  • What's new in Hibernate: a JPA 2 perspective

    by Emmanuel Bernard

    If you want to know what new feature of Hibernate you are missing, come and join us.

    Java Persistence 2 is closing the gap and standardizes even more persistence related features.
    What does this mean in the context of the Hibernate project? Generally speaking, what's new in Hibernate?

    In this session, we will check out the new features of Hibernate and in particular the one coming from Java Persistence 2. They will be explored in live coding sessions.

    We will explore:

    • the new type-safe Criteria API as well as its close brother the new Hibernate Static metamodel generator
    • the new locking options and their consequences for your applications
    • Infinispan's new second level cache
    • fetch profiles
    • the new partial generators
    • and many more things

    We will also walk through what's beyond Hibernate Core: Hibernate has slowly grown from the ORM to a set of domain model centric tools like validation, full-text search and so on:

    • Hibernate Validator and the Bean Validation specification
    • Hibernate Envers and temporal data support
    • Hibernate Search and full-text search for Hibernate applications.

    General knowledge of Hibernate or ORM (Object Relational Mapping) is preferred.

    At 1:30pm to 4:30pm, Tuesday 16th November
