Mastering Hibernate is a four day in-depth course geared for experienced Java developers who need to understand what Hibernate is in terms of today’s systems and architectures, and how to apply Hibernate to persistence requirements in Java and J2EE applications.
Hibernate is a powerful enabler that addresses object/relational persistence in the Java world. Hibernate offers all the advantages of developing in Java plus a comprehensive suite of capabilities for mapping object-oriented features to the relational model. This course tells you what you need to know to design and build your own Hibernate-enabled applications. You’ll learn the details of the key Hibernate capabilities and how to leverage their strengths, with a special focus on using Hibernate with other technologies and frameworks. At the same time, you’ll be learning about the big picture of Hibernate and how to design applications to use Hibernate in a robust, efficient, secure, and maintainable fashion. If you want to deliver an application using Hibernate, you’ll find this course essential.
This an intermediate level Hibernate training course, designed for developers that need to understand how and when to use Hibernate in Java and J2EE applications.
This course provides coverage of Hibernate concepts and practices for interacting between Java and relational databases.
The goal of this course is to empower developers with the knowledge they need to design and implement Java application that effectively and transparently use Hibernate to manage data persistence. The areas addressed in this course range from data/class mapping and persisted object lifecycle and management to how Hibernate can be used in the Spring framework and in conjunction with the Java Persistence API.
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
- Explain how the issues associated with object persistence in a relational model are addressed by Hibernate
- Understand the relationships between SQL, Java, JDBC, Spring, Java Persistence API, EJB 3.0, and Hibernate
- Discuss the challenges to adopting Hibernate in the enterprise
- Write applications that take advantage of the Hibernate Persistence Manager
- Map Java classes to relational tables
- Capture both relational and inheritance associations in metadata using either XML or the Java 5 Annotations mechanism
- Create and use mappings between Java classes and relational databases
- Understand how identity and keys are handled in Hibernate.
- Understand the persistent object lifecycle and how that relates to transactions and concurrency
- Take advantage of Hibernate’s data filtering and interception
- Understand how to use Hibernate within the Spring framework
- Understand where Hibernate fits in the EJB 3.0 persistence world
Attendees should have Java development experience or have taken an introductory-level Java course.
