In this chapter, we looked at data persistence and covered the well-known Hibernate ORM framework. If you have some years' Enterprise programming under your belt, you shouldn't have found it challenging to apply the same concepts to Quarkus. Now, your overall skills include configuring an RDBMS-based application using Hibernate and its simplified paradigm called Panache. We have also learned how to deploy and connect both RDBMS and our application on the cloud on an OpenShift cluster.
To summarize, we have mastered the major pillars of Enterprise programming (moving from REST services to servlets, CDI, and data persistence).
In the next chapter, we'll learn how we can complement the standard Enterprise API with the MicroProfile API in Quarkus.
