I'm a JSP/Struts/JDBC developer starting my first Spring/Hibernate project.
I've read many of the docs and downloaded several examples and got them running. I'm now trying to convert one of the Spring examples to use Hibernate. For those interested, I'm converting the "Spring MVC Fast Tutorial" found at http://maestric.com/doc/java/spring - SpringMVC is #3.
I successfully got the WAR deployed, but it's failing when trying to get the hibernateTemplate from the sessionFactory. During deployment the log shows that the hibernateTemplate was created but later, from my view, when I try to use hibernateTemplate.find( ) the object is null.
So, I guess I have not correctly constructed the bean that creates the sessionFactory and makes it persistent.
