    • An update of Beginning Hibernate. See sell likes but little retail/trade potential.
    • Most of revenue however expected from books as a service databases, similar to but lesser than Spring books.
    • Hibernate tech meme is #55 in Safari Search terms. Manning's Java Persistence with Hibernate book is the #336 in Safari. That's the only Hibernate book in the top 500 in Safari current. In SpringerLink, Beginning Hibernate is ranked # 16115. As Hibernate is open source Java, it should be relevant enough in Books24x7, too. And, Java is near the top list of top 100 key memes in Safari overall, too.
    • Hibernate is one of two leading Java persistence engines/frameworks/APIs in Java tech and book market. Hibernate is the most practical framework while JPA is more raw spec/implementation.

Beginning Hibernate, Third Edition is ideal if you’re experienced in Java with databases (the traditional, or "connected," approach), but new to open-source, lightweight Hibernate, a leading object-relational mapping and database-oriented application development framework.

This book packs in information about the release of the Hibernate 4.x 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 Joseph Ottinger with 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.
