Hi Jay,

Thanks very much for the jar file.  That helped a great deal.

I'm stuck...

The deployment plan uses the Derby database.  I'm using Oracle.  I've

(thin driver) database pool that jar.

This class is in the oracle jar, but I think the geronimo deployment plan is

Can you give me some pointers/examples of setting up a deployment plan to
use hibernate and oracle?
