Where did you copy the hibernate.cfg.xml from to insert it into your posting?

This could be wrong. But i'm not sure that you didn't copy the file out of a browser that uses folding for xml-files...

yes i did copied the xml file that i found in hibernate project folder and altered it .
thanks for your concern but i did solved my problem later realizing my mistake..

i want you to help me out in another problem which i couldn't understand why it is happening..i'm a newbie to hibernate so please do help me out in this...

after inserting the values into the database...i found that the fields are arranged in vertical order but not in horizontal way,something like this..

SQL> select * from userdetails
2 ;








can you explain how to get rid out of this weird look..

That's not a problem of hibernate or your application, that's a problem of your SQL-client. If you are using Oracle that's SQLPlus. It has a command "set linesize" to - well quite obvious - set the linesize. E.g. "set linesize 200" to have a linesize of 200. If you are running SQLPLus via cmd.exe make sure that the window buffer of the cmd-window is set same. SQLplus runs into that "problem" because your field username or userid are defined e.g. as VARCHAR2(150) and SQLplus "reserves" that size in the output and ignores the real size of the values. (It cannot do something like "trim" because when starting to spool the maximum length of all the entries inside the table isn't know...)

That's Oracle's recycle bin. Try Google with "purge oracle recycle bin" as I don't know the correct syntax. (Usually our DBA cleans up from time to time...)

thank you sir ...
all my doubts are cleared now...
to drop those tables, the syntax we need to use is "purge recyclebin" .
thanks again for posting replies to me.
