Hibernate is an open-source object-relational mapping and query service. Hibernate allows us to write HQL (hibernate query language) scripts through an SQL extension, a much faster process than writing scripts in native SQL (structured query language).
There are some key advantages of using hibernate. It is database-independent, and its standard ORM also supports JPA (Java Persistence API). It also features domain object mapping to the regional database. Plus, the database connectivity is better in Hibernate compared to JDBC.
There are also some disadvantages of using hibernate. Its use of HQL makes it slower to execute queries. It only has HQL support available for composite keys, which limits advanced query options. Also, it doesn’t have shared value type references available.
