Hibernate problem - No CurrentSessionContext configured

An error, "No CurrentSessionContext configured",  occured while executing the following method

Public static Session currentSession() {
try {
   System.out.println("HibernateUtil.currentSession() - start");
   return getSessionFactory().getCurrentSession();
} catch (HibernateException ex) {
   System.out.println("HibernateUtil.currentSession() - failed due to " + ex);
   throw ex;

I got the hibernate.cfg.xml file which resides in the Hibernate Home folder.
I have been trying for half an hour with no success.

Anyone who has any idea how to tackle this prblem, please advise.

What is ur configuration file.

How are you starting the application up?
If you use Hibernate in a managed environment (with JBoss or some other AS that Hibernate supoorts). Add this line to session-factory section:
<property name="hibernate.current_session_context_class">jta</property>
If you use Hibernate in a non-managed environment (standalone application with JDBC). Add this line
<property name="hibernate.current_session_context_class">thread</property>
