Hibernate is Object-Oriented mapping tool that maps the object view of data
into relational database and provides efficient persistence services such as
create, read, update and delete (CRUD).
In this tutorial we will implement small search engine application that shows
a search form to the user. User enters search string and presses search button.
Struts framework process the request and passes it to the action for further
processing. Action class uses Hibernate to make database calls and retrieves
matching records from database and results are displayed to the user.
Full example code is provided with the tutorial and you can download and
start working on it for your project or to learn Struts and Hibernate
Integration. You can download the
source code from here.
