Never Mind!!! I had copied a hibernate.cfg.xml from the Hibernate distribution and the configuration file had the property hibernate.hbm2dll.auto set to create-drop. I commented out this property and it worked.
Hello, I'm working through the examples in the book, "Hibernate Made Easy". I'm having some odd behavior with the example.
Essentially, I have two simple classes outlined below. One is an Annotated Entity class and the other is a simply example that will allow you to create a User record and retrieve it. The create works, however the retrieve is deleting all the records from the corresponding table. I know the code in the book uses Hibernate 3.5, but I didn't think it would be this much of a difference. Can anyone help me understand why? I commented the line that is causing the problem in the second class below. I used debug through Eclipse to find out which statement was deleting all the records.
This is my persisted object.
This is the example class that executes attempts to create a copy of my object in the MySql database and retrieve it for display.
