Hibernate plugins for Eclipse - which is best?

I am starting to play and experiment with Hibernate and I am wondering what is the best Eclipse plugin available for simplifying Hibernate? Are there any tools out that allow you to create the mapping files using a graphical interface (something like what TopLink has)? I took a look at one tool Hibern8IDE, is it any good and does it work with Eclipse?

I also took a look at Hibernate Synchronizer, but it looks like the creator has abandoned the project, is this the case? Also, is this plugin any good?

There are so many plugins out there that I figured I would ask here before spending too much time evaluating all of them.

Thanks for the help,
