I have this line of code loading my hibernate.cfg.xml file

SessionFactory sessionFactory = new Configuration().setProperty("hibernate.show_sql", "true").configure("order_mod\\hibernate.cfg.xml").buildSessionFactory();
           
When i run this in my IDE Netbeans it works find however when i tried to run this from the jar file outside of the IDE through the command line java -jar order_mod.jar it gave me an error saying it could not find order_mod\\hibernate.cfg.xml

The directory of my jar file is as follows

Order_Mod.jar
  -order_mod(package)
    -someclass.java
    -someclass_Where_Hibernate_Is_Run_And_Above_Line_Of_Code_Is_Called.java
    -hibernate.cfg.xml

try:

SessionFactory sessionFactory = new Configuration().setProperty("hibernate.show_sql", "true").configure("/order_mod/hibernate.cfg.xml").buildSessionFactory();

or

SessionFactory sessionFactory = new Configuration().setProperty("hibernate.show_sql", "true").configure("hibernate.cfg.xml").buildSessionFactory();

objects-
  That solved my problem thanks

Ajay-
  I don't really understand what you mean if order_mod(the package) is inside my jar, then wouldn't that be inside the classpath?
