Hi All,
There are two configuration files in Hibernate by which we can configure the DB connection .One is xml configuration file (name Hibernate.cfg.xml) and other one is properties file (name hibernate.properties) .
Which configuration file should use ? Which one is the better approach ?

Thanks and regards,
Satya

An alternative approach to configuration is to specify a full configuration in a file named hibernate.cfg.xml. This file can be used as a replacement for the hibernate.properties file or, if both are present, to override properties.

Even hibernate documentation recommends to keep both types of file in your class path.

Thanks Subramani for the reply .
As per my understanding the properties file is the better approach , because its more user friendly and it support some default values as well.
Please correct me if am wrong .....

Satya
