Course Objectives

JBoss Hibernate offers high-performing object/relational persistence and query services. The JBoss Hibernate Technology (JB297) three-day course gives Java developers the knowledge and skills required to leverage the powerful Java Hibernate Application Stack. This course strongly emphasizes and makes extensive use of Hibernate Core, Hibernate EntityManager, Hibernate Annotations, and Hibernate best practices.Through clear interactive lectures and hands-on labs, students are introduced to Hibernate Framework APIs, design and development essentials, along with its practical applications and best practices strategies. Hibernate helps students produce and maintain well-designed, robust business applications while optimizing performance and reducing software maintenance costs. This course will also demonstrate Hibernate testing and runtime techniques and enhancements which are well-suited for next-generation, standards-based Java applications.
