Course Description


This JPA with Hibernate course is designed to provide students with JPA basics including simple object/relational concepts and annotations, persistence contexts and entity managers, and configuration via persistence.xml. We get a good grounding in the Java Persistence Query Language (JPQL) and take advantage of a prepared JPQL query console to explore the two schemas on which the course's case studies are based. The course then moves into advanced mapping techniques, the Criteria API, lifecycle hooks, validation, locking, and caching. Students will complete the course with a firm understanding of JPA architecture and plenty of hands-on experience.
This version of the course supports JPA 2.1 with Hibernate 5.0. EclipseLink 2.6 is deployed with the course software as well; switching providers is just a matter of moving a few lines in and out of XML comments in the relevant persistence.xml file, and we encourage instructors to demonstrate both providers, to illustrate portability and for comparison of some finer points.
The course also supports either the Derby or Oracle RDBMS. Derby is bundled with the course software and is pre-configured; a script is included to change over to Oracle configurations for all exercises and schema-creation scripts are available for both.



Upon completion of the JPA with Hibernate course, students will be able to:
  • Understand the value of object/relational mapping and JPA's role as a standard for ORM implementations.
  • Develop JPA entities using JPA annotations to align the Java classes, properties, and types to relational tables, columns, and types.
  • Create entity managers and instantiate persistence contexts to perform create/retrieve/update/delete (CRUD) operations.
  • Implement entity relationships of all cardinalities, including unidirectional and bidirectional relationships.
  • Map composite primary keys, inheritance relationships, eager/lazy fetching, and cascading operations.
  • Use JPQL to write object-oriented queries, and process query results.
  • Use the Criteria API to define queries programmatically, and take advantage of type safety using the Metamodel API.
  • Build reusable façades that encapsulate simpler and more complex persistence operations.
  • Implement persistence lifecycle event handlers.
  • Define JSR-303 validation constraints on JPA entities and see them enforced by the JPA provider.
  • Manage concurrent opertaions via optimistic or pessimistic locking strategies.
  • Understand the actions of the local and shared entity caches, and use them appropriately while avoiding over-caching pitfalls.
