what do you mean by "reach down to get Hibernate" exactly?  Are you talking about using the javax.persistence.Session interface directly as required in a class and importing the appropriate package/interface?

so in other words, use JPA (e.g. EntityManager) most of the time unless you need a method that JPA api does not provide but Hibernate API does?
