Error when try to persist entity with Hibernate (MappingException: Unknown entity)



I’m using Hibernate 5.0.6 and Hibernate annotations 3.5.6-Final with MySql 5.1.37 in a standalone maven java application.

I’m trying to make a simply persistence example work but I receive the following error when I call save:

0    [main] ERROR edu.uci.ics.crawler4j.crawler.CrawlController  - Error    happened
org.hibernate.MappingException: Unknown entity: br.com.alexpfx.supermarket.crawler.model.domain.Product

The classes Is pointed via mapping class in the configuration file. But it is unable to find.

        <mapping class="br.com.alexpfx.supermarket.crawler.model.domain.Product" />

But when I do this in HibernateUtil:

        configure.addAnnotatedClass(Product.class);
        configure.addAnnotatedClass(Manufacturer.class);

It works. But I want to point mapping the classes in xml files.

I found several errors related to this but found no solution solved my problem. I think I’m doing something wrong.

The full stacktrace of error:

Answer

It is already a familiar problem with Hibernate 5 configuration building. You can’t use Hibernate 4 configuration approach to configure Hibernate 5. So just use this

private static SessionFactory buildSessionFactory() {
        try {
             return new Configuration().configure().buildSessionFactory();
        } catch (Throwable ex) {
            System.err.println("Initial SessionFactory creation failed." + ex);
            throw new ExceptionInInitializerError(ex);
        }
}

You can refer this for additional notes. I have implemented a configuration builder that works fine with Hibernate 4 and Hibernate 5, you can take a look on it too ConfigurationBuilder.
