hibernate-core-4.1.9.Final.jaris same as hibernate.jar. Earlier version it used to be called as hibernate3.jar. Are both these two jars similar. Please advise

It is not possible to have the similar jars for different versions. You have two jars.. one is of version 3.6.4 and another is of 4.1.9. You can check the filesize of both the jars. To find the difference between both the jars for functional point of view, you will need to refer the release notes starting from 3.6.4 to 4.1.9.

Hope this explanation make sense.

Since Hibernate version 4 the "main" jar is named in this way - hibernate-core-4.1.9.Final.jar
See this link to find out which jars you need in order to use Hibernate 4.
yes, in Hibernate version 3 the name of the "main" jar was Hibernate3.jar
