Does anyone have any documentation on how the Hibernate works? I installed it and am trying to use it, but I can't even really get started. I'm not sure what the functions of any of the tabs are, what the prerequisites are for using any of them, nor how to configure things to work. For example, I'm having database issues, but I can't tell if it's because it's having trouble connecting to the database (I can connect to the database through a straightforward JDBC connection, so it's not just that it's not available) or if it's because it's looking for something in the database that's not there.
I'd be happy just to be able to use Ant with Hibernate, i.e. to start with hbm.xml files, create database schema and beans from that, and be able to use those beans to handle the data. But I can't seem to get that going either. Does anyone have a simple example (just some kind of "hello world") of how do this full Hibernate build from Ant in IntelliJ?
That or docs on the Hibernate plugin would be great. Hibernate sounds really terrific and should help solve many of my persistent data storage issues, but I'm having a very hard time getting my Hibernate development work off the ground.
ANY help or hints that you have would be greatly appreciated. I'll assemble anything I get and repost.
