    I think it can't connect to hibernate database, you've probably missed some step during the configuration for postgres ...

    1) put postgres jdbc driver in Pentaho webapp lib
    2) set connection parameters to hibernate and quartz in META-INF/context.xml
    3) in pentaho-solution/system/hibernate/hibernate-settings.xml: <config-file>system/hibernate/postgresql.hibernate.cfg.xml</config-file> (if hibernate is on postgres)
    4) in pentaho-solution/system/hibernate/postgresql.hibernate.cfg.xml: set connection parameters to hibernate
    5) in pentaho-solution/system/simple-jndi/ set connection parameters to hibernate

    I've been working on this problem for about a week. Finally figured it out. I was getting the NoClassDefFoundError: HibernateUtil.class when deploying on WebLogic and Oracle DB backend. Turns out it had nothing to do with the Oracle backend, I tried deploying with the default HSQLDB backend, and got the same error.

    Turns out it had to do with WebLogic and class loading based on the tip from:

    The trick for me was to add a weblogic.xml file to the WEB-INF directory with the contents:
    After seeing too many threads with this same question and no answer, I decided I owe it to whatever future soul tries to deploy Pentaho on WebLogic.

    Further details: I just used the 3.10 manual release and built it using the ant jboss-no-portal target. WebLogic Oracle 11g. Following the steps to use Oracle Backend as stated here:

    I also created the hibernate and quartz Data Sources in WebLogic, although I'm not sure if that was necessary.
