    Envers + Maven + Seam + JBoss5: AUD_ tables created, but no auditing

    Rodrigo Rodrigues da Silva Newbie



      I've setup Envers 1.2.2-hibernate-3.3 with Seam 2.2. The project builds nicely with Maven (pom below), the envers jar is bundled into the lib folder of the .EAR that is deployed to JBoss5 (tried 5.1 too).


      The problem is: during the application startup, the auditing tables and entities (prefixed AUD) are created by Hibernate. When I run the application and create, edit or delete entities only the entities are changed. No auditing, no versioning in REVINFO.


      I have three things in mind:


      1. for some reason, the Envers listeners are not triggered by Hibernate events (I will check if default EJB3 triggers are).

      2. some transaction configuration is not compatible with Envers. I am using a Seam Managed Persistent Context with JTA transactions (the project was created with seam-gen).

      3. some dependency conflict or other library is overriding the Envers listeners.


      I'd appreciate if someone could help me. I've been with this issue around for almost a week.
