Fitting Hibernate into the Existing Environment
In this chapter, we have looked at the way in which Hibernate can integrate with your existing application environment. We have shown some techniques that allow an extant database to be accommodated and we have shown how a legacy application can be integrated with the Hibernate API. In addition, we have considered some of the limitations and constraints that Hibernate’s “do it right” philosophy imposes.
This is the penultimate chapter of the book and the last in which we introduce the new features of Hibernate 3. In the final chapter, we will discuss the differences between Hibernate 2 and 3. We will also discuss some of the features that Hibernate 3 offers to support Hibernate 2 users.
