=============
I am using SPring Hibernate DAO and I am not sure how does this Dependency Injection work??

In my driver,
ClassPathResource classPathResource = new ClassPathResource("applicationContext.xml");
        XmlBeanFactory beanFactory = new XmlBeanFactory(classPathResource);
           
    ==>    EmployeeDaoImp employeeDao = (EmployeeDaoImp) beanFactory.getBean("employeeDao");

I get an error from here which says the sessionFactory class not be found when it gets referenced from EmployeeDao bean.

Wha does that mean??
can you help??

You need to add it to your classpath I guess.

if you are running this from Eclipse or any other IDE you should add the folder in which your applicationContext.xml exists to the classpath or in Eclipse as "class folder"
