Your issue seems to be related to an API change in Hibernate itself, nothing to do with the the Infinispan implementation itself. Infinispan just implemented what Hibernate instructed it to. In 3.6.x, it was cache/RegionFactory and in 4.x onwards, cache/spi/RegionFactory.
Btw, this is not related with https://issues.jboss.org/browse/AS7-3080
Sorry I don't think there's anything wrong with the Infinispan impl itself -- perhaps this would be better suited in the Hibernate discussion but since there appears to be a problem with the InfinispanRegionFactory, I thought I'd start here -- let me know if this needs to be taken up with the Hibernate forum.
Re: "Btw, this is not related with https://issues.jboss.org/browse/AS7-3080"
Can you support this with evidence?
My evidence: AS7-3080 is entitled "Infinispan second level cache is not working with Hibernate 3.6.x" and they are talking about Infinispan version 5.
The last comment by Scott Marlow:
"Hibernate 3.x doesn't have Infinispan 5.x integration code (this is only in Hibernate 4.x)."
So either there's a way of setting the 2nd level cache on Hibernate v 3.6.10 such that it works with Infinispan 5.1.5, or perhaps there needs to be a custom InfinispanRegionFactory written to allow the two to play together nicely (which I may do myself if nobody else has done this already).
Do you have a suggestion?
Thanks for your help,

Indeed, looks to me it's more of a discussion that you should be posted in the Hibernate forums.
Sure, I can even give you forensic evidence if you need to...
What I was trying to say is that Hibernate API changes have nothing to do with AS7-3080. Hibernate API changes are a Hibernate issue.
That doesn't mean that what Scott says in AS7-3080 is wrong, Infinispan 5.x has not been tested with Hibernate 3.x, and the integration code to bind the two together in Hibernate 3.x codebase is designed for Infinispan 4.x. Besides, the integration code in Hibernate 4.x that can deal with Infinispan 5.x is incompatible with Hibernate 3.x. So, some surgery would need doing if you want to get Hibernate 3.x with Infinispan 5.x. Might even easier for you to upgradde to Hibernate 4.x directly.
OK that explains a lot. Thanks for your help.
