Subject:Upgrading tapestry-hibernate to Hibernate 4.1.1
From:Jochen Frey (
Date:Mar 21, 2012 10:30:33 pm

Hello Developers,

For a a variety of reasons I want to upgrade to Hibernate 4.1, the most
important one being that a major bug that the Criteria API had in 3.6.0 got

I managed to do this by modifying tapestry-hibernate-core/build.gradle by
changing the hibernate version, and adding the the jboss logger to the
dependency list, which was required since the dependency on hibernate-core is

With those changes in place I was able to run the Tapestry unit tests, and our
system tests out fine, and after building a binary distro from the source I seem
to be doing fine.

I have tried to make this happen by way of changing our pom.xml to exclude
Hibernate 3.6.0 from the tapestry-hibernate dependency and including Hibernate
4.1.1 as a separate dependency, but that hasn't worked for me (in the time

Now I have 2 questions on my mind:

1) Is there something obviously wrong with this approach (I haven't been
hacking at TS proper that much), and 2) Is there an easier way (e.g. removing the "transitive: false" and hoping for
the best)?

Glad to provide the trivial patch (as well below) in JIRA if it's of interest.
