Hi i dont have much experince about ORM tools but i have used hibernate. my problemis,

i want to attach my customized activiti work flow manger appliaction to a anothe existing database.It has a user data table that contains different columns.I want to replace default ACT_ID_USER table with my existing user table.How can accomplish it?

I found out there plenty of questions regarding to that but i couldnt find any proper answer or proper approach.I download the activiti source and figure out it uses iBATIS as ORM tool. Can i accomplish that by editing sql file that resides in
/activiti-engine/src/main/resources/org/activiti/db/create   and also editing that mapping file Users.xml  resides in /activiti-engine/src/main/resources/org/activiti/db/mapping/entity .if i edit those files will it work ?

my mysql user table is mst_user(user_id,user_name,user_password,status,address ,…….) like wise it contains several columns

I have to do these things through self studies.please can any one  give me right direction and guidance to do this properly what is the best approach
