Personally, I don't like Spring (maybe because I didnt understand anything when the instructor taught it), but I LIKE hibernate (maybe because I got it on the first try because I just copy / pasted code) xD. SO ANYWAY I have to post code snippets here when I learn enough.
NOTE TO SELF: You have a blog.
(I hope I remember that note after a day or so haha ha.)
UPDATE [September 29, 2009]: Okay now I like Spring, I actually LOVE it. I don't like Hibernate anymore because after 5 months of not using it, I totally forgot how to use the thing. But hey! maybe I'll like it again after a while you never know! :D
