Java.lang.SecurityException: class - Mismatch in signer information


Problem details :
[Java.lang.SecurityException: class "org.hibernate.cfg.AnnotationConfiguration"'s signer information does not match signer information of other classes in the same package]
This error occured when I transfering my xml based hibernate in to annotation based.
I used the class org.springframework.orm.hibernate3.annotation.AnnotationSessionFactoryBean instead of local session factorybean class. 

Detailed stack trace:

Trouble shooting:
While looking for the possible solution I came to know that this must be because of the jar version missmatch.


Solution
I removed the hibernate-3.3.2.GA_CP03.jar from library.


Added following jars in to the library

hibernate-3.2.3.ga
hibernate-annotations-3.3.0.ga
hibernate-commons-annotations-3.0.0.ga

So started working fine...
