Hibernate is an amazing piece of software. With a little experience and the power of Java 5
annotations, you can build a complex database-backed system with disturbing ease. Once
you have built a system using Hibernate, you will never want to go back to the traditional
While Hibernate is incredibly powerful, it presents a steep learning curve when you first
encounter it—steep learning curves are actually a good thing, as they impart profound insight
once you have scaled them. Yet gaining that insight takes some perseverance and assistance.
This book packs in information about the release of the Hibernate 3.5 persistence layer and provides a clear introduction to the current standard for object-relational persistence in Java. And since the book keeps its focus on Hibernate without wasting time on nonessential third-party tools, you’ll be able to immediately start building transaction-based engines and applications.
Beginning POJOs introduces you to open source lightweight web development using Plain Old Java Objects (POJOs) and the tools and frameworks that enable this. Tier by tier, this book guides you through the construction of complex but lightweight enterprise Java-based web applications. Such applications are centered around several major open source lightweight frameworks, including Spring, Hibernate, Tapestry, and JBoss.
Additional support comes from the most successful and prevalent open-source tools: Eclipse and Ant, and the increasingly popular TestNG.
The field of molecular imaging/nuclear medicine continues to build excitement
for the medical community as a whole. To be able to visualize fundamental
molecular and biochemical processes in patients in a meaningful way has truly
become reality. Of all the available molecular probes and tools it is clear that
FDG with PET-CT is one of the true clinical success stories. Very few would
have been able to predict the eventual impact of a simple glucose analog as a
marker for imaging cancer, hibernating myocardium, Alzheimer’s disease,
epilepsy and many other important disease processes....
JDBC has simplified database access in Java applications, but a few nagging wrinkles remain—namely, persisting Java objects to relational databases. With this book, you’ll learn how the Spring Framework makes that job incredibly easy with dependency injection, template classes, and object-relational-mapping (ORM).
Through sample code, you’ll discover how Spring streamlines the use of JDBC and ORM tools such as Hibernate, the Java Persistence API (JPA), and Java Data Objects (JDO).
