Hi all,
I am new to Hibernate. I am entangled with Collection-Mappping.I need some good tutorial having complete example program on Collection Mapping.

Also, i tried the following to test Collection mapping.

I wrote the following POJO class:


I wrote the following class to persist an object of type Book into the MYSQL database running on local host:




The following is the content of my mapping file:



When run the second program, i am getting the following output:
log4j:WARN No appenders could be found for logger (org.hibernate.cfg.Environment).
log4j:WARN Please initialize the log4j system properly.
null
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NullPointerException
at roseindia.tutorial.hibernatecollection.BookInsert.main(BookInsert.java:52)

The line where the NullPointerException took place corresponds to:

session.flush();

Kindly let me know where i could have gone wrong.

So you are trying to flush a session that is null. So I would assume that something has gone wrong in these two lines:

What other exception messages do you have in your log? Has the SessionFactory been properly configured? Is the DataSource valid and can you connect to the database.

As far as finding tutorials on collection mapping, might I suggest my own?

I've got some very simple and straight forward examples on how to map one to one, one-to-many and many-to-many associations. Many people have found these tutorials very helpful.
