Hibernate vs Entity Framework: What are the differences?
Developers describe Hibernate as "Idiomatic persistence for Java and relational databases". Hibernate is a suite of open source projects around domain models. The flagship project is Hibernate ORM, the Object Relational Mapper. On the other hand, Entity Framework is detailed as "An object-relational mapper that enables .NET developers to work with relational data". It is an object-relational mapper that enables .NET developers to work with relational data using domain-specific objects. It eliminates the need for most of the data-access code that developers usually need to write.
Hibernate and Entity Framework can be primarily classified as "Object Relational Mapper (ORM)" tools.
Entity Framework is an open source tool with 1.02K GitHub stars and 445 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Entity Framework's open source repository on GitHub.
