    Hibernate Setup with an web Application

    Follow the steps to setup Hibernate.

    Step 1. Create folders like below.

    ----src     // Java Source Code folder
    -------------beans //Source Code folder   
                     | //Source Code    
    -------------servlet //Source Code folder   
                     | //Source Code    
    -------------dao //Source Code folder   
                     | //Source Code    
    ----config     // config folder where all the configuration files present
    -------------hibernate.cfg.xml //Hibernate Config file   
    -------------Offer.hbm.xml// hibernate mapping with Offer TABLE log4j setting    
    ----WEB-INF //within folder    
    ---------web.xml //file   
    ---------classes //folder   
    ---------lib //within folder   
    -------------hibernate3.jar //jar file   
    -------------antlr-2.7.6rc1.jar //jar file   
    -------------asm.jar //jar file   
    -------------asm-attrs.jar //jar file   
    -------------c3p0-0.9.0.jar //jar file for connection pool   
    -------------classes12.jar //if you use ORACLE DATABASE jar file   
    -------------mysql-connector-java-5.0.4-bin.jar //if you use MySQL DATABASE jar file   
    -------------commons-logging.jar //jar file   
    -------------commons-validator.jar //jar file   
    -------------dom4j-1.6.1.jar //jar file   
    -------------jta.jar //jar file   
    -------------log4j-1.2.11.jar //jar file   
    -------------nls_charset12.jar //jar file   

    Step 2. Add DBStartUpServlet Entry into the web.xml file

    This servlet is only for load configuration files related to Hibernate and create Session Factory on start up .
    Create Session Factory is very Expensive
    Create Session Factory is very Expensive so we added one servlet to create on server startup
    Initialize Connection pool on startup
    Initialize Connection pool on startup using c3p0.
    Initialize log4j configuration
    Initialize log4j configuration on startup.

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
    <!DOCTYPE web-app
    PUBLIC "-//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD Web Application 2.3//EN"
    Hibernate Setup </description>

    Step 3. DBStartUpServlet Code

    package servlet;
    public class DBStartUpServlet extends HttpServlet {
    /** Initialising the Logger */
    protected static final Logger logger=Logger.getLogger(DBStartUpServlet.class);
    public void init(ServletConfig config) throws ServletException {
    System.out.println("\n**** Initializing Hibernate Init Servlet ********** \n");

    //This is for local properties.
    String cfgDir = "D:\\testApp\\config";"config dir:"+cfgDir);
    HibernateUtil.appHome = cfgDir;
    }catch(Exception e){


    /** Handles the requests from http client.
    * @param request servlet request
    * @param response servlet response
    protected void service(HttpServletRequest request,HttpServletResponse response)
    throws ServletException, {

    private void initLogPro(String path){
    }catch(Exception ex){
    System.out.println("Log4J can not be initialized");"Log4J can not be initialized");



    Step 4. code

    package dao;
    public class HibernateUtil {
    public static String appHome = "No";
    private static SessionFactory sessionFactory;
    private static final ThreadLocal threadSession = new ThreadLocal();
    private static final ThreadLocal threadTransaction = new ThreadLocal();

    // Create the initial SessionFactory from the default configuration files
    public static void configure(){
    try {
    String path_properties = appHome+File.separatorChar+"hibernate.cfg.xml";
    Configuration configuration = new Configuration();
    sessionFactory =configuration.configure().buildSessionFactory();

    } catch (Throwable ex) {

    throw new ExceptionInInitializerError(ex);
    public static SessionFactory getSessionFactory() {
    if(sessionFactory==null) configure();
    return sessionFactory;

    public static Session getSession(){
    Session s = (Session) threadSession.get();
    // logger.debug("session"+s);
    if (s == null) {

    s = getSessionFactory().openSession();
    // logger.debug("session 1 $"+s);
    return s;


    Step 5. hibernate.cfg.xml for hibernate configuration (within config folder)

    <?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
    <lt;!DOCTYPE hibernate-configuration PUBLIC
    "-//Hibernate/Hibernate Configuration DTD 3.0//EN"
    <!-- Database connection settings -->
    <property name="connection.driver_class">com.mysql.jdbc.Driver</property>
    <property name="connection.url">jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/techfaqdb</property>
    <property name="connection.username">techfaq</property>
    <property name="connection.password">techfaq</property>
    <!-- JDBC connection pool (use the built-in) -->
    <property name="hibernate.c3p0.min_size">1</property>
    <property name="hibernate.c3p0.max_size">4</property>
    <property name="hibernate.c3p0.timeout">1800</property>
    <property name="hibernate.c3p0.max_statements">50</property>
    <!-- MySQL dialect//different for different Database -->
    <property name="dialect">org.hibernate.dialect.MySQLDialect</property>
    <!-- Enable Hibernate's automatic session context management -->
    <property name="current_session_context_class">thread</property>
    <!-- Disable the second-level cache -->
    <property name="cache.provider_class">org.hibernate.cache.NoCacheProvider</property>
    <!-- Echo all executed SQL to stdout -->
    <property name="show_sql">true</property>
    <property name="">update</property>
    <mapping resource="Offer.hbm.xml"/>

    Step 6. bean class.(within beans folder)

    package beans;
    public class Offer {
    private long offerId;
    private String offerName;
    * @return Returns the offerId.
    */ public long getOfferId() {
    return offerId;
    * @param offerId The offerId to set.
    private void setOfferId(long offerId) {
    this.offerId = offerId;
    /** * @return Returns the offerName.
    public String getOfferName() {
    return offerName;
    * @param offerName The offerName to set.
    public void setOfferName(String offerName) {
    this.offerName = offerName;

    Step 7. and OFFER TABLE mapping in Offer.hbm.xml

    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <!DOCTYPE hibernate-mapping PUBLIC
    "-//Hibernate/Hibernate Mapping DTD 3.0//EN"
    <class name="beans.Offer" table="OFFER">
    <id name="offerId" column="offer_id" type="long">
    <generator class="increment"/> // This generates the primary key
    <property name="offerName" column="offer_name"/>

    Step 8. OFFER TABLE in your database

    create table OFFER ( offer_id number; offer_name varchar );

    Then start the server. Your SessionFactory is ready to serve.
    You can call HibernateUtil.getSession() to get session object and do your coding.
