Struts 2 Hibernate Integration Example [ Struts 2 + Hibernate Integration]

Hibernate » on May 13, 2012 { 59 Comments } By Sivateja

Let us see how to integrate struts 2 application with Hibernate, a real time application. Make sure you are well aware of the following topics before you read this article.

  • Static – Core
  • HQL – Hibernate
  • Taking separate bean to store the values – Struts

See,  my aim is to make SessionFactory as singleton.  As a programmer its our responsibulity to make SessionFactory as singleton,  People used to say HibernatePlugin plugin plugin bla bla., but all it could be is to make SessionFactory as singleton, and remaining is just struts only :-)

  53. Kanimozhi says:

    Respected Author!
    Your examples are extra-ordinary!
    only one point i would like to specify is please give comments in the code. you have implemented the code with Oracle as database. when we try with other database we feel difficult to follow! Please specify what software you have used for front end also. since we are using Netbeans I am unable to get .settings folder as you specified in your directory structure

  54. Kanimozhi says:

    Please do provide database name, table name and the fields to be created.

  55. Stephen says:
