I am new to hibernate and have been reading the book "Beginning Hibernate from Novice to Professional" by Dave Minster and Jeff Linwood.
When the object mappings are in place and the hibernate configuration is set up correctly, then we can generate a script to create the database for our application by invoking the exportDDL task. I see that this task is present in ANT. I have eclipse setup with Hibernate/Hibernate Tools. I have also downloaded the latest ANT 1.7.1, but do not know the procedure to install/setup this version of ANT in eclipse and run the the exportDDL task in eclipse. The ANT that I downloaded contains the directories bin, docs, etc and lib. It also contains the XML documents fetch and get-m2.
Any help in this regard shall be highly appreciated.
