Hibenate envers audit configuration not supported

Reported by notalifeform (at gmail) | May 23rd, 2013 @ 07:24 PM | in 1.4.x

(as per thread https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups=#!topic/play-framework/...)

Hello Richard,

No, I did not. However, as I said, our "basic" envers configuration was working. We were using the same configuration as the one mentioned in the link you have provided.

My problem was to make a specific Enevers configuraiton work, regarding the new Audit Strategy they have implemented. The configuration parameters do not start with "hibernate...." but "org.hibernate...". In the Play framework, I have clearly identified a piece of code where the framework injects configuration in Hibernate and this is done like this:

cfg.addProperties((Properties) Utils.Maps.filterMap(Play.configuration, "^hibernate\..*"));

This line clearly ignores all configuration regarding the Audit Strategy configuration (you can find this configuration here) whose all parameters begin with "org.hibernate".

By the way, thank you for your answer.

    • Tag set to audit, envers, hibernate

    I don't know if you use a module to use Envers. But in my case we developed a specific module do handle all audit staff, so we jusst all configurations we want by overriding the function onConfigurationRead in our module

    public void onConfigurationRead() {
            Play.configuration.setProperty("hibernate.ejb.event.post-insert", "play.modules.audit.xxxxxClass");
            Play.configuration.setProperty("org.hibernate.envers.audit_strategy", "org.hibernate.envers.strategy.ValidityAuditStrategy");

    This way you can specify all properties you need

<h2>Creating a bug report</h2> Bug reports are incredibly helpful, so take time to report bugs and request features in our ticket tracker. We’re always grateful for patches to Play’s code. Indeed, bug reports with attached patches will get fixed far quickly than those without any.<br><br>
