A Developer’s Notebook shows you how to use Hibernate to automate persistence: you write natural Java objects and some simple configuration files, and Hibernate automates all the interaction between your objects and the database. You don‘t even need to know the database is there, and you can change from one database to another simpl
y by changing a few statements in a configuration file. If you’ve needed to add a database backend to your application, don‘t put it off. It’s much more fun than it used to be, and Hibernate: A Developer‘s Notebook shows you why.
