Hmmm. Actually we have no way of supplying Jars to plugins anymore. This poses a problem for the Hibernate tools plugin. This will need investigation :(

You could (in theory) add a JAR to the plugin module where it is installed:


and also add that jar as a resource in the module.xml file


That should do it, sorry it's not easier :(

Hi Lincoln,

Thanks for the prompt reply. Don't you jboss devs ever sleep :)

I am using forge-1.0.0.Beta2 and hibernate-tools-plugin:1.0.0-SNAPSHOT

The java.runtime.version: 1.6.0_26-b03-384-10M3425 (running on a Mac Pro)

Also I had to create the lib directory under $FORGE_HOME/. It was not available by default. Wonder if I need to config anything to make it part of the classpath.

Hi Travis,

Sorry you are having trouble with this. Which version of Forge and the plugin are you using?

Does anyone else get this error when they run generate-entities

SLF4J: Failed to load class "org.slf4j.impl.StaticLoggerBinder".
SLF4J: See for further details.
***ERROR*** [generate-entities] org/slf4j/impl/StaticLoggerBinder

I have been checking all the user forums and have copied the slf4j-jdk14-1.5.8.jar to $FORGE_HOME/lib in addition to copying the jdbc driver. But I still keep getting this error.

I even copied the other SLF4J implementation jars ( only one at a time) but it did not help.

I haven't found anyone else having this issue so was wondering if I am doing something incorrect and if anyone could give some tips would be great.
