    Hibernate Tools 5.4.4 Hibernate 3.5 - Can’t open connection

    Juan Marchionatto Newbie

      Hi, I have a problem with Hibernate Tools 5.4.4.v20190328-1505


      I am trying to make Hibernate Console work on my new eclipse installation (Version: 2019-03 (4.11.0)).


      Exception is: org.hibernate.exception.JDBCConnectionException: Cannot open connection

      Caused by: java.sql.SQLException: No suitable driver found for jdbc:jtds:sqlserver://hidden-hostname:1433/hidden-db-name



      Now, the driver is in the connection classpath, and I know it is OK, because if I only change the hibernate version to 4.3 or later, it works. With 4.0 or less, same exception.


      I can’t just use it with version 4.3, because in my real configuration (many more mappings) I have all mapping files with 3.5 DTD and other characteristics not supported after 3.5 (LONG definitions, etc).


      I have used hibernate console since long ago. I have had little struggle to make configuration work on other plugin installations, but this time I am getting out of ideas..


      Previous working combination was not much older: eclipse Mars. 2 Release (4.5.2), same hibernate (3.5) Hibernate tools 5.0.1.Final-v20160331-1852-B88


      Can anybody help me to find out what could be generating the problem?


      Any information about some important changes between 5.0.1 and 5.0.4?


      Thank you in advance
