What’s new in Hibernate: a JPA 2 perspective

This Jazoon 2010 session presents the new features of Hibernate and in particular the one coming from Java Persistence 2. Itl explores 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 and the fetch profile. This session will also briefly describe 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.
