Let me make this very clear: for a professional programmer this book is useless as a reference. There is very little detail. Everything is very basic. But this is not a criticism as the book is not intended to be this. If you are intending to "look at Hibernate" and are not short of money I'd recommend you buy this and skim it first before buying a full blow reference book. It's sucks trying to get a high level overview from some chunky reference book.
