Upgrade to Hibernate 4.2.3.Final
Last modified: 2015-09-01 00:00:32 EDT
If at all possible, we'd like to upgrade EAP 6.1.1 to Hibernate 4.2.3.Final (I'll be releasing it tomorrow morning). Apologies for asking so close to the component freeze date, but we were waiting on feedback on a few tickets.
Alternatively, since 4.2.3.Final would be brand new, could we consider 4.2.2.Final + a few cherry-picks?
As new features are not allowed in EAP 6.1.1 I'm unsure about few commits since Hibernate 4.2.0
HHH-7714 Add support for EntityMode.MAP to JPA Criteria API
and most of OSGI related commits e.g. HHH-7993 Support jar scanning in OSGi, HHH-7995 Auto-discovery of Hibernate extension points in OSGi (HHH-7944), ...
OSGI in EAP is only technical preview and is not supported
Martin has a point about HHH-7714 and potentially a few other "new releases", although some of them are definitely a gray area. However, I have no problem cherry-picking only the necessary commits for 6.1.1.
I'm withdrawing this -- there's a few other concerns about compatability. Thanks for the comment, Martin.
