I am new to Hibernate.
From googl'ing around, I found that Hibernate is designed for mapping object classes and database.
But this doesn't entirely solve my puzzle on this framework, that is what it's distinct advantage over simple usage of JDBC?
Unless Hibernate has another important/popular usage rather than only dealing with database, I would think this is may be the only reason why Hibernate getting more popularity.
Can anyone tell me?
