    Strange problem with Entitymanager.remove()

    Sueleyman Vurucu Expert

      Hi guys,


      I have a strange problem to delete entities in bulk mode from JSF managed CDI bean. If I trigger the delete method from an EJB than it's works as excpected.



      This is my "Bulk" delete method.


        public <T extends EditableIF> List<Long> makeTransient(List<T> editables){
          try {
            if (editables == null || editables.size() == 0) {
              log.error("Nothing to delete");
              return new ArrayList<>();
            // Backup the current flushmode
            FlushModeType flushModeBefore = em.getFlushMode();
            int i = 0;
            // Save or update all editables and flush every 50 times
            ArrayList<Long> ids = new ArrayList<>();
            for (T eif : editables) {
              if (i % BULK_FLUSH_SIZE == 0) {
            return ids;
          } catch (HibernateException ex) {
            throw new InfrastructureException(ex);


      The intent of this mehtod is that I wan't improve performance for big deletions. As I said, if I trigger this method from  an EJB then it works fine. But if I trigger this from an SessionScoped CDI bean then the database entries are not deleted.


      For tracking the behaviuour of hibernate I switch the loglevel of org.hibernate.event.internal.DefaultDeleteEventListener to TRACE and add a delete interceptor.


      The related logentires are shown below:

      The strange thing here is that hibernate recognize the delete action but it doesn't excecute a delete statement on the DB.


      Thanks in advance.


      My runtime:

      Jboss 7.1.1.Final

      Hibernate 4.1.4.Final

      Primefaces 3.4.2
