Hi all ,
while integrating spring with hibernate, my spring configuration file is ::::

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<beans xmlns=""

<bean id="viewResolver" class="org.springframework.web.servlet.view.InternalResourceViewResolver">
<property name="viewClass" value="org.springframework.web.servlet.view.JstlView"/>
<property name="prefix" value="/"/>
<property name="suffix" value=".jsp"/>

<bean name="/login.htm" class="com.controllers.LoginController">
<property name="validator"><ref bean="loginValidator"/></property>
<property name="formView" value="LoginForm"></property>
<property name="successView" value="LoginSuccess"></property>
<property name="commandName" value="loginStudent"></property>
<property name="commandClass" value="com.bean.LoginStudent"></property>
<property name="sessionForm" value="true"></property>

<bean id="loginValidator" class="com.validate.LoginValidator"></bean>

<bean id="messageSource"
<property name="basename" value="messages">

<!-- ********************** DB (Hibernate) details ********************************* -->

<bean id="dataSource" class="org.springframework.jdbc.datasource.DriverManagerDataSource">
<property name="driverClassName" value="com.mysql.jdbc.Driver"></property>
<property name="password" value="admin"></property>
<property name="url" value="jdbc:mysql:///test"></property>
<property name="username" value="root"></property>

<bean id="ex_hibernateProperties" class="org.springframework.beans.factory.config.PropertiesFactoryBean">
<property name="properties">
<prop key="hibernate.dialect">org.hibernate.dialect.MySQLDialect</prop>
<prop key="">update</prop>
<prop key="hibernate.show_sql">true</prop>

<bean id="mySessionFactory" class="org.springframework.orm.hibernate3.LocalSessionFactoryBean">

Hello Indu,

You will have to mention the JDBC Connection details to hibernateProperties Bean definition, which will be used by LocalSessionFactoryBean.

Also, it depends on your type of transaction management you are trying to do!

Hope this helps.
