Hibernate & Spring performance problem

I have application which is using Hibernate 3.2.5 and Spring 2.5 to connect to DB2 9.5 database.
Hibernate configuration is described in my Spring configuration file, so i am using Spring to get Hibernate Session Factory.
All transactions are managed declaratively through Spring AOP API (not through AspectJ annotations, all configuration is in XML file).

My application has a performance problem: beginning a Hibernate transaction takes a lot of time:

As you can see from the log file, just opening JDBC connection to begin Hibernate transaction takes more than two seconds!

Part of my Spring application context is described below:

Does anybody know, is there any way to make Spring & Hibernate to work faster? Maybe i must add something to Spring configuration file?

Thanks in advance!

Best regards, Vasily.

Thanks everybody, the problem is solved.

If somebody faces the same issue, stop using, because it doesn't support conection pooling. Use C3P0 instead to keep a pool of active JDBC connections, which can be used by Hibernate to begin transactions.

Best regards, Vasily.
