While reading a post about Hibernate, I wanted to try installing it in Eclipse and test a mapping. Does anyone have any streamlined instructions or suggestions for getting Hibernate working in my system? I'm not looking to actively run it on a server so much as I am interested in eclipse plugins that validate Hibernate XML files with their associated classes.
If you want a self-contained example you might want to download the source code for my book. It uses maven2 as the build tool and so will automatically download all of the required Jars including HSQLDB (embedded Java DB).
