This is really the book that the Hibernate industry needed. Loaded with independent examples, written in a funny and interactive manner, and covering all of the fundamentals you need to really understand Hibernate, and get the most out of your persistence layer.

This is far and away better than any other Hibernate learning guide on the market.

I bought this book to refresh my Hibernate skills since it was a few years since I'd last used it. This book was useful to get the basic syntax, annotations and to get clear about mappings, inheritance and queries. It's not a complete solution though - there is a lot lacking, such as query optimization, fetching strategies which are not covered.
But after reading this book, the online Hibernate documentation became more approachable.

Should be the first book for every Hibernate beginner. Full Stop

the sample code link is broken but you can get it from https://github.com/tygerpatch/Hibernate-Made-Easy

and the author should warn the reader, Hibernate is a very complex tech, they should not be carried away by this book

I bought "Hibernate in Action" earlier...but couldn't manage to read the book out of my office hours. And when I started reading the book..I realized there were not many examples and this book was not meant for lazy readers like me.

I was looking for a book that gives me a quick understanding of Hibernate with solid examples... and finally it turned out to be the book by Cameron McKenzie "Hibernate made easy"!

I get demotivated when I see bible like books..but this is a small and light weighted book :)

Author has re-presented the examples/topics covered in the earlier pages again when ever needed so one need not turn the pages back for reference.

Finished the first 4 chapters in just 5 hours or so... yet to read the left over chapters.

I ve been using hibernate in small scale projects by following recipies found on the internet and needed a book to study the technology in an organized manner. I must say that this book is very helpful in clearing out some dark sports that I wasnt aware of and to create more interest in the technology for further study. The writer is clear about the objectives, the style of the book from page one. In every chapter there are objectives in each page and these objectives are covered. Another good part is that the book is small and very easy to follow. This book should be in every hibernate's developer arsenal. The missing 1 star is only for the price of the book which I believe is high. Even so ..its worth it.

What I really like about this book is how easy it is to get through. It is written like a tech book for a lay man. The language used almost makes it seem like the author knows you and is addressing you in a very casual way. I got this book as an intro to hibernate, and it has served me well. I would highly recommend this book for someone starting out in the world of hibernate or persistence.

The book will get you through learning Hibernate with JPA which is why you are considering the book in the first place. But man, it is dull. There's so much unnecessary text, api's without explanations, bad jokes, catch ups on what have been done so far and catch up on the catch ups so you almost fall asleep. This book would have been perfect if it was cut down to 10 percent of the pages.

I had actually used Hibernate some 5 years ago, but recently had to come back to it and all I've previously learnt was all but forgotten. Firstly I purchased Java Persistence with Hibernate and found the book a nightmare to get to grips with it, with little structure or clarity I then decided to buy Camerons book on the basis of the Amazon reviews.

I have to say I found it a very easy read, in fact at the start it was almost too easy but I still found myself finally correcting previous misconceptions, and I found the order the topics very well presented, I read the book cover to cover over the cause of a couple of days. I do have a few criticisms though, some points are laboured over too much and there are alot of pages containing essentially the same code samples so although the book is 430 pages long it only needs to be about 300 pages, also I think he could have covered more aspects of Hibernate including some important omissions such as mapping collections. For these reasons the cost of £35 is IMO too expensive the author states the coever price is high because he has to self publish and Amazon take a large cut but no cut is being taken by the publisher so I'm not sure this is a valid argument.
