[SOLVED] java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: Lorg/hibernate/cache/CacheProvider

If you are trying to setup your project/ or adding dependency for hibernate 4 then you might face this error in your server logs.

Stack-trace will be looking like this:

Caused by: org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanCreationException: Could not autowire field: private org.hibernate.SessionFactory com.howtodoinjava.dao.EmployeeDaoImpl.sessionFactory; nested exception is java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: Lorg/hibernate/cache/CacheProvider;

Solution:
Reason is that you have incompatible jar’s versions in your application classpath. To resolve this issue, make sure you have compatible jars.

Sample configuration for hibernate 4 will be as below.

<bean id="sessionFactory"
	class="org.springframework.orm.hibernate4.LocalSessionFactoryBean">
	<property name="dataSource" ref="dataSource" />
	<property name="configLocation">
		<value>classpath:hibernate.cfg.xml</value>
	</property>
	<property name="hibernateProperties">
		<props>
			<prop key="hibernate.dialect">${jdbc.dialect}</prop>
			<prop key="hibernate.show_sql">true</prop>
		</props>
	</property>
</bean>

A complete usage of this solution can be looked at: Spring 3 + Hibernate Integration
