JPA vs. Hibernate?

· Java Zone

What every Java engineer should know about microservices: Reactive Microservices Architecture.  Brought to you in partnership with Lightbend.

Whether to use standard or non-standard APIs is always a constructive, ongoing tug-of-war (well, most of the time, anyway). It seems that the tug-of-war is particularly fierce when it comes to anything open source. That's quite unfortunate as open source and open standards should be ideological brothers-in-arms, but then we all know that feuds tend to be the worst amongst blood relatives. :-) One facet of this debate that seems pervasive and persistent is whether to use Hibernate's legacy non-standard APIs or standard JPA.

Key Hibernate developer Emmanuel Bernard of Red Hat offers his insights on the matter on an audio interview with TSS (TheServerSide) chief editor Cameron McKenzie (spoiler: it's not an either/or proposition :-)). If the past few years are any indicator, this won't settle the war of words, but at least it might be a good bit of input for those interested ...

Enjoy!
