Bummer: The `connection.driver_class` property element is missing or doesn't have the correct value.

<property name="connection.driver_class"> org.hsqldb.jdbcDriver </property>

What is wrong?

<hibernate-configuration xmlns="http://www.hibernate.org/xsd/orm/cfg">
<property name="connection.driver_class">  org.hsqldb.jdbcDriver </property>
      <property name="connection.url"> jdbc:hsqldb:file:./data/treehouse </property>
        <property name="dialect"> org.hibernate.dialect.HSQLDialect </property>

Try eliminating the space before and after the xml tags. For example:

<!-- Not working -->
<property name="connection.driver_class">  org.hsqldb.jdbcDriver </property>

<!-- Try this instead. Notice the removed spaces -->
<property name="connection.driver_class">org.hsqldb.jdbcDriver</property>
