Hi,

Below is the code given for HibernatePlugIn where the error is coming.

public class HibernatePlugIn implements PlugIn {

private String _configFilePath = "/WEB-INF/classes/hibernate.cfg.xml";

public static final String SESSION_FACTORY_KEY = SessionFactory.class.getName();

private SessionFactory _factory = null;

public void init(ActionServlet servlet, ModuleConfig config)
throws ServletException {
File file = new File(_configFilePath);

Configuration configuration = null;
URL configFileURL = null;
ServletContext context = servlet.getServletContext();

String file_configFilePath = context.getRealPath(_configFilePath);


try {

configFileURL = HibernatePlugIn.class.getResource(file_configFilePath);

configuration = (new Configuration()).configure(configFileURL); // java.lang.NullPointerException occurs in this line(Line no:69)
_factory = configuration.buildSessionFactory();

// Set the factory into session
context.setAttribute(SESSION_FACTORY_KEY, _factory);

} catch (HibernateException e) {
System.out.println("Error while initializing hibernate: "
+ e.getMessage());
e.printStackTrace(System.out);
}catch(Exception e) {
e.printStackTrace(System.out);
}
}

Below is the exception comes while starting the tomcat. I am using the Netbeans as IDE.
I tried it on tomcat 6.0 and tomcat 5.5. But in both the cases, I got the same error.
I am getting "configFileURL " parameter as null everytime.

I am fed up with this error. Everytime, I start the tomcat this error comes and my application does not start.

I don't get the URL or FILE object from the resource of hibernate.cfg.xml file. After that only, i proceed further to get the sessionfactory from this URL or FILE.

Please help me out in this situation.

Thanks and Regards
Neeraj

Please do not cross-post the same question in multiple forums. It wastes people's time when multiple redundant conversations take place. Please read this for more information.
