Re: Hibernate and Java objects



Hi John,

Hibernate is currently the best OpenSource O/R-Mapping framework.

The advanteges are:
- good documentation and community
- open source = free

disadvantes:
- Session in View problem: http://www.hibernate.org/43.html
- As with any O/R-Mapping tool you have to know a lot of databases and
have good knowledge of the O/R-Mapper if you wan't to avoid suprises.

Sometimes a Framework such as iBatis or simple JDBC will be more
performant an have less pittfalls than a big O/R-Mapper.

Regards, Simon
