High-Performance Java Persistence - Online Workshop

Get the most out of your data access layer

   Watch Promo

Hibernate is the most popular JPA provider and knowing its inner-workings can make the difference between a high-performance enterprise application and one that barely crawls.

Based on my book, High-Performance Java Persistence, this online workshop is meant to mind the gap between Java developers and database programming.

Date and Time

The next session is scheduled for the 25th of June, from 13:30 to 16:00 CET (Central European Time).


In the next webinar, I'm going to present The Best Way to Map JPA and Hibernate Entities.

Therefore, we are going to discuss:

  • What are the basic entity types and how to choose column types for best performance
  • How to use database-specific column types like JSON, ARRAY, HStore, Inet, and more
  • What are entity identifiers and what auto-generation strategies are offered by JPA
  • What are Hibernate natural identifiers
  • How the Hibernate sequence optimizers work
  • Why you should avoid the TABLE GenerationType strategy
  • Database table relationships (e.g., one-to-many, one-to-one, many-to-many)
  • How does the JPA @ManyToOne relationship work
  • How does the JPA @OneToMany relationship work
  • Unidirectional vs. bidirectional @OneToMany collections
  • How to synchronize both sides of a bidirectional association
  • How does the JPA @ManyToMany relationship work
  • How to map additional columns for a @ManyToMany relationship

Target audience

This online workshop is for any Java developer that happens to develop software that interacts with a relational database system.

After attending this workshop, you'll know all sorts of tips that you can readily apply to your current enterprise project.

Technical requirements

It is recommended to bring your own notebook so that you can configure and run tests associated with the material we are going to go through in this training.

The online workshop is going to be run as a Zoom Webinar.
