Hibernate & JPA Tutorial - Crash Course

Ever looked for a comprehensive tutorial to Hibernate & JPA that is fun and entertaining at the same time?

This video is a crash course into the Hibernate & JPA universe.

We'll start with getting the correct project dependencies, annotating our classes with JPA annotations and setting up a SessionFactory. This allows us to execute basic CRUD operations, HQL and Criteria queries.

Afterwards we can simply JPAify our code, switching out a couple of classes and you'll understand how Hibernate / JPA & Spring Boot play together.

By the end of it, you'll have a good (initial) understanding of how to use it and what your future Hibernate / JPA learning journey entails.

Best JPA is JOOQ.

Yup, jOOQ is a very good choice.

Sorry, it's true.
