loading mapping files dynamically

Hi,
I am using spring in the combination of hibernate. I have a lot of mapping files(*.hbm.xml) that is configured at the in the applicationContext.xml
Everything is working fine. Since all these files are loading at the startup it's consuming a lot of memory. In the development environment this is affecting very badly.
I want these files to be loaded only on demand except at the startup. How do i acheive this

Thanks,

In hibernate, the mapping files wont be loaded until you call
sf.buildSessionFactory() If you are using hibernate directly dont make this call until you need it.

If you are using containers such as Spring, then you can ask *Spring* to not initialise the bean until the bean is requested,

http://static.springframework.org/spring/docs/2.0.x/reference/beans.html#beans-factory-lazy-init

<bean id="lazy" class="com.foo.ExpensiveToCreateBean" lazy-init="true">
    <!-- various properties here... -->
</bean>
