Has anybody managed to get Hibernate working with Filemaker? So far everything I've seen seems to imply that it's not possible. However, this website at implies that it's possible.

http://www.360works.com/articles/detail/55

They talk about their using Java with Filemaker, and then mention Hibernate in the list of stuff about Java. I'm not sure if they actually got it to work or are just listing a bunch of Java projects.

So does anyone know? I'd rather not go back to straight sql statements, etc.

TIA.

Filemaker has JDBC driver support from what I understand, so you should be able to configure a generic dialect and use Hibernate. The only thing is that you might lose out on some functionality.

-nods- It does have JDBC support. However, I couldn't find a generic dialect in the Hibernate configuration setup. How would I do that?

There used to be one called GenericDialect, but it looks like they got rid of it in Hibernate 3. You may have to roll your own. It doesn't look too difficult; you'll have to extend Dialect.
