Wake up from hibernation

Jul 15

Hibernate is a powerful, ultra-high performance object/relational persistence and query service for Java. Hibernate lets you develop persistent objects following common Java idiom - including association, inheritance, polymorphism, composition and the Java collections framework. Extremely fine-grained, richly typed object models are possible. The Hibernate Query Language, designed as a "minimal" object-oriented extension to SQL, provides an elegant bridge between the object and relational worlds. Hibernate is now the most popular ORM solution for Java.

Here is a well documented walkthrough for anyone wishing to use Hibernate for the first time. There is also a quickstart guide at the hibernate website, and another at ideoplex.com
