As promised, a current snapshot of my work on Hibernate in Action, second edition. The CaveatEmptor alpha2 release has some quite interesting new examples:

  • New DAO pattern based on JDK 5.0 generics
  • First implementation of a Nested Set model for tree-structured read-mostly data

I'll blog about both later this week. Progress on the second edition of HiA is good but there is just so much new material to write about (esp. annotation mappings). Let's see if we can keep the early Q4 release date.
