Hibernate 5 is the latest innovation in the Hibernate ORM framework series. Yet again Hibernate came us with its latest release of ORM framework with many new features and improvements. Hibernate now supports NoSQL database and you can use any such database with your Hibernate 5 application.

Hibernate 5 also fully supports the features of JDK 8 and you can use JDK date/time improvements in you Hibernate applications. Hibernate is powerful framework and with little effort you can build complex database driven applications.

Learning curve of Hibernate is little high but if you spend time and learn Hibernate you won't go back again to the traditional means of coding using JDBC. Hibernate framework hides the complexity of JDBC and provides clean API for developers to use in their applications.

In these tutorials series we will be explaining you the theory and provide you examples. Through Hibernate 5 examples you will be able to learn it quickly and master ORM API of Hibernate. Learning through examples will provide you confidence of using the framework in real-life projects.

Pre requisites of learning Hibernate

Hibernate is one layer above the traditional JDBC programming, so you must know JDBC programming. You should have solid understanding of JDBC, SQL and Database server such as MySQL. In this tutorial we using MySQL database as a backend of the application.

You should know following technologies:
