This online course on Java Hibernate teaches students the most popular object-relational mapping framework for Java environments. Object relational mapping in large enterprise applications is difficult. In this class, students learn object-relational mapping concepts and the various issues and options available in Java to address object persistence. With these fundamentals, the course then explores the basics of Hibernate object persistence and configuration. It also digs into the details of Hibernate mapping, queries, transactions, and concurrency. After taking this class, developers will be able to build faster, more flexible and easier to maintain application persistence layers and overcome impedance mismatch with the Hibernate framework. The participants will be able to achieve the followings at the end of the course: · Understand the challenges of mapping objects to relational databases · Learn the architecture of Hibernate · Know how to setup and configure Hibernate for a Java project · Learn to map Java classes and object associations to relational database tables with Hibernate mapping files · Study Hibernate’s strategies for mapping Java inheritance trees to relational database tables · Learn the Hibernate Query Language and Criteria for retrieving Java objects · Explore Hibernate’s Caching Architecture This class is designed for Java programmers with a need to understand the Hibernate framework and API. Students should have a good understanding of the Java programming language. A basic understanding of relational databases and SQL is very helpful.
