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.

Hibernate Search version 5.4.0.CR1 is now available! It was built and tested with Hibernate ORM 5.0.0.CR2, essentially it’s all ready for ORM 5 and we’ll just be waiting for this to be marked Final.


No longer timeouts when using the MassIndexer in a container

You can now have the MassIndexer set a different timeout for the internal transactions it will start, so if you’re running Hibernate Search in a container like WildFly you no longer have to make a choice between having a deadline of 5 minutes or changing the default timeout of the whole container.

   .createIndexer( User.class )
   .transactionTimeout( 1800 ) //seconds

Great improvements in the JMS backend

Transactional JMS backend

As explained in more detail in last week’s post, Hibernate Search now provides an option to include its indexing operations within the same transaction as the RDBMS.

In short, it’s enabled by setting this property:


But keep in mind: it’s a global setting! If you want to use it, all your backends shall be set to use an XA enabled, transactional JMS queue.

Please let us know if you have a great use case which would require us to allow some form of mixed mode.

The JMS message header JMSXGroupID

Hibernate Search will now use the specific JMSXGroupID message header and set it to the index name. That will allow users of the JMS backend to take advantage of message grouping.

Modules versions and running in WildFly

The first WildFly version to use Hibernate ORM 5 is version 10.0.0.Alpha5, which was released the past weekend. So the JBoss Modules we create for this appserver are targeting now WildFly 10, but at least version 10.0.0.Alpha5.
