I'm reading Chapter 2 of Harnessing Hibernate, and when generating my db schema, I get an error that a hibernate dialect has not been set.


Project Structure


The Build Error


relevant sections of build.xml

I have my hibernate.properties file in my src (${source.root}) directory, and it is copied over to the classes (${class.root}) directory in the dependent prepare <target> before the schema <target> is run.

It appears to me that hibernate.properties is not being found by hbm2ddl.

Should I be placing this file elsewhere?

I've also downloaded the examples and ended up with the same error, however the example does not appear to come with a hibernate.properties file, so that would be expected.

I don't have the book. But what is the strategy used to bootstrap the Hibernate? Is not defined a hibernate.cfg.xml file? If it reads from a properties file then how?

Hello and thank you for responding.

I did a diff with the files that came with the book (after I found them) and discovered I had mis-typed a few lines...there's probably nothing to bootstrap it, as in Chapter 2 we are just generating the Java source classes from an .hbm.xml file and also generating the ddl schema for the database.
