Hibernate with JPA

If Java is used for enterprise class applications, accessing relational data in an effective way, the use of a good persistence framework is a very important. The Hibernate framework offers a complete object-relational mapping solution to this end. HIbernate makes use of the standard Java Persistence Architecture (JPA) of the Java EE platform.

The purpose of this course is to show the participant how a Java application can be mapped to a relational database schema with the use of the Hibernate framework combined with JPA.


No public sessions are currently scheduled. We will be pleased to set up an on-site course or to schedule an extra public session (in case of a sufficient number of candidates). Interested? Please contact ABIS.

Intended for

Architects, designers and programmers who are interested in object-relational mapping, using Hibernate and JPA.


Knowledge of Java programming (see course Java programming) and relational databases (see course SQL and relational databases fundamentals) is required. Familiarity with XML (see course XML concepts) is an advantage.

Main topics

O/R mapping • Hibernate architecture

Java Persistence Architecture: annotations • mapping • entity manager

SessionFactory • JDBC connections • logging

Persistent classes • components • relations • inheritance • collections

Different mapping options • n-n associations

Criteria Queries • HQL (Hibernate Query Language) • native SQL

Training method

Lecture and hands-on exercises. The participants will work with Java applications accessing IBM Db2, Oracle, MySQL, MariaDB or other databases.


3 days.

Globalement satisfait du cours. (, )
De cursus was zeer goed. (, )
Zeer goed. Alle belangrijke elementen van Hibernate kwamen aan bod. De docent had de materie goed in zijn vingers. (, )
De kennis van de docent is goed en de cursus sloot perfect aan bij mijn behoefte.Het evaluatieformulier zou uitgesplitst kunnen worden in catogoriën, algemeen, inhoud, docent en faciliteiten met meer niveau's in scoring (, )
Good introduction, of course to use JPA in a web application, it gets a lot harder than just running some basic tests in a standalone program (, )
Prima cursus, soms zware kost (op eind van de dag) (, )
Wellicht te kort om alle oefeningen fatsoenlijk te kunnen maken - teveel theorie. (, )
On a touché à beaucoup de concept. Une vue global sur les possibilités en Hibernate. C'était très bien. (, )
Assez complet et bon équilibre entre la pratique et la théorie (, )
The course was good. For some examples, the explanation was too fast ( e.g. the configuration of server ) (, )
