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.
