No. You normally create one table at once and use it forever.
Adding columns dynamically just indicates a flaw in your datamodel.

If you for example want to add a new column every day, then you should rather be using a fixed column denoting the day itself.

Yes. However, its not a smart thing to do (as Bauke suggests). Hibernate allows you to run SQL, which gives you access to DDL. However, you would need to delete/reconfigure/open your SessionFactory everytime you did this.
