public class ContactManager {

public static void main(String[] args) {
// loads configuration and creates a session factory
Configuration configuration = new Configuration().configure();
ServiceRegistryBuilder registry = new ServiceRegistryBuilder();
ServiceRegistry serviceRegistry = registry.buildServiceRegistry();

// opens a new session from the session factory
Session session = sessionFactory.openSession();

// persists two new Contact objects
