Had some time to package the Getting Started example code and put it on the
CaveatEmptor Website. So all you MEAP
readers have something you can actually run without copy/pasting from the
PDFs. I should probably mention that the unedited draft you are reading with
MEAP is not completely in sync with the code I just packaged. Well, mostly the
Ant build files are a little different, so that shouldn't be a big problem.
I was looking for a good way to integrate DBUnit with Seam, so that I can prepare a dataset for functional testing without too much hassle. This is what I came up with, a test superclass that integrates with Seam and adds DBUnit operations that run before and after every test method.

It would be great if I could use the TestNG plugin for IntelliJ but I'm still on version 4.5 and
its only available for IDEA 5. Tried to switch a few times but the XML editor just doesn't work

just worked and didn't have the goofy indentation routines of 4.x...
Steve just committed a new interface and extension point to Hibernate Core. We can finally plug-in custom Session context management into Hibernate. For those of you who already know getCurrentSession() in Hibernate 3.0, this new extension enables the same without a JTA environment.
