Hi, I am currently developing a admin console for my project. For that I am required to create databases and tables in that databases. I am using JavaServerFaces with Hibernate to achieve the task. My problem is that I can't find a way to create databases using hibernate. As I have read, I can certainly create tables in the (already created) database using SchemaExport utility, but I didn't find any material to create database using hibernate. Please help!!! -Raj
You're right Raj, Hibernate just creates tables over an existing database. If you need to create the database too, you should think on a work around, may be call a stored procedure from your DBA, do it manually or something like that.
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
