Download bundles are available from SourceForge in both ZIP and TGZ formats.

Download latest version Hibernate 4.0.1 in Zip format
Download latest version Hibernate 4.0.1 in TGZ format

You can also download the older version Hibernate 3.0 as below

There are two ways you can download and obtain latest Hibernate version 3.

  1. Release Bundle Downloads
  2. Maven Repository Artifacts

1. For downloading Release bundles (recommended) follow the steps.

The Hibernate team provides release bundles hosted on the SourceForge File Release System, in ZIP and TGZ formats. Each release bundle containsJARs, documentation, source code, and other information.

You can download releases of Hibernate, in your chosen format, from the list at http://sourceforge.net/projects/hibernate/files/hibernate3/ .

  • hibernate3.jar is an aggregation of all the Hibernate Core classes. This must be included in your project's classpath.
  • The lib/required/ directory contains JARs Hibernate requires. All the jars in this directory must also be included in your project's classpath as well.
    Important :
    The slf4j JAR has additional requirements for it to function properly. The exact requirements depend on your logging back-end. See slf4j site for details.
  • The /lib/jpa/ directory contains the JPA API JAR. This JAR needs to be in your project's classpath if you want to use the JPA APIs or JPA annotations.

2. Maven Repository Artifacts

Note
The authoritative repository for Hibernate artifacts is the JBoss Maven repository. The team responsible for the JBoss Maven repository maintains a number of Wiki pages that contain important information.
Maven Repository Wiki Pages

  • http://community.jboss.org/docs/DOC-14900 - General information about the repository.
  • http://community.jboss.org/docs/DOC-15170 - Information about setting up the JBoss repositories in order to do development work on JBoss projects themselves.
  • http://community.jboss.org/docs/DOC-15169 - Information about setting up access to the repository to use JBoss projects as part of your own software.

Hibernate produces a number of artifacts (all under the org.hibernate groupId):

Hibernate Artifacts under groupId org.hibernate

hibernate-core
The main artifact, which contains all the Hibernate classes, in packageorg.hibernate. You need these to build applications using the native Hibernate APIs. It includes capabilities for using native Hibernate mapping in hbm.xml files, as well as annotations.

hibernate-entitymanager
Represents Hibernate's implementation of JPA, as specified at http://jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=317.

This artifact depends on hibernate-core

hibernate-envers
An optional module that provides historical auditing of changes to your entities.

This artifact depends on both hibernate-core and hibernate-entitymanager.

hibernate-c3p0
Provides integration between Hibernate and the C3P0 connection pool library. See http://sourceforge.net/projects/c3p0/ for information about C3P0.

This artifact depends on hibernate-core, but is generally included in a project as a runtime dependency. It pulls in the C3P0 dependencies automatically.

hibernate-proxool
Provides integration between Hibernate and the Proxool connection pool library. See http://proxool.sourceforge.net/ for more information about this library.

This artifact depends on hibernate-core, but is generally included in a project as a runtime dependency. It pulls in the Proxool dependencies automatically..

hibernate-ehcache
Privides integration between Hibernate and EhCache, as a second-level cache. See http://ehcache.sourceforge.net/ for more information aboutEhCache.

This artifact depends on hibernate-core, but is generally included in a project as a runtime dependency. It pulls in the Ehcache dependencies automatically.

hibernate-infinispan
Provides integration between Hibernate and Infinispan, as a second-level cache. See http://jboss.org/infinispan for more information about Infinispan.

This artifact depends on hibernate-core, but is generally included in a project as a runtime dependency. It pulls in the Infinispan dependencies automatically.

hibernate-jbosscache
Provides integration between Hibernate and JBossCache, as a second-level cache. See http://jboss.org/jbosscache for information about JBossCache.

This artifact depends on hibernate-core, but is generally included in a project as a runtime dependency. It pulls in the JBossCache dependencies automatically.

hibernate-oscache
Provides integration between Hibernate and OSCache as a second-level cache. See http://www.opensymphony.com/oscache/ for information about OSCache.

This artifact depends on hibernate-core, but is generally included in a project as a runtime dependency. It pulls in the OSCache dependencies automatically.

hibernate-swarmcache
Provides integration between Hibernate and SwarmCache, as a second-level cache. See http://swarmcache.sourceforge.net/ for more information about SwarmCache.

This artifact depends on hibernate-core, but is generally included in a project as a runtime dependency. It pulls in the SwarmCache dependencies automatically.
