Thanks In Advance:'(

Did you included the driver jar file in your class path ...?Secondly, which class of driver you are using Type2 or Type3 or type 4 ...? If you didn't specified then go to environemnt variable and in classpath variable add the path of your jar file.

waiting for your reply

First thing it depends on your configuration, type of driver you are using and all .You can set your properties like this :

Scenerio #1 : Direct JDBC Connection:
If you wish to use a straight JDBC connection then you define the following properties in the hibernate.properties file:

[INDENT]hibernate.connection.driver_class= org.postgresql.Driver[/INDENT][INDENT]hibernate.connection.url=jdbc:postgresql://localhost/mydatabase[/INDENT][INDENT]hibernate.connection.username = myuser[/INDENT][INDENT]hibernate.connection.password=secrethibernate.c3p0.min_size=5[/INDENT][INDENT]hibernate.c3p0.max_size=20[/INDENT][INDENT]hibernate.c3p0.timeout=1800[/INDENT][INDENT]hibernate.c3p0.max_statements=50[/INDENT][INDENT]hibernate.dialect= net.sf.hibernate.dialect.PostgreSQLDialec[/INDENT]

Scenerio #2 : Datasource Connection Pool:
To use a connection pool from an external vendor specify the following properties in the hibernate.properties file:

[INDENT]hibernate.connection.datasource=java:/comp/env/jdbc/MyDB[/INDENT][INDENT]hibernate.transaction.factory_class=\net.sf.hibernate.transaction.JTATransactionFactory[/INDENT][INDENT]hibernate.transaction.manager_lookup_class=\net.sf.hibernate.transaction.JBossTransactionManagerLookup[/INDENT]

[INDENT]hibernate.dialect=\net.sf.hibernate.dialect.PostgreSQLDialect[/INDENT]

In scenario 2 define your JDBC resource in the Application Server (For ex : JBoss-Tomcat-Catalina container (server.xml) ) and reference it via the hibernate.properties file.

As i mentioned it depends on your configuration and requirment. If you have any other issues then post here. I'll help you out.
