Hibernate not much in action

I read this book after a rought time dealing with theprofesional hibernate book. I gave 'Profesional Hibernate'a lousy review - mostly based on the amount of typos and innaccurate technical references when decribing the java language.

This book wasa little better - though again, not quite meaty enough for my liking. And not at all 'in action' - at least not real world action.

This book would do you well as an introduction to hibernate and, byu the looks of it, is about as good as it gets with Hibernate books.

Be careful how much faith you put in these reviews - I know that the authors of these partcular books are posting against each other in a very unprofessional way.

Simply the best

I bought this to fulfill my need for a "real" graphic-manipulations-program, and boy was it a good buy!Now I'm the one ruling the show (concerning pics), and make my collegues that use the latest-and-greates Photoshop look rather bleak... BUY IT.

Just as title promises.

This is a well rounded guide that gets right to the point and serves its purpose well. With easily referenced material/subjects (that goes into even more detail when needed), you will likely find everything you'll need using in this one book, without the need for a 'bible' with a lot of discussions that are ultimately irrelevant to the information you seek. A definite for a beginner, and a good reminder or reference on some subjects you may not have touched on over the years for those with experience. And, for the size, this book has a lot and touches on many topics. Well formatted and easy to follow. Recommended.
