Java 8 introduced a new type Optional which may be used to represent
objects which may be set or not set:
private Optional<String> name;
Hibernate Validator will allow to validate properties of this type in the
next release. Now someone brought up the question whether the same is
planned for ORM, so one can use Optional in entity properties.
Following the discussion about releasing 5 sooner rather than later, I
wanted to point out that we still have to take a decision about
- either commit in 5 the fix we committed to 4.x and update the documentation;
- or work on defining another concept.
I don't have a strong opinion about what we should do but I have a
strong one about doing something before we release 5 :).
(sorry for the long silence - busy months...)
I'm eagerly awaiting Hibernate Search 5 but recently all the progress seems
to be contextual (testsuites/updating dependencies/etc). Should a due date
be put on alpha 5? The Hibernate team has always been excellent at meeting
deadlines. Or is this a holidays lull?
I've finished the releases. Everything went fine except I had trouble with uploading the documentation (via ./gradlew :release:uploadDocumentation).
I'll upload the docs, blog, and finish announcements tomorrow.
Hibernate Search has a pull request workflow where a specific status Pull Request Sent exists.
Do we want it for OGM? Do you think it would add more value to the clutter it brings?
That question is mostly for Gunnar and Davide. I am neutral personally.
Sanne what’s your feedback after using it in HSearch?
Anyone knows a way to disable JIRA notification when someone edits an
entry or comment? This creates a lot of noise and is 99% of the time
either a minor typo or some wiki syntax fixes / improvements.
That would make my day.
I've been explaining $subject to a forum user . I'm confident it's
only a problem for newcomers, but are we expecting more expert
developers to pass this lore by word of mouth?
I think we should add an explanation on these on the website but I'm
not sure where this would be more appropriate to present.
Should we highlight compatible versions of other integration points on
each sub section?
For example I could edit the Search area to mention which versions of
ORM, OGM, Lucene, Validator, Envers, Infinispan(we might have two
different ones!), Commons Annotations, etc.. are supposed to work for
