Spring and Hibernate
This comprehensive 4-day introduction to Spring and Hibernate demonstrates the best of breed of

existing open source Java enterprise technologies.
Delegates will learn how to using Spring's dependency injection features to write loosely-coupled,

easily-maintainable enterprise applications with simple Java components and to make use of

Hibernate's Object-Relational mapping features to write database access code quickly and

efficiently. Additionally, we explore two complementary methods of building web interfaces using

Spring's MVC and Web Flow frameworks. Delegates will also learn how to make use of Spring to

build automated tests for individual components to achieve the highest code quality.
A fully-featured sample application has been developed to showcase all of the features in question.

Delegates will learn how to build this application piece-by-piece and thus understand the best

overall approach to integrating these two technologies. This is an advanced course and thus

requires competent Java developers who can display a high level of commitment to the training. A

series of graded exercise will enable developers to get to grips with the technologies, understand

the development cycle and encouter the configuration issues and errors that may occur.
Our trainers are Java experts who have a number of years of experience of working as developers,

architects and consultants in industry as well as being experienced trainers.

This course will enable delegates with Java experience to write maintainable and testable web and

enterprise technologies using the Spring and Hibernate open source Frameworks.

Developers should have solid Java development experience and be fluent in writing Java code. In

particular, delegates should be familiar with the Generics and Collections features of Java 5/6. An

introductory knowledge of JSP is important. Delegates must also understand the structure of a

relational database (RDBMS), including foreign key relationships between tables, and be able to

understand simple SQL queries including inner joins. An understanding of introductory XML and

HTML markup is highly desirable.
