This book is written for users experienced in using Java with databases but inexperienced in the use of the open source, lightweight Hibernate, the most popular de-facto object-relational mapping and database-oriented application development framework. The book has plentiful examples and handy reference sections, including a comprehensive reference for Hibernate O/R mapping strategies. Beginning Hibernate 3 is packed with brand-new information on the latest release of the Hibernate persistence layer and provides a clear introduction to the de facto standard for object relational persistence in Java. Readers will get started right away with building transaction-based engines and applications.
Beginning Hibernate, Second Edition is ideal if you’re experienced in Java with databases (the traditional, or “connected,” approach), but new to open-source, lightweight Hibernate—the de facto object-relational mapping and database-oriented application development framework. This book packs in information about the release of the Hibernate 3.5 persistence layer and provides a clear introduction to the current standard for object-relational persistence in Java. And since the book keeps its focus on Hibernate without wasting time on nonessential third-party tools, you’ll be able to immediately start building transaction-based engines and applications. Experienced authors Dave Minter and Jeff Linwood provide more in-depth examples than any other book for Hibernate beginners. The authors also present material in a lively, example-based manner—not a dry, theoretical, hard-to-read fashion. What you’ll learn How to build enterprise Java-based transaction-type applications that access complex data with Hibernate, including Software as a Service (SaaS) How to work with Hibernate 3.5 Where to integrate into the persistence lifecycle, including cloud application implications How to map using annotations, Hibernate XML files, and more How to search and query with the new version of Hibernate When to integrate with Spring, Grails, and more Who this book is for This book is for Java developers who want to learn about Hibernate. Table of Contents An Introduction to Hibernate Integrating and Configuring Hibernate Building a Simple Application The Persistence Life Cycle An Overview of Mapping Mapping with Annotations Creating Mappings with Hibernate XML Files Using the Session Searches and Queries Advanced Queries Using Criteria Filtering the Results of Searches Case Study — Using Hibernate with an Existing Database

Migrating Java, Spring, Hibernate and Maven Developers to Adobe Flex
Author: Filippo di Pisa
Over the past few years, the now-open source Adobe Flex framework has been adopted by the Java community as the preferred framework for Java rich Internet applications (RIAs) using Flash for the presentation layer. Flex helps Java developers to build and maintain expressive web/desktop applications that deploy consistently on all major browsers, desktops, and operating systems. Beginning Java and Flex describes new, simpler, and faster ways to develop enterprise RIAs. This book is not only for Java or Flex developers, but also for all web developers who want to increase their productivity and the quality of their development. The aim of the book is to teach the new frontier of web development using open source, agile, lightweight Java frameworks with Flex. Java lightweight framework programming helps Flex developers create dynamic-looking enterprise applications. Flex and Java are becoming very popular for both business and interactive applications. What you’ll learn What Adobe Flex is and how to use it in your Java development of the presentation tier or rich clients How to use Spring, Hibernate, and/or Maven with Flex How to use Flex and Java to create rich Internet applications and/or clients How to create Flash-based/enabled business applications How to write more stable Java-based Flex applications and reusable code How to create some Flash-based game applications Who this book is for This book is for Java developers who want to get into Flex, Spring, Hibernate, and/or Maven, and for all Flex developers who want to create projects with the most frequently used Java frameworks. Also, this book could be interesting for most other web developers because Java/Flex, once learned, will increase their productivity and the quality of their development.

Mammalian hibernation is commonly thought of as something completely out of the ordinary, a "unique and unorthodox state." The present book takes the opposite view. It argues that the physiological achievements of hibernators do not deEend on special mechanisms but on special use of ordinary mechanisms. It is precisely this that makes the hibernators important. If the hibernators de pend on some unique physiological principle their study is that of a biological curio. But if they are using basic mammalian systems in a quantitatively extreme way, then they are a naturally occurring preparation of enormous potential. Hibernation involves every aspect of the animal's biology from fat metabo lism to behavior, from thermoregulation to dental caries; every system in the body is affected in some way or other by hibernation. A comprehensive account of hibernation would be almost coextensive with an account of the whole of mammalian biology. The present book does not attempt to describe everything that has been discovered about hibernation. Excellent coverage for that already exists in the proceedings of three recent symposia and in the other major source materials listed on page 233. There is in fact an enormous amount of information already available. But there is a difference between information and understanding. Despite the increasing volume of research and growing interest in mammalian hibernation, there is little appreciation of the essential characteristics of the phenomena. The pieces of the puzzle lie scattered.
A comprehensive Java guide, with samples, exercises, casestudies, and step-by-step instruction Beginning Java Programming: The Object Oriented Approachis a straightforward resource for getting started with one of theworld's most enduringly popular programming languages. Based onclasses taught by the authors, the book starts with the basics andgradually builds into more advanced concepts. The approach utilizesan integrated development environment that allows readers toimmediately apply what they learn, and includes step-by-stepinstruction with plenty of sample programs. Each chapter containsexercises based on real-world business and educational scenarios,and the final chapter uses case studies to combine several conceptsand put readers' new skills to the test. Beginning Java Programming: The Object Oriented Approachprovides both the information and the tools beginners need todevelop Java skills, from the general concepts of object-orientedprogramming. Learn to: Understand the Java language and object-oriented conceptimplementation Use Java to access and manipulate external data Make applications accessible to users with GUIs Streamline workflow with object-oriented patterns The book is geared for those who want to use Java in an appliedenvironment while learning at the same time. Useful as either acourse text or a stand-alone self-study program, Beginning JavaProgramming is a thorough, comprehensive guide.
