Well we know back porting will be an issue but I expect the amount of backporting to be
somewhat minimal between Hibernate Search 3.x and 4.
I think we can consider a Hibernate Search Core module if we end up moving the Hibernate
Search code dedicated to Hibvernate Core into a separate module. What do you guys think?
We could decide to keep hibernate-search as an artifact that is a simple aggregator to
hibernate-search-core and hibernate-search-hibernate-core (SIC) (or should it be
I dislike "orm" as it's too generic, we don't want to imply to support
We already mention hibernate in the group id properly identifying the
team working on it, so if the kernel of H.Search doesn't need H.Core
as it will drop the hibernate-core depencency, we could call the core
module "search", and keep "hibernate-search" as the integration
providing the current eventlistener functionality. Everyone using
"Hibernate Search" will still depend on the "hibernate-search"
artifact anyway so we're not loosing any branding.
As an example: Infinispan Query would not depend on "hibernate-search"
but on "org.hibernate.search:search", being this only the search
engine, produced by the Hibernate Search project.
infinispan-search (is currently hibernate-search-infinispan)
Lastly, we could consider moving to org.hibernate.search as a groupId
