HI I got the exception while using this below code.

// This step will read hibernate.cfg.xml and prepare hibernate for use
SessionFactory sessionFactory = new Configuration().configure().buildSessionFactory();
session =sessionFactory.openSession();

Configuration cfg = new Configuration();
cfg.addFile("/bin/hibernate.cfg.xml");
SessionFactory sesfact=(SessionFactory) cfg.configure().buildSessionFactory();
session=sesfact.openSession();

System.out.println("session : "+session);
//Create new instance of Contact and set values in it by reading them from form object
System.out.println("Inserting Record");
Contact contact = new Contact();
contact.setId(6);
contact.setFirstName("Deepak");
contact.setLastName("Kumar");
contact.setEmail("deepak_38@yahoo.com");
session.save(contact);
System.out.println("Done");
}catch(Exception e){
System.out.println(e.getMessage());
}finally{
// Actual contact insertion will happen at this step
session.flush();
session.close();


java.lang.NullPointerException

What are you doing on line 45? That is where the NullPointerException is being thrown - without line numbers it is difficult for us to help.

That aside, why are you trying to create a SessionFactory twice?

Remove those lines, you can't open a session if there is no configuration. Just like what Paul is saying.

Hello,

It looks like some jars are missing in your application. Wrap your code in a try/catch block and catch the Throwable object some thing like below.

try
{
/// code
/// code
}
catch(Throwable t)
{
t.printStackTrace();
}

You should get some exception on which class is missing.

Regards,
Naresh Waswani

Why do you think that? In not seeing any ClassNotFoundExceptions.
