Hello All,

I want to know what is the procedure to make hibernate and web services work together.I am using netbeans IDE with Glassfish.I am not getting where to put my hibernate.cfg.xml and .hbm files so that my web service can access them.I tried a lot of search but found nothing complete.Any help in this direction is appreciated.

Thanks in Advance

Those are two different stacks.

Once your web service has defined it's contract (wsdl), it is up to you to integrate the request and response
processing with the DB layer via some form of DAO pattern.

In your case, the service layer would access a DAO intermediate layer, generate value objects and have them
converted to SOAP XML to return to the client.

Can you please elaborate on the same or suggest me a link to some example (so that I can develop my web service accordingly) ?

Thank you

Apparently you did not understand the answer. Your DAO layer will be completely independent of the web service. You can develop it and test it separately. Information on DAOs is readily available on the web.
