First: there's a licensing problem so, unless the ASF decides that 
distributing (L)GPL code is OK, you won't find code that depends on 
Hibernate in the Cocoon repository for the foreseeable future.

Second: even if it wasn't for the licensing problems, it's not that you 
can expect Cocoon to integrate every database access technology under 
the sun. Hibernate is just a Java library, so there's nothing stopping 
you from using it from whatever Cocoon component you like.

However, it seems that someone has already done something for you. You 
can find a Cocoon application that uses Hibernate here:

And if you happen to dislike Hibernate and would prefer OJB instead, 
there's a OJB block in the latest Cocoon release (2.1.5).

I think you have plenty of examples to look at.

Ever tried Google?
