could you also help me please.
i am trying to insert data into the table by using hibernate 3 in netbeans 7.
hibernate.cfg.xml file is created in default package with following code snippet

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE hibernate-configuration PUBLIC "-//Hibernate/Hibernate Configuration DTD 3.0//EN" "">
<property name="hibernate.dialect">org.hibernate.dialect.MySQLDialect</property>
<property name="hibernate.connection.driver_class">com.mysql.jdbc.Driver</property>
<property name="hibernate.connection.url">jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/employee</property>
<property name="hibernate.connection.username">root</property>
<property name="hibernate.connection.password">admin</property>
<mapping resource="hibernate.hbm.xml"/>
<mapping resource="newHibernate.reveng1.xml"/>
<mapping resource="TestPackage/Emp.hbm.xml"/>

then i created the hibernate reveng xml file in default package

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE hibernate-reverse-engineering PUBLIC "-//Hibernate/Hibernate Reverse Engineering DTD 3.0//EN" "">
<schema-selection match-catalog="employee"/>
<table-filter match-name="emp"/>

after it i created the hibernate mapping files(Emp.hbm.xml) and POJOS from database( in another package named NewPackage

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE hibernate-mapping PUBLIC "-//Hibernate/Hibernate Mapping DTD 3.0//EN"

this.eno = eno;
this.ename = ename; = city;

this.ename = ename;
public String getCity() {

public void setCity(String city) { = city;
public Integer getBasic() {
return this.basic;

public void setBasic(Integer basic) {
this.basic = basic;



after it i created hibernate.hbm.xml

<class name="TestPackage.Emp" table="emp"/>
