I'd recently picked up on Spring and was recommending our team to use Spring + Hibernate stack. Now I ran into some articles on JPA. I went through some examples with Spring's JPA support. Now here are my questions,
1) Do I need to use an ORM framework (like Hibernate) if I am going to use Spring + JPA ? 2) What benefits do Spring+JPA provides over Spring+Hibernate? 3) Is Spring+JPA an alternative to Spring+Hibernate? Does it provides all the features (abstraction, caching, distribution etc.) that Hibernate gives you? 4) Can I continue to use Spring+Hibernate with these new APIs ?
