1. Database independent application 2.In Jdbc we use .properties file and in hibernate we use .xml file which is a better approach. 3.Automatic primary key generation 4.Object/Relational mapping definition 5.High Performance 6.Primary feature of hibernate is to java classes to database tables. Data query and retrieval is also possible with Hibernate 7.Hibernate it allows developers to port applications to almost all SQL databases. 8.You will get benefit of Cache. Hibernate support two level of cache. First level and 2nd level. So you can store your data into Cache for better performance. In case of JDBC you need to implement your java cache 9.In the xml file you can see all the relations between tables in case of Hibernate. Easy readability. 10.You can load your objects on start up using lazy=false in case of Hibernate. JDBC Don't have such support. 11.Hibernate Supports automatic versioning of rows but JDBC Not.
