In this post I’ll show you how easy it is to use the latest and greatest version of Hibernate ORM with WildFly 10.
Traditionally, updating Hibernate in WildFly required some good knowledge of the server’s module system and the structure of the ORM modules.
It certainly was doable, but it involved search/replace in existing module descriptors and generally wasn’t very convenient.
We now provide a ZIP archive containing all the required modules,
making it a breeze to add the latest version of Hibernate to an existing WildFly instance.
And what’s best: the version of Hibernate packaged with the application server remains untouched; switching between this and the new version is just a matter of setting one small configuration option, and you can go back at any time.
