I had faced a similar problem, does it say "Not Found" coming out from Hibernate log and then return a null for the SessionFactory?
Please help same problem which i am facing.Needed urgent help.
I followed the jboss doc at
and it seems that the doc is a little out-dated. The SessionFactory was not bound to the JNDI name.
Another thing I wonder is: the hibernate-service.xml only offers a certain number of configuration options for hibernate, what if I need to set other configuration options for Hibernate? Those that one usually set in the hinbernate.cfg.xml file?
