SessionFactory sessionFactory = new Configuration().configure().buildSessionFactory();

The above code does the following:
1- Instantiate a configuration object, which allows the application to specify properties and mapping documents.
2- Use the mapping and properties specified in a resource called 'hibernate.cfg.xml' to configure hibernate.
3- Instantiate a new SessionFactory using the the property file used in step 2.
4- Return a SessionFactory object, which is used to create database sessions, transactions, etc.
