    About loading of hibernate configuration in HibernateHelper.

    Que Pasa Newbie

      First, i want to sorry for my very intermediate english :)

      So... in jBPM config-file (jbpm.cfg.xml) exists a string

      when i try to execute this code

      JbpmContext jbpmContext = jbpmConfiguration.createJbpmContext();
       try {
       } finally {

      there exception throws with message Exception in thread "main" org.hibernate.HibernateException: /hibernate.cfg.xml not found.

      now see the full stack trace:

      Exception in thread "main" org.hibernate.HibernateException: /hibernate.cfg.xml not found
       at org.hibernate.util.ConfigHelper.getResourceAsStream(ConfigHelper.java:147)
       at org.hibernate.cfg.Configuration.getConfigurationInputStream(Configuration.java:1405)
       at org.hibernate.cfg.Configuration.configure(Configuration.java:1427)
       at org.jbpm.db.hibernate.HibernateHelper.createConfiguration(HibernateHelper.java:91)
       at org.jbpm.persistence.db.DbPersistenceServiceFactory.getConfiguration(DbPersistenceServiceFactory.java:69)
       at org.jbpm.persistence.db.DbPersistenceServiceFactory.getSessionFactory(DbPersistenceServiceFactory.java:91)
       at org.jbpm.persistence.db.DbPersistenceService.getSessionFactory(DbPersistenceService.java:95)
       at org.jbpm.persistence.db.DbPersistenceService.getSession(DbPersistenceService.java:99)
       at org.jbpm.persistence.db.DbPersistenceService.getGraphSession(DbPersistenceService.java:341)
       at org.jbpm.JbpmContext.getGraphSession(JbpmContext.java:571)
       at org.jbpm.JbpmContext.deployProcessDefinition(JbpmContext.java:173)
       at ru.emd.escom3.core.CoreTest.main(CoreTest.java:52)

      and the cause of this exception is that the HibernateHelper.java trying to use specified hibernate's config-file like a resource in the class path. Look here:

      public abstract class HibernateHelper {
       public static Configuration createConfiguration(String cfgXmlResource, String propertiesResource) {
       // if a special hibernate configuration xml file is specified,
       if (cfgXmlResource!=null) {
       // use the configured file name
       log.debug("creating hibernate configuration resource '"+cfgXmlResource+"'");
       } else {
       log.debug("using default hibernate configuration resource (hibernate.cfg.xml)");

      here we can see, that
      is called when config-file is a xml-file (it's my case).

      And the configuration is the instance of Configuration class (it is in hibernate source code), and method configure() of this class trying to load transmitted file-name like a resource.

      BUT MY hibernate.cfg.xml IS NOT A RESOURCE.

      It is an ordinary file on file system, and i have a question: how to use such hibernate's config-file in this case ?
