Adding Spring and Hibernate Capabilities

In this section we will add Spring and Hibernate Capabilities to our web application.

Adding Spring and Hibernate Capabilities

        

In this section we will add Spring and Hibernate Capabilities to our web application. So for this, we will have to add the spring and hibernate libraries and configuration files to the web application.

So, to integrate Hibernate and Spring frameworks with JSF framework we will have to make some changes and copy jar files related with the individual frameworks.

Steps to integrate:

Adding Servlets Library
Since we are using ant build tool to compile the application,  it is necessary to make servlets api library available to ant build tool for compiling the java code. We are adding Servlets library to the project.

  1. Create a directory named libext under web-inf directory of your application.
      
  2. Copy servletapi.jar from common\lib directory of your Tomcat into libext directory.

Adding Hibernate Libraries
Now we will download hibernate libraries and add it to the project.

  1. Download hibernate-3.2.4.sp1.zip or latest version from http://www.hibernate.org/6.html. We have downloaded hibernate-3.2.4.sp1.zip for this tutorial.
      
  2. Unzip the file.
      
  3. Copy all the jar files from hibernate-3.2.4.sp1\hibernate-3.2\lib into lib directory of your application. (The directories hibernate-3.2.4.sp1\hibernate-3.2 may be different in your case depending on the downloaded version).
      
  4. Copy hibernate3.jar from hibernate-3.2.4.sp1\hibernate-3.2 into lib directory of your application.

Adding Spring Libraries
Our application uses spring to manage the beans, so we have to add the spring capabilities to the application.

  1. Download spring-framework-2.0.5-with-dependencies.zip from http://www.springframework.org/download
      
  2. Extract the file.
      
  3. Copy spring.jar from spring-framework-2.0.5-with-dependencies\spring-framework-2.0.5\dist directory into lib directory of your application. 

Finally here is the list of jar files in our application's lib directory:

HibernateMyfaces\WEB-INF\lib
ant-1.6.5.jar
ant-antlr-1.6.5.jar
ant-junit-1.6.5.jar
ant-launcher-1.6.5.jar
ant-swing-1.6.5.jar
antlr-2.7.6.jar
asm-attrs.jar
asm.jar
c3p0-0.9.1.jar
cglib-2.1.3.jar
checkstyle-all.jar

jacc-1_0-fr.jar
javassist.jar
jaxen-1.1-beta-7.jar
jboss-cache.jar
jboss-common.jar
jboss-jmx.jar
jboss-system.jar
jdbc2_0-stdext.jar
jgroups-2.2.8.jar
jstl-1.1.0.jar
jta.jar
junit-3.8.1.jar
log4j-1.2.11.jar
myfaces-api-1.1.5.jar
myfaces-impl-1.1.5.jar
mysql-connector-java-3.0.16-ga-bin.jar
mysql-connector-java-3.1.6-bin.jar
oro-2.0.8.jar
oscache-2.1.jar
proxool-0.8.3.jar
spring.jar
swarmcache-1.0rc2.jar
syndiag2.jar
tomahawk-1.1.6.jar
versioncheck.jar
xerces-2.6.2.jar
xml-apis.jar

Now all the libraries are available with us in our application, we will now create database and tables in MySQL to use in our application.
