Note that I must to declare my entity User (and others ones). I'd like just indicate the entities package like a scan.
How can I do?
If you mean that you want your entities to be scanned in from some Java class rather than mentioning each entity in the persistence.xml file, then I suggest you take a look at org.hibernate.cfg.Configuration#addAnnotatedClass(Class annotatedClass). You will have a HibernateUtil class where you initiate the sessionFactory object, so make changes something like this

The JPA spec explains which classes are scanned for annotations. Section 188.8.131.52 to be precise in JPA 2 spec. To summarize:
The set of managed persistence classes that are managed by a persistence unit is defined by using one or more of the following:
- Annotated managed persistence classes contained in the root of the persistence unit (unless the exclude-unlisted-classes element is specified)
- One or more object/relational mapping XML files
- One or more jar files that will be searched for classes
- An explicit list of classes
Take a look at the xsd of persistence.xml, especially the jar-file element where you can specify additional jars (that are in the classpath) for annotation scanning.
