- Downloading the required software and integration into web application
In this section you will learn how to download required software for our
Login and Registration Application. In this tutorial we are using one of the
best technologies (Struts, Hibernate and Spring).
- Writing POJO and configuration files
We have only one table into the database and we need one POJO class and the
hibernate mapping file to map the login object to the database table.
