Hibernate Search 4.0.0 CR1

Posted by    |       Hibernate Search

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.

We are continuing our quest for Hibernate Search 4.0. No breaking news for this release, we are quietly moving to the candidate release phase. As Sanne, said the big news is that there are no big news ;)

We have fixed a bunch of issues and expanded our test coverage. Thanks to Davide's work, we now have a nice Arquillian test harness making sure Hibernate Search runs fine on JBoss AS 7. We also fired up our Windows VMs and added Windows to our Jenkins tests to make sure Hibernate Search runs without issues there. Hint: playing with files on Windows is hell.

We also have native support for UUIDs thanks to Gregory Beachy.

What's in Hibernate Search 4.0

Many things:

  • near real time search
  • new per-index backend architecture
  • Hibernate Core 4 support
  • new portable and efficient binary format between nodes
  • Hibernate Core is now an optional dependency
