If you use Hibernate, or want to learn more about it, this is probably a good read. If you just had lunch, you might want to get a cup of coffee or tea (preferably caffeinated), ORM can be a pretty dry topic. Maybe I just need one since I just got back from lunch (and the closing on our Morrison house). My contract is ending soon (this has been confirmed) and I have nothing to do but cleaning up Javadocs - which is even drier than ORM.
TheServerSide is pleased to announce
that it will be hosting a public review process for 'Hibernate In
Action' (Manning), by Christian Bauer and Gavin King. The first
chapter, 'Understanding object/relational persistence', introduces
object/relational mapping (ORM) and compares it to other persistence
mechanisms, such as self-made persistence layers and object databases.
