Persistence—the ability of data to outlive an instance of a program—is central to modern applications. Hibernate, the most popular provider of the Java Persistence standard, offers automatic and transparent object/relational mapping, making it a snap to work with SQL databases in Java applications.

Java Persistence with Hibernate, Second Edition explores Hibernate by developing an application that ties together hundreds of individual examples. It digs into the rich programming model of Hibernate, working through mappings, queries, fetching strategies, transactions, conversations, caching, and more and provides a well-illustrated discussion of best practices in database design and optimization techniques. This revised edition covers Hibernate 5 in detail along with the Java Persistence 2.1 standard (JSR 338) and all examples have been updated for the latest Hibernate and Java EE specification versions.

Purchase of the print book comes with an offer of a free PDF eBook from Manning. Also available is all code from the book.
