This course, written by Nick Todd, the author of JavaServer Pages 2.0 Developers Handbook from Sams Publishing, teaches you how to create enterprise applications using the latest versions of the very popular Spring and Hibernate frameworks. The training course will be delivered using Eclipse and Maven as the core development and build environments. In addition to teaching all the major aspects of both frameworks, the course also covers best practice integration between the frameworks and also the architectural principles surrounding how to use the frameworks appropriately. Note that additional optional modules are available covering Spring security, Spring messaging and Hibernate caching.


This training course combines lectures with practical exercises that help the delegates to put what they have learned on the training course into practice. The exercises specifically build on what has been recently taught and are built up as the training course progresses.

Who it is for

Developers who need to be able to build enterprise Java based applications using both Spring and Hibernate technology

Training Course Prerequisites

  • Delegates must be familiar with XML, and they must also be familiar with Web technologies such as HTML and HTTP. Java programming experience is required for this training course. If you do not have Java, then some scripting experience would be extremely advantageous.
