Hello again my fellow ranchers, I'm back again with another question...
It's possible to hibernate to get info from a table without doing a mapping cause that table's structure is unknown to the developer? (without going back to use native SQL)
without going back to use native SQL=old fashioned
That's what I wanted to say.
Thanks for your quick reply.

No, the mapping needs to exist.You can use Hibernate tools to generate mappings files or aonnotated classes from a database but this isn't really something you could do at runtime.
You don't however need to use Hibernate or native SQL to get information about a table. you can get that from godd old fashioned JDBC.
