BTW, if you do end up using version 2, don't refactor anything, it will really mess your code up. Since it needs to synchronize the JSPs, the backing beans, managed beans, etc, its all very buggy and will turn your configuration files and JSPs into spaghetti.
4) not used... but both NitroX (in its most expensive incarnaation) and Exadel have some Hibernate and Spring support

Alexander, I diagree with you that NitroX and Exadel supports are the same. Exadel offers the tool with very unique set of features that analyzes the class and database structure makes suggestions based on this knowledge. I do not thing anybody else, including original "Hibernate Tools" will be able to reach such functionality in the nearest future.
Usually, tool provides the graphic way to represent the XML structure and number of wizards that allow to populate this structure with data. From the marketing point of view, that is enough to say "we support something". It works in most ways. However, the real hiberate mapping is not easy stuff sometimes and it is possible to create the dead configuration with the wizards that operate correctly by themself.
