    Can't save data in database

    Maitri Kundu Newbie


      I am developing an application in jboss integreting hibernate.I am saving database through hibernate.It's not giving any error or exception. But,transaction is not commiting.
      Code of Bean class is like that................................

      SimpleDateFormat formatter = new SimpleDateFormat("dd-MM-yyyy");
      Configuration cfg=new Configuration();
      cfg.configure(new File(System.getProperties().getProperty("sun.boot.library.path")+"\\hibernate.cfg.xml"));
      SessionFactory sessionFactory=cfg.buildSessionFactory();
      Tb_VoucherMain tb_vm=new Tb_VoucherMain(vMain.elementAt(0).toString(),formatter.parse(vMain.elementAt(1).toString()),vMain.elementAt(2).toString(),Double.parseDouble(vMain.elementAt(3).toString()),Double.parseDouble(vMain.elementAt(4).toString()),vMain.elementAt(5).toString());
      Tb_VoucherDetail tb_vd=new Tb_VoucherDetail(vDetail.elementAt(4).toString(),vDetail.elementAt(0).toString(),Double.parseDouble(vDetail.elementAt(2).toString()),Double.parseDouble(vDetail.elementAt(3).toString()));
      Session session=sessionFactory.openSession();
      Transaction tx=session.beginTransaction();

      Can u help to fix out th problem.

          I've been having the same problem for 2 weeks. Its so bad that my management told me to stop using Hibernate, but I keep playing with it hoping I can figure it out. The problem has to be something stupid, but its equally as stupid that you can execute session.save() and not get an exception, or for that matter any intelligible DEBUG output.

          Maybe we can help each other on this (I think we better because no one has responded to my HIbernate Forum post in 2 weeks).

          Below is what I'm seeing in the console when I do a save. Obviously the mapping is good, it is calculating the generated identifer correctly (I already have a 0 & 1 in the table, so 2 is correct. What I'm not seeing is the SQL insert statement (ShowSQL is set to true).

          Do you see something similar? I am trying to step through the Hibernate code, but it is painful process because it is often hard to tell hat the methods should return if they are working correctly.

            Here's a little more I found out:

            During a save Hibernate is executing a method in class AbstractSaveEventListener that is testing whether a variable useIdentityColumn is true or false. It's false in mine (I don't know why, I do have an indentity column defined). It looks to me that the call to
            is being skipped. I'm just guessing this in the path it needs to go down to execute the save. There must be another configuration setting needed to make useIdentityColumn == true.

            if (useIdentityColumn) {
            EntityIdentityInsertAction insert = new EntityIdentityInsertAction
            (values, entity, persister, source);
            id = insert.getGeneratedId();
            persister.setIdentifier( entity, id, source.getEntityMode() );
            source.getPersistenceContext().checkUniqueness(id, persister, entity);
            //source.getBatcher().executeBatch (); //found another way to ensure that all batched joined inserts have been executed

              I was having the same problem too, and for a day and a half nearly went out of my mind trying to figure out why the data wouldn't save! Then I realized it was simple - I forgot to add session.flush() after saving but before closing the session. With jboss you use a HAR and put it in an EAR. By putting the hibernate classes in a HAR along with hibernate-service.xml as I understand you don't configure hibernate anymore with the hibernate.cfg.xml or hibernate.properties files. You also don't build the SessionFactory either you reference it, and don't need to do the transactions yourself in the method but the container will do them for you -of course don't forget to put in the ejb-jar.xml that your method has a required container managed transaction :) I think jboss also sets up the transaction configuration for you too, so you don't need to configure that for hibernate either.

              Here is my method:

              public void store(String title, Date theDate) throws EJBException
              System.out.println("EventFacadeBean.store: entered in method");
              Session hsession = null;


              InitialContext ctx = new InitialContext();
              SessionFactory factory = (SessionFactory) ctx.lookup("java:/hibernate/SessionFactory");
              hsession = factory.openSession();

              Event theEvent = new Event();


              } catch(Exception e) {
              System.out.println("Exception found. " + e.getMessage());
              } finally {
              if (hsession!=null){
              System.out.println("EventFacadeBean.store: finished method");

                Can you post your hibernate.cfg.xml file for reference.

                  I didn't use a hibernate.cfg.xml or hibernate.properties when running the application as an EAR using jboss, accessing hibernate classes with a stateless session bean. I made a HAR which is a basic archive (just like a jar except .har instead) and put hibernate-service.xml in the META-INF folder. Then put the HAR in an EAR and put the above store() method in an ejb. My hibernate-service.xml looks like this. (i think jboss forum adds unnecessary br tags(?))


                  When I was NOT running the application as an EAR (not using ejb) I ran the hibernate documentation tutorial using hibernate.cfg.xml file. Of course I had set up the hypersonic db beforehand.
