An eclipse JSF/Hibernate application. I have classes whose data am able to insert/update to a DB if i call the necessary update/insert functions from a test class located in the src folder. But when i call the same update/insert functions from a JSF/JSP interface, i get the error:

SEVERE: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/hibernate/Session
javax.faces.el.EvaluationException: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/hibernate/Session
      at javax.faces.component.MethodBindingMethodExpressionAdapter.invoke(MethodBindingMethodExpressionAdapter.java:102)
      at com.sun.faces.application.ActionListenerImpl.processAction(ActionListenerImpl.java:102)

What should i do so that the same can work when called from a JSF/JSP interface? The necessary hibernate jar files are in a user library in the src folder.
