If we are talking the hibernate-core module for now (other modules are  
structured). The easiest way to specify your database settings is to edit  
This will also allow you to run the test easily in your IDE.

There are two main test 'areas' - src/test and src/matrix. The former  
contains functional unit tests either
database independent or running against H2. The latter is for tests which  
should run against multiple
databases. I would assume your test belongs in there. Using matrix  
infrastructure you can
run all your tests against a given database by following the instructions  
in the readme of

There are several wiki pages here -  
but admittedly some of them would need some updates.

Hope this helps,
