Currently Oracle supports database versions from 10.1 to 11.2 . LONG
and LONG RAW data types are deprecated since version 8 and 8i (released
before September 2000) . Oracle keeps those column types only for
backward compatibility .
I tried the following scenario (Oracle 10gR2):
1. Create schema with "hibernate.hbm2ddl.auto" set to "create". The LONG
column is created.
2. Insert some data.
3. Modify Oracle dialect as Gail suggested. Avoid setting
4. Insert some data.
To my surprise the test actually passed :). However, I think that we
cannot guaranty the proper behavior in every situation.
As for performance, ImageType is extracted by calling
ResultSet.getBytes() method, which fetches all data in one call . I
don't suppose a major performance difference when data is streamed in
another call. oracle.jdbc.driver.LongRawAccessor.getBytes also fetches
data by reading the stream.
The bug reading LONG column affects JDBC drivers since version 10.2.0.4.
I think that we have to choose between:
- changing Oracle10gDialect. Make a not about it in migration guide to
4.0 and update "5.2.2. Basic value types" chapter in Hibernate
- introducing Oracle11gDialect. It can sound weird to access Oracle 10g
database with Oracle 11g dialect.
- disabling execution of Hibernate tests that fail because of this issue
with @SkipForDialect (and maybe develop another version of them with
CLOBs and BLOBs, @RequiresDialect). Hibernate is written correctly
according to "Default Mappings Between SQL Types and Java Types"
(referenced earlier by Gail) and this is more Oracle's JDBC
implementation issue. This option came to my mind, but it's weird :P.
I would vote for the first option.

Assuming you build a Lucene Query the following way:
queryBuilder.keyword().onField( "age" ).matching( 5 ).createQuery();
What is your expectation, if the "age" field is being indexed as a NumericField?
We have discussed spatial-specific extensions to HQL for quite some time.
But those discussions have always been kind of esoteric ("boy wouldn't it
be nice to have some spatial support in HQL").
As we are working on redesigning the parsing and interpretation of HQL
queries and since spatial has been integrated upstream, it seems like a
great time to discuss specifics of what this might mean.
I have never used spatial data, let alone crafted queries using spatial
data. So I am not the best driver here.
What kinds of things make sense to add to HQL for supporting spatial
I'm migrating from Hibernate4 to 5(RC4). While doing so I'm stumbling on
some stuff that has been removed or moved.
- In Hibernate4 we modified mappings on-the-fly by overriding Spring's
Doing so we could first access the getClassMapping on
org.hibernate.cfg.Configuration before letting the SF actually build.
However, in Hibernate5 the metadata access has been refactored and is no
longer part of the Configuration. Should we use MetadataContributor instead
for these purposes?
- Is there a way to register MetadataContributor dynamically? I see that it
is being loaded using Java's ServiceLoader.
However, I need some programmatic API access to enable or disable the
Contributor (for example based on Spring profiles).
- For JTA integration we were using
this class is no longer present.
Also in org.hibernate.cfg.AvailableSettings the key that was used
(hibernate.transaction.factory_class) to configure the factory is also
Is hibernate.transaction.coordinator_class the new key we should be using
natorImpl as value for JTA?
Do we need to configure anything special in case of resource local TX or is
JdbcResourceLocalTransactionCoordinatorImpl the default?
- generateDropSchemaScript and generateSchemaCreationScript have been
removed from Configuration. Is there a way to access this in another way?
Including the dev mailing group to get a few suggestions on my question.

When building hibernate-core, I am observing a strange mismatch of
package declaration and file location of generated Antlr sources (this
is about the current parser in ORM, not SQM):
The files are generated into
hibernate-core/target/generated-src/antlr/main/, i.e. the default
package. But the package declarations within the files are
"org.hibernate.hql.internal.antlr". Subsequently, I am seeing lots of
compile errors in Eclipse.
Apparently it's not an issue with Gradle and I suppose also not in
IntelliJ, but I am puzzled how this actually works. Anyone observing
the same and with an idea how to generate the files into a directory
structure matching their package statements?
I just created a 5.5 branch on github for Hibernate Search, to
backport (so far) one issue which you all had flagged as "fixed for
5.5.1" on JIRA: please always make sure the state of JIRA tracks the
repository state accurately.
