I am configuring a project and adding hibernate Jars to my buildpath. I was wondering why I had to do this since within eclipse I had installed jboss tools? I mean to ask, when people download hibernate from the site, are they just downloading a bunch of Jar files so that they can later use them in projects, or are the Jar files one aspect of it, and "downloading hibernate" another? Sorry if this is confusing.

What other such tools or technologies are really just a combination of many JARS, Spring? JSP? are they?

thanks

and what is a 'schema' exactly? I looked it up and have a rough idea, but can someone provide a simple definition please?

See Wikipedia's entry for "Schema".
