RALEIGH, CAROLINE DU NORD - —
is the full featured, high performance object/relational persistence and query service that popularized object/relational mapping for Java. Hibernate relieves developers from 95 percent of common data persistence related programming tasks, compared to manual coding with SQL and the JDBC API. Hibernate Core offers a powerful native data management and query API, and object/relational mapping with XML metadata. Hibernate Core requires JDK 1.3 or greater and works with any J2EE 1.4 or Java EE 5.0 application server.
Hibernate Annotations offers several packages of JDK 5.0 code annotations that developers can use to map classes, as a replacement or in addition to XML metadata. Hibernate Annotations supports standard Java Persistence object/relational mapping annotations, native Hibernate extension annotations, and declarative data integrity rule definition and validation with the Hibernate Validator framework. Hibernate Annotations requires JDK 5.0.
Hibernate EntityManager implements the Java Persistence programming interfaces, object lifecycle rules, and query options as defined by Java Specification Request 220 (EJB 3.0). Combined with Hibernate Annotations, this wrapper offers a complete Java Persistence provider on top of the mature and powerful Hibernate Core. The Hibernate Java Persistence provider is the default Java Persistence provider of the JBoss EJB 3.0 implementation. Additionally, it can be used inside any other Java EE 5.0 application server or standalone with JDK 5.0.
In addition to Java Persistence support and certification, new features in Hibernate 3.2 include:
- Transparent and customizable persistence context management in any Java environment;
- Highly scalable optimistic locking in a cluster with the new JBoss Cache provider;
- Declarative data filters for transparent definition of dynamic data views; and
- Enhanced query options and query language.
