Subject Re: Database connection by cocoon 2.2
Date Fri, 06 Jun 2008 11:54:44 GMT
You probably already have looked at it, but the documentation on
springframework.org is actually very good (something for Cocoon to
aspire to ;-) -- the section on database access is at
http://static.springframework.org/spring/docs/2.5.x/reference/jdbc.html

You can certainly work with the Spring database API directly and not
involve Hibernate if you so choose.  We use Hibernate because we like to
conceptualize a database as holding Java objects, not just tables of
data.
