If you see below exception when try to perform CRUD operation using hibernate:

WARNING: Could not bind factory to JNDI
javax.naming.NoInitialContextException: Need to specify class name in environment or system property, or as an applet parameter, or in an application resource file:  java.naming.factory.initial
	at javax.naming.spi.NamingManager.getInitialContext(Unknown Source)

Solution: This happens due to name attribute in session-factory tag in hibernet.cfg.xml file below:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE hibernate-configuration PUBLIC
		"-//Hibernate/Hibernate Configuration DTD 3.0//EN"
		"http://hibernate.sourceforge.net/hibernate-configuration-3.0.dtd">
<hibernate-configuration>
    <session-factory name="sessionFactory">
        <property name="hibernate.connection.driver_class">com.mysql.jdbc.Driver</property>
        <property name="hibernate.connection.password">admin</property>
        <property name="hibernate.connection.url">jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/JavaHonk</property>
        <property name="hibernate.connection.username">root</property>
        <property name="hibernate.default_schema">JavaHonk</property>
        <property name="hibernate.dialect">org.hibernate.dialect.MySQLDialect</property>

         <property name="show_sql">true</property>
        <mapping resource="Address.hbm.xml"></mapping>
    </session-factory>
</hibernate-configuration>

 

  • Remove name attribute from session-factory tag and run code again. This should resolve the issue.
