I'm using Hibernate to create mysql tables automatically within a maven JBoss project. When I deploy I get this info msg:
13:48:24,415 INFO [org.hibernate.cfg.Environment] (MSC service thread 1-7) HHH000206: hibernate.properties not found

and this error:
13:50:44,880 ERROR [stderr] (http-localhost- com.mysql.jdbc.exceptions.jdbc4.MySQLSyntaxErrorEx ception: Table 'mydb.my_table' doesn't exist

I've included these properties in my persistence.xml:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<persistence version="2.0"
Java Persistence API: XML Schemas
<persistence-unit name="primary">
<!-- If you are running in a production environment, add a managed
data source, the example data source is just for development and testing! -->
<!-- Properties for Hibernate -->
<property name="hibernate.hbm2ddl.auto" value="create" />
<property name="hibernate.show_sql" value="true" />

and the appropriate dependencies in pom.xml:
hibernate-validator, hibernate-jpamodelgen, hibernate-validator-annotation-processor, hibernate-entitymanager and mysql-connector-java

the datastore is successfully bounded, but the tables are never created . What can I do?

One more info: I've deleted my *-ds.xml file under Deployed Resources/webapp/WEB-INF because it was causing two errors: Duplicate resources & Failed to process phase INSTALL of deployment *.war

I appreciate your help!
