I was trying to get the hibernate sample program running with Annotations. I got sample working fine when it is executed with a *.hbm.xml file. I minimized the usage of hbm.xml file. I get a error as mentioned below. Please check out the error and suggest me how to make it working.
Results with an error :

ERROR [STDERR] Initial SessionFactory creation failed.java.lang.ClassCastException: org.hibernate.validator.event.ValidateEventListener
