Need some help to use Hibernate Plug-in


I am New to hibernate, and wish to use it using IDEA plug-in, when I start IDEA and click on Hibernate Tools, it opens GUI Hibernate Tools, when I click on 'reverse generator'/'schema export/updtae', it has Dropdown box fro database connection with no entry? How can I populate this OR which is the BEST way to use the tool.

your help will be appreciated.

Go into your project properties, and in the button bar on the left there will be a new button for Hibernate. Click on that button and you'll see the criteria for setting up a database connection so that the reverse generator/schema browser works.

Just as a hint, choose your DB connection type (such as cirrus.hibernate.Oracle) before entering any information, as it will prefill some of the fields with shell entries to edit.
