I want to know in depth abt hibernate.In that article I read how to run it using Ant.I want to know how to run it without Ant and whether Eclipse/MyEclipse is compulsary for running hibernate?
Thank you.
Without using ANt,Eclipse,we can run the hybernate.
If u have java in your pc,that is enough to run the hybernate.

sample code

import org.hibernate.cfg.Configuration;
import org.hibernate.SessionFactory;
import org.hibernate.Session;
import org.hibernate.Transaction;
import pack.Student;

class StudentDB
public static void main(String[] args)
SessionFactory sessionFactory;
Session ses;
sessionFactory = new Configuration().configure().buildSessionFactory();
Transaction tx=ses.beginTransaction();
Student inf=new Student();
System.out.println("Record Added");
}catch(Exception e){
System.out.println("The Exception is :"+e);

Hello Mayuri,
yes u can write hibernnate program without using ANT.
U can use Eclipse ID or any other ID for better practice and run as java program.
u can run it using main method like simple java program
