The Hibernate Synchronizer editor is an XML editor that is aware of Hibernate parameters and provides code assist in 3 ways:

  • Node assist
  • Attribute assist
  • Attribute value assist

When saving your Hibernate mapping document with the editor, your code synchronization will autumatically be performed. If there are any errors in your document, you will be notified by an error marked being placed at the line number in question.

By default, the file extension that the editor binds to is *.hbm but that can be changed by clicking Window >> Preferences >> Workbench >> File Associations
