Here is my Person.hbm.xml file
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE hibernate-mapping PUBLIC
"-//Hibernate/Hibernate Mapping DTD 3.0//EN"
"http://hibernate.sourceforge.net/hibernate-mapping-3.0.dtd" >

<hibernate-mapping>

<class name="Person" table="person" >

<property name="person_ID" type="java.lang.String" column="ID" />
<property name="typeOfPerson" type="java.lang.String" column="type" />
<property name="FirstName" type="java.lang.String" column="firstname" />
<property name="LastName" type="java.lang.String" column="Lastname"/>

<property name="officeDay" type="java.lang.String" column="officeDay"/>
<property name="officeTime" type="java.lang.String" column="officeTime"/>

</class>

</hibernate-mapping>


Any help greatly appreciated.

This error happens at startup, not insert time, and yes, the mapping file should be corrected by adding an <id>.
