It seems I was barking up the wrong tree although I haven't resolved the problem.
signer information does not match signer information of other classes in the same package
seems to occur when digital signatures are involved it seems.
I have run jarsigner -verify on all jars within the classpath and none seemed to be signed so this doesnt appear to be the problem.
I have also moved the User class into a seperate package from the rest of the project and still get the same security exception, so am still kinda stuck on Chapter 1 of the book, very frustrating.
If anyone has had this problem could you please post a resolution.
Many Thanks Kevin.

In the end I used Maven 2 to solve the project dependencies and this has gottem me further along with the test example although I still have issues connecting to MySQL 5.1 at the moment.
For anyone else who comes across this problem here is the pom.xml file I used. The artifacts are all from my local drive and are from the latest versions of hibernate and MySql at the time of writing..
Hope this may help someone else from spending a week trying to rectify this problem when trying to do the first book example.
