Chapter 11. Hibernate Support

In this chapter, we will take a look at the Hibernate support code in Spring. We will begin with a short description of the Hibernate versions and their support in Spring. Next, you will read about configuration of the Hibernate session factory and transaction manager. After that, we will take a look at how to write efficient data manipulation code, focusing especially on using Hibernate with other data access methods.

Finally, we will you show some integration testing approaches.
