hibernate4-maven-plugin 1.0.3 released!

Today we released the version 1.0.3 of hibernate4-maven-plugin to Central.

Scanning dependencies

This release of the plugin now supports scanning of dependencies. By default all dependencies in the scope compile are scanned for annotated classes. Thanks to Guido Wimmel, who pointed out, that this was really missing and supported the implementation with a little test-project for this use-case. Learn more…

Support for Hibernate Envers

Another new feature of this release is support for Hibernate Envers – Easy Entity Auditing. Thanks a lot to Victor Tatai, how implemented this, and Erik-Berndt Scheper, who helped integrating it and who supported the testin with a little test-project, that demonstrates the new feature. You can visit it at bitbucket as a starting point for your own experiments with this technique.

Less bugs!

Many thanks also to Stephen Johnson and Eduard Szente, who pointed out bugs and helped eleminating them…

Get your hands on – on central!

hibernate4-maven-plugin 1.0.3 is available in the Central Maven Repository.

So for example calling mvn test -> invokes compiler:compile and if you have export bound to process-classes phase in executions it will fail. Maybe better to give info and carry on. Say for example they want to leave the executions in place that deal with process-classes and also process-test-classes but they do not want it to fail if there is no java to annotate in src/classes. The other way would be to comment out the executions bound to process-classes. What about export being bound to process-class by default? Could this also cause issues? In either case I think the plugin code did checks for src/classes directory existing, in which case even call "mvn test" would fail as src/classes would not exist as no java existed in src/main only in src/test. Have a look through the patch and see if its of any use. commit 9414e11c9ffb27e195193f5fa53c203c6297c7a4 Author: Kai Moritz Date: Sat Aug 31 11:28:51 2013 +0200 Improved log-messages commit da0b3041b8fbcba6175d05a2561b38c365111ed8 Author: Kai Moritz Date: Sat Aug 31 08:51:03 2013 +0200 Fixed NPE when using nested classes in entities with @EmbeddedId/@Embeddable Patch supplied by Eduard Szente Details: ---------------- Hi, when using your plugin for schema export the presence of nested classes in entities (e.g. when using @EmbeddedId/@Embeddable and defining the Id within the target entity class) yields to NPEs. public class Entity { @EmbeddedId private Id id; @Embeddable public static class Id implements Serializable { .... } } Entity.Id.class.getSimplename == "Id", while the compiled class is named "Entity$Id.class" Patch appended.

Comments / Questions

  1. Andreas Kuhtz says:

    Hi Kai,
    Thank you for this great plugin!
    When will the next version be released? We ran into an issue that is fixed on trunk (schema file created in non-existing subdirectory).

    1. Kai Moritz says:

      Hi Andreas,

      I am working on the next release. Nearly everything is in place to put it online. The only thing missing is the fact, that I planed to add some test-cases to ensure, that the fixes does not break the known use-cases. I hope I will find some time in the next days, to complete this plan…


  2. hdave says:

    I’ve got your plugin in production now and it works great. Thanks a ton. One thing however, it pumps out a lot of text during the maven build. Our team works hard to cut down on the clutter. Any chance of getting a “quiet” setting or level?

    1. Kai Moritz says:

      That is a good idea!
      I will include a switch in the next release…
      Thanks for the clue.

  3. Agustino says:


    When using this plugin, this class package-info is ignored. You need to invoke Configuration.addPackage(packageName).

    1. Kai Moritz says:

      Hi Augustino,

      thanks a lot for your bug-report, first.

      If you could provide me with a small example-project, that triggers the error, that would ease and therefore speed up the bugfixing.
      Youd could simply send it as .zip or .tgz to kai@juplo.de, or share it at githupb or something else.

      Kind regards

      Kai Moritz
