Overview of this book

This book will provide a useful hands-on guide to Hibernate to accomplish the development of a real-time Hibernate application. We will start with the basics of Hibernate, which include setting up Hibernate – the pre-requisites and multiple ways of configuring Hibernate using Java. We will then dive deep into the fundamentals of Hibernate such as SessionFactory, session, criteria, working with objects and criteria. This will help a developer have a better understanding of how Hibernate works and what needs to be done to run a Hibernate application. Moving on, we will learn how to work with annotations, associations and collections. In the final chapters, we will see explore querying, advanced Hibernate concepts and integration with other frameworks.

Persisting Map

Map is used when we want to persist a collection of key/value pairs where the key is always unique. Some common implementations of java.util.Map are java.util.HashMap, java.util.LinkedHashMap, and so on. For this recipe, we will use java.util.HashMap.

Getting ready

Now, let's assume that we have a scenario where we are going to implement Map<String, String>; here, the String key is the e-mail address label, and the value String is the e-mail address. For example, we will try to construct a data structure similar to <"Personal e-mail", "[email protected]">, <"Business e-mail", "[email protected]">. This means that we will create an alias of the actual e-mail address so that we can easily get the e-mail address using the alias and can document it in a more readable form. This type of implementation depends on the custom requirement; here, we can easily get a business e-mail using the Business email key.

Use the following code to create the...
