Hmm this should work fine. There are very similar tests. Maybe you could create a small test case which reproduces the problem?
Sorry, I guess it was my mistake. I reworked all the mappings and it works now.
Can you please specify what was the issue with the mapping and what is the solution, because I am also facing the same error while trying Envers with Hibernate 4. I am using hbm files for configuration instead of annotations.
