Hey everybody,

I am trying to build a standalone application that uses hibernate to connect to a postgres database. I have managed to make it work by using hibernate.cfg.xml and hibernate.hbm.xml to map the classes to the tables. But this is not what I really want. I'd rather use the tag mapping, something like this:

Can anybody pretty please tell me what I have to do to make it work the tag way? Or point to a tutorial?

Thank you in advance,

Corneliu

When using Annotations, it can be done in two ways...

1.) One by using JPA APIs...
2.) Hibernate Specific APIs...

When using Hibernate Specific APIs and using Annotations, You will have to use "AnnotationConfiguration" class and below links would be helpful:

Step-1 :http://docs.jboss.org/hibernate/annotations/3.5/reference/en/html/ch01.html

Step-2 : http://docs.jboss.org/hibernate/annotations/3.5/reference/en/html_single/

Hey corneliu,
I would suggest JAVA PERSISTENCE with HIBERNATE (by Christian Bauer and Gavin King) is a good reference book to strengthen the basics of Hibernate.
Nice examples and clear understanding of the concepts.

@Ram Narayan.M: Thank you, all works fine now.
@Bhavesh Dak: Thank you, I hope I won't have to go any deeper than this with hibernate. But if I do I'll get the book.
@everybody: Someone please kill that fly, it's been annoying the moose for too long.
