Eclipse + Maven + project structure
The next thing you need to add here is three files: applicationContext.xml, spring-servlet.xml and web.xml. Now, you should edit these files if you want to run the project. I am not going to post the code that you need to add in these files, but you can download my project from: https://github.com/nikolatodorovic/spring_hibernate_mysql_maven_tomcat and you can see the content of these files. There are plenty of explanations about these files on the Internet and it would be probably good to read them.
The last thing, but maybe the most important is to configure pom.xml file. It is the main file for Maven and it contains information about the project and configuration details that Maven uses to build the project. In this file, you are telling Maven to use Spring and other tools. Therefore you don't need to download anything about Spring or Hibernate, only you need to do is to configure this file and Maven will do it for you. Again, I won't post code here, you should download it and copy/past from my project. Every other explanation about this you can find across the Internet.
Maven build + Tomcat
Now we have WAR file and we need to start Tomcat instance so that we can deploy this WAR file to that instance. You can copy and past this WAR file in the folder: 'tomcat_home\webapps' but don't do that. Every time you make some change on any file inside your project, you need to stop Tomcat instance, do another Maven build, copy/past new WAR file in this location and start Tomcat instance again. This is really pain in the ass... Instead of that, you should configure your Tomcat so it can read your files from your workspace. And if you do that, when you modify something in your JSP while your Tomcat instance is running you even don't need to stop that instance, do another Maven build and start Tomcat again. You just need to refresh your browser to see those changes. This procedure saves time incredibly! And it is very easy to accomplish this, you need to create one XML file with the name of your project, put it in: 'tomcat_home\conf\Catalina\localhost' and insert this code in the file:
Of course, you need to set your own path. By doing this, you are telling Tomcat where is located your source folder with JSP files, CSS files, JS files... When you do that you only need to restart Tomcat if you make some changes on the back-end, not on the front-end.
Now this is the time to test if this is working. If you did everything correct, when you enter your project name in the browser, your login page should be displayed. You can change some text in that file so you can test if refreshing of the browser displays changes on that page.
Hibernate + mySql
After you created database, you need to configure pom.xml file so you can use Hibernate in your project. If you copied my pom file, you should be fine. At the end you have to create hibernate.cfg.xml file under 'src/main/resources' and copy/past content from my project. Now it is all set up for using Hibernate and you can create model classes, DAO classes and service classes. This is a very good procedure how you can organize your code, but you can organize it anyway you like.
