Hello, do you have something spring mvc and hibernate?

Eugen Paraschiv

Hey Bogdan,
Spring MVC and Hibernate are different concerns, so I generally didn’t cover them in the same article, but independently.
However, if you’re looking for a template project to start from, you can have a look at the Registration series.
Hope that helps. Cheers,
