In this chapter, you will learn how to integrate object/relational mapping (ORM) frameworks into your Spring applications. Spring supports most of the popular ORM frameworks, including Hibernate, JDO, TopLink, iBATIS, and JPA. The focus of this chapter will be on Hibernate and the Java Persistence API (JPA). However, Spring’s support for these ORM frameworks is consistent, so you can easily apply the techniques in this chapter to other ORM frameworks as well.
