This firstPress title gets readers rolling with the various fundamental Spring Framework Java Persistence concepts and offerings, as well as proven design patterns for integrating Spring Persistence functionality for complex and transaction–based enterprise Java applications.

The Java platform offers several options for saving “long–lived” information, including JPA (Java Persistence API), Hibernate, iBatis, JDBC, and even JCR (Java Content Repository—a standard for interfacing with a content management system).

This book helps readers decide which persistence solution is the most ideal for their application requirements, and shows how Spring can be leveraged to simplify the integration of their selected persistence framework into their enterprise application.

What you’ll learn

  • Learn to implement Spring Persistence, which involves persistence tools in Spring as well as choosing the best Java persistence frameworks/tools outside of Spring.
  • Work with Spring Framework features such as inversion of control, aspect-oriented programming (AOP), and more.
  • Understand the core concepts of JPA and steps for integrating JPA for architecting a well–layered persistence tier.
  • Work with Hibernate and integrate it into your Spring applications.
  • Develop with the iBatis framework, and see how it differs from other persistence solutions.
  • Work with Spring–JDBC, declarative transactions with Spring, and discover the benefits of a lightweight persistence strategy.
  • Examine other persistence concepts and frameworks not usually covered in other books.

Who this book is for

This book is ideal for developers interested in learning more about persistence framework options on the Java platform, as well as fundamental Spring concepts. Because the book covers several persistence frameworks, it is suitable for anyone interested in learning more about Spring or any of the frameworks covered. Lastly, this book covers advanced topics related to persistence architecture and design patterns and is ideal for beginning developers looking to learn more in this area as well.
