Do HibernateDaoSupport in spring require hibernate jar files for support
This is my first post.
I am a novice to spring. i am using spring 2.5. Using HibernateDaoSupport. My doubt is, do i still require Hibernate jar files for support of HibernateDaoSupport..
I did a sample example in netbeans. I unchecked the hibernate jar library. The application is still working. Is that correct working with HibernateDaoSupport class without using Hibernate jar files..
Thanks & Regards,

Hibernate is still required it makes it only easier to work with hibernate.
Just another note HibernateDaoSupport and HibernateTemplate should be considered deprecated as of hibernate 3.0.1 and you should preferably only implement plain hibernate daos (as recommended and explained in the reference guide).
