I wrote a pojo class say it Employee.java

package org.emp;
public class Employee {

private String empid;

private String empName;

private String address;

public String getAddress() {
return address;

public void setAddress(String address) {
this.address = address;

public String getEmpid() {
return empid;

public void setEmpid(String empid) {
this.empid = empid;

public String getEmpName() {
return empName;

public void setEmpName(String empName) {
this.empName = empName;

Now i want to generate hbm file for this pojo file.

how??? using Xdoclet?

Thanks in advance.....

Well, if you used JPA annotations, you wouldn't even need an hbm file! Here's a simple example of a User, as opposed to an Employee, decorated with JPA annotations:

Mapping Columns and POJO Attributes with Hibernate and JPA

And actually, many of those annotations aren't needed, as the @Column mappings have defaults that are reasonable.

You could actually simplify it as much as this?

So, why not just use JPA annotations instead?

Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
