    Hibernate exception while processing a Mappedsuperclass with @version

    Sai Krish Newbie

      I have a create a simple test program with 3 classes namely BaseEntity.java (with @Mappedsuperclass annotation) - which contains just one attribute namely "version". It has two extended classes Customer and Season - having few fields. When I deploy this ejbModule in JBoss 7.1.1 Final release I get a NullPointerException from Hibernate's AttributeFactory as given below

      When I removed the class Season the test application is deployed properly. I tried turning on the log level to TRACE for hiberate, but I could not trace the actual reason for the EntityMetamodel being null.

       

      All the relevant files including the Entities, db creation script for mysql are attached.

       

      Thanks,

      SK

          It is probably to late for you, but it might save other people a lot of time.

           

          The reason for this error is: you are mixing property and field based access:

          Your BaseEntity has:

           

          @Version

          private int version;

           

          Customer class matches BaseEntity: it also has annotations on fields:

          @Id

          @Column(nullable = false)

          @GeneratedValue(strategy = GenerationType.IDENTITY)

          private int customerid;

           

           

          But Season has annotations on getters:

          @Id

          @Column(nullable = false)

          @GeneratedValue

          public int getSeasonid()

          { return seasonid; }

           

           

          A not that obvious thing about this is that the application might sometimes work OK and sometimes fail.
