Wow - thank you very much.  I had long been wondering why I was so attracted 
to iBatis rather than Hibernate given that the latter is obviously the way 
everyone has been going.  Its made a light come on in my head.

I have been moved to write a quick note in my blog about it (see 
http://home.chandlerfamily.org.uk/archive/26/ibatis-v-hiberbate) which I think 
gives an answer to Abdullah's question.
