Could have been so much better,
This review is from: Java Persistence with Hibernate (Paperback)
I have found Hibernate In Action to be an indispensible guide when developing Hibernate persistence solutions, so I was eagerly awaiting the release of its successor.
Most developers will want to use standard JPA as much as possible for portability reasons, and only use Hibernate where absolutely necessary to use features not supported by JPA.
However this book fails to cleanly separate discussion of JPA from Hibernate, meaning that if you take this approach to using JPA you end up wading through large sections of the 800+ pages of this weighty tome.
I have to agree with Ganeshji and C. Updike - this lack of any clean separation of JPA and Hibernate makes it difficult to get useful information out of the book.
This is a shame, as the writing is of a high standard - unfortunately the content is very poorly organised.
