SpringSource's Hibernate with Spring Workshop

Topics covered at HIBERNATE-01-03

Dates coming soon

In this 3-day Spring Hibernate training you will learn how to create effective data-driven Spring applications with Hibernate.

The training shows the use of both XML and annotation based configuration of both Spring and Hibernate. Through our training, you benefit from the wide experience and architectural expertise of our team. We bring that experience to you in a highly interactive, intensely hands-on setting.

Learn how to:

  • Configure Hibernate in the context of a Spring application
  • Create efficient object/relational mappings with Hibernate
  • Leverage the Spring Framework to facilitate Hibernate session, transaction and exception management
  • Use Hibernate with Spring and understand fundamental architectural issues. Know how and when to use parts of the Spring Framework
