I agree that the dialect file should be included along with the many
others that are included.

Hibernate Tools requires you to configure a Hibernate installation. I just pointed to my
AS, but you can use a standalone if you want. From there I think the plug-ins load a
static set of jars from the installation you configured. We blow up because the classpath
defined by the plug-ins doesn't contain our dialect.
Mike-I think you could define this as a Tools defect if you say that Tools should allow
you to add a dialect.
Ramesh-The drivers are supplied by the DataTools ConnectionProfiles and Drivers that you
have to define before you use Hibernate, so drivers are a different issue, and not
something that the hibernate plug-ins have 'built in'. It's an configuration
step that's already extensible in a way that Dialects don't appear to be.
I'm personally in favor of including our dialect in Hibernate because then Tools will
just work, there won't be some additional step for Teiid. It seems to me that if
Oracle just works out of the box in Tools, then a fellow JBoss project should just work.
The only downside I can see to including our dialect in Hibernate is that our release
cycles don't match up and changes/maintenance would have to be managed across our
