1. Hibernate works well when you control the data model, iBatis works well when you need to intergate with an existing database, 2. With IBatis you will get full control on SQL but hibenate deals with relationships of tables.

Ibatis is something in between Hibernate and JDBC.Hibernate provides a way to represent database rows as objects so that developers can easily call create update delete methods on them where Ibatis helps developers in mapping SQL queries in the form of XML files these queries can be mapped to a name and parameters can be passed to them. Now these queries can be accesed as Java objects and can be called by passing parameters.

In iBatis Java objects are mapped to the result sets. IBatis only maps the Java bean properties to database fields, and it fetches the database results in the form of Java beans based on configuration. In Hibernate Java objects are mapped to the database tables.iBATIS maps Java Objects to the results of SQL Queries, whereas Hibernate maps Java Objects directly to database tables, traditional Object-Relational Mapping. The benefits of Hibernate are that it automatically generates all the SQL for your and the cache invalidation can be more fine grained. iBATIS is more flexible especially if we are a strong SQL query writer. We have control over exactly how the SQL queries are written.iBATIS uses Data Mapper Pattern whereas Hibernate uses Active Record Pattern
