Hibernate: How to keep calm
22. September 2022
Watch Gregor Lucnys presentation at the WeAreDevelopers Java Developers Day in january 2023.
Being one of the most popular persistence frameworks for Java, Hibernate provides easy-to-use, object-oriented access to relational databases, enabling developers to focus on business logic rather than writing tons of JDBC statements. While this easy-to-use approach allows rapid application development, it comes with its own pitfalls. We are using Hibernate in all of our Spring Boot projects in a variety of scenarios, from classic web applications to long-running batch processes. On the way we made design decisions we regret now, discovered cool features, and found out a lot about how (and how not to) use Hibernate. In the following session, we will give a brief introduction to Hibernate and discuss some of our learnings.
