I’ve put together a hybrid project from the following two tutorials, Java EE 5 MyBlog Application Demo and Java Persistence (Hibernate) and MyEclipse Spring Tools Tutorial.
I noticed that there’s not a single project in there that is a Web project and also uses JSF, Hibernate, Spring Framework and connects to a MySql database. I think this is a pretty popular combination.
WebChassis20.zip is the attached project file. It may be worth making into an example on demand (with animation) if you have the time. If not, I’d be happy to cut and paste the text from the other two tutorials into something.
