I work in the Hibernate team at Red Hat. I'm currently focusing on Hibernate Search, but I also work on Hibernate Validator and am involved in Quarkus.
Just a quick heads-up to French-speaking developers: I will be presenting the Elasticsearch integration in Hibernate Search at the Strasbourg Java User Group (ElsassJUG) meetup, at 7 PM on Wednesday 26th of April.
I will briefly introduce full-text search (why and how it’s done), then present how to use Hibernate Search to keep Lucene indexes in sync with your Hibernate ORM entities, and I will show you how easy it is to target Elasticsearch instead of local Lucene indexes since Hibernate Search 5.6.0.
For more information about the location or to register, please refer to the Meetup page.
You asked for it, we deliver: Hibernate Search 5.7.0.Final, with support for Hibernate ORM 5.2.8, is out! And of course, like previous versions, it features experimental support for Elasticsearch integration (even with some improvements).
Stuck on an older ORM version? Don’t worry, we also released a bugfix version for 5.6, namely 5.6.1.Final.

After a relatively quiet candidate release, we just published Hibernate Search version 5.6.0.Final with experimental Elasticsearch integration, along with 5.7.0.CR1.
Version 5.6.0.Final brings the latest bugfixes for our experimental Elasticsearch integration. This is the version to use with Hibernate ORM versions 5.0 and 5.1.
Version 5.7.0.CR1 brings the exact same changes as 5.6.0.Final, and now features the compatibility with Hibernate ORM version 5.2.7 (but not lower than 5.2.3, see more on this further down).
It’s finally here! We just published the first candidate release of Hibernate Search with experimental Elasticsearch integration (5.6.0.CR1), along with 5.7.0.Beta2.
Version 5.6.0.CR1 brings the latest bugfixes and previously missing features for our experimental Elasticsearch integration. This is the version to use with Hibernate ORM versions 5.0 and 5.1.
Version 5.7.0.Beta2 brings the exact same changes as 5.6.0.CR1, and it still features the compatibility with Hibernate ORM version 5.2 that was introduced with 5.7.0.Alpha1.
Today we are releasing two new versions of Hibernate Search: 5.6.0.Beta4 and 5.7.0.Beta1!
Version 5.6.0.Beta4 brings the latest bugfixes and previously missing features for our experimental Elasticsearch integration. This is the version to use with Hibernate ORM versions 5.0.x and 5.1.x.
Version 5.7.0.Beta1 brings the exact same changes as 5.6.0.Beta1, but on top of the compatibility with Hibernate ORM version 5.2.x that was introduced with 5.7.0.Alpha1.
With Elasticsearch support coming as a technological preview in Hibernate Search 5.6, you would think we’re leaving out other features. Well, think again! Enters the Sort DSL, which will work with Elasticsearch of course, but also with the good ol' Lucene backend.
The point here is to provide an API to build sort descriptions easily, without knowing everything about Hibernate Search features added on top of Lucene, such as
DistanceSortField. And while we’re at it, we’re making it a modern, fluid API.
