This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I am learning Hibernate, using Derby in server mode on a Win7 machine, developing with eclipse. Java 1.6, Hibernate 3.6, Derby 10.8.
I have written a simple Hibernate configuration and one annotation-mapped class, along with a basic DAO subclass and a class to create users in a user table. I have double-checked (at least) that I have the right schema name, and the record the program writes does actually go into the database. But I don't know where this error is coming from and I think I must have something slightly wrong because I don't see other people posting about it anywhere.
and the error log:
It is a longer post than I'm used to making, but I don't think there's a much smaller hibernate example to be had.
I'm stumped. I've looked into stackoverflow, derby fora, hibernate fora, I've added the schema name that someone thought was necesssary, I've cut it down from the 4 classes it used to have mapped, I've made a lazy-init-of-static of the SessionFactory, I do not know what else to try. Does anyone have any knowledge or even suggestions?

It turns out that Hibernate makes a determination of whether to look up certain database information in the database metadata, and if it can't it can run into this bug/feature. In version 3.x of Hibernate, there is an unpublicized property hibernate.temp.use_jdbc_metadata_defaults which, when set to false in the hibernate configuration, bypasses the check and so doesn't run into this. It doesn't happen in version 4.
Now if I can just figure out where to download version 4 of Hibernate, or whether the "full text search" version they have on their sourceforge site IS version 4 of hibernate, I'll be all set.
