  • About Java

    Java is a programming language originally developed by James Gosling at Sun Microsystems and released in 1995 as a core component of Sun Microsystems' Java platform. The language derives much of its syntax from C and C++ but has a simpler object model and fewer low-level facilities. Java applications are typically compiled to bytecode (class file) that can run on any Java Virtual Machine (JVM) regardless of computer architecture

    Java is general-purpose, concurrent, class-based, and object-oriented, and is specifically designed to have as few implementation dependencies as possible. It is intended to let application developers "write once, run anywhere". Java is considered by many as one of the most influential programming languages of the 20th century, and widely used from application software to web application.

Course Outline

This course develops skills in using the Object/Relational Mapping tool Hibernate®. By the end of the course, students will be prepared to set-up and use Hibernate as the persistence mechanism in Java applications.

The course targets Hibernate 3.2. For training in more recent versions, and especially to learn about Hibernate as a provider under the newer Java Persistence API standard, consider Course 161-HB, JPA with Hibernate.

  • Configure Hibernate using both properties files and XML documents.
  • Create mapping documents for Java classes.
  • Define object relationships and build mapping documents to model them.
  • Use components to model composition relationships in the object model.
  • Work with one-to-one, many-to-one, and many-to-many relationships.
  • Evaluate the different approaches to modeling inheritance and polymorphism in database schema.
  • Build Java applications that use Hibernate to create, retrieve, update, and delete objects.
  • Use Hibernate's Criteria Query API to do searches and Query By Example.
  • Work with Hibernate Query Language (HQL) to generate object-based SQL.
  • Understand Hibernate sessions and transactions and their impact on performance.
  • Intermediate knowledge of Java programming;
  • Some familiarity with SQL, relational databases, and the Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) interfaces will be helpful;
