Hibernate: A Developer’s Notebook by James Elliott
Hibernate: A Developer’s Notebook walks you through the ins and outs of using Hibernate, from installation and configuration, to complex associations and composite types. Two chapters explore ways to write sophisticated queries, which you can express either through a pure Java API, or with an SQL-inspired, but object-oriented, query language. Don’t let that intimidate you though: one of the biggest surprises in working with Hibernate is that for many of the common real-world application scenarios, you don’t need an explicit query at all.
Beginning Hibernate by Jeff Linwood, Dave Minter
