This article is based on the latest chapter that’s been added to the Hibernate User Guide.
The Performance Tuning and Best Practices chapter aims to help the application developer to get the most out of their Hibernate persistence layer.
Every enterprise system is unique. However, having a very efficient data access layer is a common requirement for many enterprise applications.
Hibernate comes with a great variety of features that can help you tune the data access layer.
We are making good progress working on Bean Validation 2.0 and we decided to move the target version for BV 2.0 to Hibernate Validator 6 (see more at the end of this post!).
We did not want to leave 5.3 half backed so we are preparing a 5.3 release with bugfixes, additional translations… and a few new features. This Candidate Release 1 is the first step towards this process. Expect a quick 5.3.0.Final release after that so please test this version as thoroughly as possible and report any bugs you may find in it!
