I'm trying to get a project working with the above. When I run the hibernate3:hbm2cfgxml goal, I get two stack traces: The topline of the first is: 'org.hibernate.exception.GenericJDBCException: Getting database metadata'
The topline of the second is: 'Caused by: java.sql.SQLException: Access denied for user 'rogergraham'@'localhost' (using password: YES)'
I do not understand what to put for hibernate.connection.username and hibernate.connection.password.
I have to sudo to run mysql (where it runs as root: yes I know this is bad, but I'm just starting with the Mac so please be forgiving!) But even if I put the root username/password combination in, I get the same error.
Is there something I'm missing here? When you have a JDBC connection and supply the username/password, this is the combination that is set on the database instance itself, right? I'm very confused...
We have a special forum for ORM. Since this is about Hibernate and not pure JDBC, I'm moving it there. This question does pertain to a bunch of technologies though. If the conversation shifts back to JDBC (or Maven) someone can move it again. For now, I think you will get the most help in the ORM forum.
