Hi All,
I've made a simple "Hello World" app with Hibernate Annotations.
I'm struck at getting a SessionFactory. Ive tried bothe the code fragments.

Approach 1 -

Here, I get a runtime error saying:
[java] at hello.HelloWorld.main(Unknown Source)
[java] Caused by: org.hibernate.MappingException: An AnnotationConfiguratio
n instance is required to use <mapping class="hello.Message"/>

Approach 2 -

Here I get compilation error saying that AnnotationConfiguration class not found. Whereas I've included the following packages:
import org.hibernate.*;
import org.hibernate.cfg.*;
import javax.persistence.*;

Any help shall be highly appreciated.
