Happy New Year, everyone!
Starting this year, we are going to host a series of articles focused on the Hibernate community. We are going to share blog posts, forum and StackOverflow questions, that are especially relevant to our users.
Thorben Janssen, who regularly writes about JPA and Hibernate topics, has summarized the most typical logging configurations in a Hibernate Logging Guide.
For our Portuguese readers, Rafael Ponte has written a very interesting article about bidirectional relationships and the caveats of not properly synchronizing both ends of a bidirectional association.
One topic, I always wanted to investigate in great details, is about the aggressive connection release behavior employed for JTA transactions. For high-performance data access platforms, it’s worth checking if the Java EE application server can operate successfully even without aggressive connection release.
