Hibernate Reverse Engineering Tutorial For Eclipse To Generate Java Classes From Oracle db

This tutorial will lays the ground work and help you learn how to generate your corresponding java entity classes from the database tables alone. Generating the java classes form the db schema via hibernate reverse engineering tools could save you tons of time if you're setting up a new project. I haven't rewritten the steps that's already published by someone, but I've organized them in a way that will be 'practically' helpful for any newbie who cannot get it right directly from the tutorials I've mentioned here. This is more of a kind a log of things I actually did while I referred these tutorials.

1. Download hibernate tools, only tools. From this tutorial in to install hibernate tools.

2. Create a java project 'HibernateExample'.

4. Select the jar file (ojdbc.jar) from lib folder of apache tomcat if required.

5. Click on 'Test Connection' and confirm that you've configured it properly.

6. Create the hibernate.cfg.xml. Enter the fields you know and leave the others blank.

7. Click Apply and then click 'OK' to close the dialog box.

8. Now in the hibernate perspective you can list out you database.

9.Choose "Hibernate Code Generation Configuration" from the tool bar. This is the phase where you generate the hibernate.reveng.xml file. Set-up a new hibernate.reveng.xml file. If you are new you could use the UI for specifying, otherwise you could write your own.
mine looks like

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE hibernate-reverse-engineering PUBLIC "-//Hibernate/Hibernate Reverse Engineering DTD 3.0//EN" "" >

  <table-filter match-schema="<DB-NAME>" match-name="<TABLE1>"/>
  <table-filter match-schema="<DB-NAME>" match-name="<TABLE2>"/>

10. In the Exporters tab specify the things (DAO, ENTITY etc) that you want to generate.

11. Click on the 'Run' button and you are done.

Things to Check When Changing DB

Make sure that u right click this file > 'Edit Configuration' and give the new db configuration in the appearing window.

Building Autonomous Drone with Raspberry Pi and APM 2.8

I am a total newbie to hardware and was pushing my limits to see how far I can reach on with hardware projects (which sparked my interest lately). I have set out on a very ambitions mission to control a drone from raspberry pi.I began the research for this around 2 months ago and had brought a raspberry pi, drone body kit and apm flight controller. The key difference of this project from common drone projects is that I'm trying to avoid the use of and RC and instead use the raspberry pi to control it. 

Hardware Installation Setup:
I am using APM 2.8 and Mission Planner.I am using RPi 3 to control the APM 2.8 via Telem port of APMI am planning to power the apm via the battery to ESC (Electronic Speed Controllers)

Now, documenting my steps below:
Day 1Watch TutorialTo get started with APM flight controller, I watched this video tutorial [1] which gives a gentle introduction about APM board.

ICFAI Sikkim Distance MBA Review From My Experience

After a long research I joined for the ICFAI distance MBA program in 2012. Now I've completed 2 semesters ( as of 2013 ). I wanted to write this review so that people who are looking for a good MBA program can get a hand-on review about the distance MBA offered by the ICFAI Sikkim. I've been through all the cycles of this program and this review might help you make the right choice about the program. This article presents my own ( and unbiased ) view of the program and is in no way associated with the course provider.

Only institutes and colleges affiliated to a University are required to take AICTE approval. So ICFAI be…

Is MacBook Air Good For Programming / Blogging ?

I'm a passionate java developer who just migrated from a Windows PC netbook ( Dell mini ) to a 13 inch MacBook Air. Before the netbook I owned a Dell inspirion 1501. I'm quite a bit of an avid blogger as well. I purchased Dell mini just as it was launched hoping that it's compact and mobile architecture would solve all of my need as a programmer and a writer. Unfortunately it turned out that it was a worthless device.The rest of the story goes...
