I get the following exception

From the error:

It looks like you have a problem with one of the many-to-one mappings you have specified in your Hibernate configuration (one of the Hibernate XML mapping files). You'll have to enable logging or set a breakpoint in a debugger to figure out which one it is. Hope that helps!

It was that indeed! I checked every many-to-one mapping and I found the error. Nevertheless, I have found other errors. How do I do to set a breakpoint to have a better understanding of each error, or how do I enable logging? Thank you.

Well, setting up a breakpoint depends on your IDE - simply run your app in debug mode (or use the JVM's remote debugging features to attach to a running JVM). Logging can be enabled using log4j and enabling logging at the org.hibernate (or deeper) level.

I'm using Eclipse IDE and setting a breakpoint and debugging java code is straight forward, I didn't know how to see errors at Hibernate level, I have activated Log4j as a debug alternative and I have a better perspective now. Thanks.

Though I have activated log4j I still can't determine what line or mapping has each error for example as I have configured default-access=method for each attribute in a class it says in the last exception I've gotten that there is a mapping that can't find its corresponding method to access the property to find this error I have to test each bean to see its methods or switch to property access, as you can see it would be better if I were told the exact mapping or line or *.hbm.xml where the error is. Is this possible?
