I have joined a new team, and their project is using pretty much exclusively legacy-style Hibernate Mapping files (
) for their Hibernate set-up. The current documentation pretty much seems to restrict itself to mention that Hibernate still supports hbm files and that they will take precedence over annotations.
Can someone please provide a link to documentation that mainly deals with Hibernate's legacy Mapping Files? (Even older versions of the doc only seem to mention them in passing?)
