    AuditReaderFactory/EntityManager problem: Hibernate EntityMa

    Stephan Oudmaijer Newbie

      Hi there,

      first of all, Envers really is a GREAT project, like it very much, keep it up!

      Ok, I have a problem with the AuditReaderFactory. I`m trying to retrieve an AuditReader in my Stateless SessionBean. But it doesn`t seem to work for me. I inject the entitymanager with the PersistenceContext annotation:

      private EntityManager entityManager;

      When I inspect my code and the injected entityManager with my debugger I notice the following:
      if (entityManager.getDelegate() instanceof EntityManager) {
       // true: delegate == org.hibernate.ejb.EntityManagerImpl

      But, when I notice the code in the AuditFactoryReader it first checks for

      if (entityManager.getDelegate() instanceof EntityManager)

      Then it checks for:

      if (entityManager.getDelegate() instanceof Session)

      But this never seems to happen! Shouldn`t the code in the AuditFactoryReader be something like this?

      public static AuditReader get(EntityManager entityManager) throws AuditException {
       Object delegate = entityManager.getDelegate();
       if (delegate instanceof Session) {
       return get((Session) delegate);
       else if (delegate instanceof EntityManager) {
       Object session = ((EntityManager)delegate).getDelegate();
       if ( session instanceof Session) {
       return get((Session)session);
       else {
       throw new AuditException("Hibernate EntityManager not present!");

      I`ve also tested my code with injection of the PersistenceUnit. In this case everything works just fine.

      private EntityManagerFactory entityManagerFactory;
      EntityManager entityManager = entityManagerFactory.createEntityManager();
      AuditReader reader = AuditReaderFactory.get(entityManager);

      I`m running my code with:
