Installation and Set Up of Hibernate
(Page 1 of 6 )

Installation and Setup

It continues to amaze me how many great, free, open source Javaô tools are out there. When I needed a lightweight object/relational mapping service for a JSP e-commerce project several years ago, I had to build my own. It evolved over the years, developed some cool and unique features, and weíve used it in a wide variety of different contexts. But now that Iíve discovered Hibernate, I expect that Iíll be using it on my next project instead of my own familiar system (toward which Iíll cheerfully admit bias). That should tell you how compelling it is!

weíve used it in a wide variety of different contexts. But now that Iíve discovered Hibernate, I expect that Iíll be using it on my next project instead of my own familiar system (toward which Iíll cheerfully admit bias). That should tell you how compelling it is!

In this chapter:

  • Getting an Ant Distribution
  • Getting the HSQLDB Database Engine
  • Getting Hibernate
  • Setting Up a Project Hierarchy

    Since youíre looking at this book, youíre interested in a powerful andconvenient way to bridge between the worlds of Java objects and relational databases. Hibernate fills that role very nicely, without being so big and complicated that learning it becomes a daunting challenge in itself. To demonstrate that, this chapter guides you to the point where you can play with Hibernate and see for yourself why itís so exciting.
