Hibernate vs MyBatis: 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, MyBatis is detailed as "SQL Mapper Framework for Java". It is a first class persistence framework with support for custom SQL, stored procedures and advanced mappings. It eliminates almost all of the JDBC code and manual setting of parameters and retrieval of results. It can use simple XML or Annotations for configuration and map primitives, Map interfaces and Java POJOs (Plain Old Java Objects) to database records.

Hibernate can be classified as a tool in the "Object Relational Mapper (ORM)" category, while MyBatis is grouped under "Java Tools".

MyBatis is an open source tool with 11.2K GitHub stars and 7.07K GitHub forks. Here's a link to MyBatis's open source repository on GitHub.

      What are some alternatives to Hibernate and MyBatis?
      Spring
      A key element of Spring is infrastructural support at the application level: Spring focuses on the "plumbing" of enterprise applications so that teams can focus on application-level business logic, without unnecessary ties to specific deployment environments.
      Entity Framework
      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.
      Sequelize
      Sequelize is a promise-based ORM for Node.js and io.js. It supports the dialects PostgreSQL, MySQL, MariaDB, SQLite and MSSQL and features solid transaction support, relations, read replication and more.
      SQLAlchemy
      SQLAlchemy is the Python SQL toolkit and Object Relational Mapper that gives application developers the full power and flexibility of SQL.
      Doctrine 2
      Doctrine 2 sits on top of a powerful database abstraction layer (DBAL). One of its key features is the option to write database queries in a proprietary object oriented SQL dialect called Doctrine Query Language (DQL), inspired by Hibernates HQL.
