Java - Hibernate java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError

Category Java

I've been working through the Hibernate Tutorial provided by Netbeans but whenever I tried running the program I end up with a java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError. Anyone have any ideas about what's wrong?

Answers

There are 3 suggested solutions here and each one has been listed below with a detailed description. The following topics have been covered briefly such as Java, Hibernate, Netbeans. These have been categorized in sections for a clear and precise explanation.

Look at:

Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: 
    Could not load requested class : com.mysql.jdbc.Driver

It probably means you don't put the MySQL's driver in classpath.

So, download the jar and add it.

Obs: For Glassfish, like the tutorial you following, put the mysql-connector-java-*-bin.jar in the yourdomain/lib directory of your installation.


46

The translator factory class used in Hibernate 4 is bundled with the IDE.

So, -->Click Add under the Miscellaneous Properties node and select hibernate.query.factory_class in the Property Name dropdown list.

-->Type org.hibernate.hql.internal.classic.ClassicQueryTranslatorFactory as the Property Value. *//do not select **org.hibernate.hql.classic.ClassicQueryTranslatorFactory as the Property Value in the dialog box.***

It can be that on your hibernate configuration file mapping you have something like this <mapping class="com.mysql.jdbc.Driver" /> so this means that when the session is about to be created,it load that class name of which that is not a class ,it is driver name for mysql.

Try changing it to <mapping class="packageName.ClassName" /> the class name is the one annotated as an entity.
