Subject Re: Hibernate 3.2 Native SQL versus iBATIS
Date Wed, 06 Aug 2008 19:53:14 GMT
More pros:

  * arbitrary mapping to non-bean/rich classes.. you can request primitives
or maps
  * mapping the same tables to multiple classes and vice versa
  * no assumptions about primary keys

In many cases you'll find you *can* do a lot of these things with Hibernate,
but it's more of a question of "should" you do it with Hibernate.

If you want an ORM, use Hibernate.  If you want to write SQL and map the
inputs and outputs, use iBATIS.
