I have designed an interface using SWT in eclipse which has to pick up details from client table and user can enter the amount paid and save it back to database.

For designing the database and using hibernate do i need to use UML omondo first and then map the class using hibernate.

What is the right process. Is hibernate used only in web application or stand alone desktop java application also. Is there any plugins available for simplifying the process.I am using eclipse.

pls help me.

Thanks in advance

You could start of with the database design first. If you are using Hibernate each of your table would map to a class.

Hibernate can also be used in desktop stand alone apps. Hibernate apis are quite sufficient, you need not use any plugins for that purpose.

I agree. Here's the link:
