Sometime, you may want to have your own Hibernate entity and dao to access extra database table in your plugin. It is very simple to achieve that by adding the following file and class to your plugin.
Similar to development in Spring + Hibernate, a application context file is required for your plugin. In my sample plugin, I created a productsApplicationContext.xml as below

Next, we need a Hibernate Mapping file. In my sample plugin, it is /org/joget/sample/products/model/Products.hbm.xml. It mapped the POJO "org.joget.products.model.Product" with "valu_products" table.
You need a utility class to initialized your application context and allow you to retrieve the bean object.

In this KB:sample plugin, you are able to add, delete and list product by the following JSON API.
To list all products,
