Hibernate Search is a library that integrates Hibernate ORM with Apache Lucene or Elasticsearch by automatically indexing entities, enabling advanced search functionality: full-text, geospatial, aggregations and more. For more information, see Hibernate Search on hibernate.org.

One week after 3.4.0.Beta1, two weeks after 3.4.0.Alpha1, we're on a run for 3.4.0.Final!

So this is your last chance to report issues on JIRA before the final release, which is of course planned for next week.

Download it from Sourceforge or via Maven from the JBoss repository, discuss about it on the forums.


As with all good candidate releases should have, there where no big changes since previous beta: we just made it a bit easier to embed the Hibernate Search engine into other frameworks, as Infinispan does with the Query API.

Infinispan Query

Since first releases Infinispan is providing a Query module, which is reusing the Hibernate Search engine. Infinispan v.4 provided a technology preview, for version 5 we're polishing the API and making sure it's simpler to setup and use. Expect some API updates in the next Alpha of Infinispan 5, and be aware that you can reuse all Hibernate Search annotations and extensions!
