Thank you for your engagement in the AoF over the years! We look forward to offering you a more enhanced forum experience.

I'm currently reading the online documentation at http://www.hibernate.org/hib_docs/reference/en/html . The quality of the documentation is very good for an open source project. What's missing are diagrams. I hope your book will include copious amounts of diagrams. I'd especially enjoy seeing a UML class diagram next to an ER diagram next to the XML mapping file. I think this approach would be very useful in explaining associations. I'm definitely looking forward to your book. I hope to be able to recommend it to my peers.

Thanks in advance for your efforts.
