We are happy to announce the ninth bug fix release of the 1.6 series.
Hibernate 6.2 support
Hibernate 6.2 was not really backwards compatible to 6.1 with respect to our integration, so we had the need for a new integration.
We uncovered quite a few bugs during testing of Hibernate 6 and only as of Hibernate 6.2.5.Final,
enough bugs were fixed so that we could comfortably call our integration production ready.
This and the fact that only Hibernate 6.2+ is maintained at this point drove us to the decision to drop the old hibernate-6 integration module
and instead create a new module
When updating to Blaze-Persistence 1.6.9 and replacing the integration dependency, don’t forget to also update your Hibernate version to at least 6.2.5.Final.
Spring Framework 6 / Boot 3.1 support
A big thank you goes out to Eugen Mayer who worked hard on the new Spring integration. Why no support for Spring Boot 3.0 you ask? Because that still depends on Hibernate 6.1 and we do not want to publish an integration for that version. Everyone is encouraged to update to 3.1 directly which supports Hibernate 6.2, though at this point you also have to bump the Hibernate version to at least 6.2.5.Final. At the time of writing, there is no Spring release yet that includes the new Hibernate version.
Note that there are new integration artifacts:
blaze-persistence-integration-entity-view-spring-6.0- Scanning support for Spring Framework 6+
blaze-persistence-integration-spring-data-3.1- Support for Spring Data 3.1+
blaze-persistence-integration-spring-data-webmvc-jakarta- Support for Spring WebMvc 3.1+
blaze-persistence-integration-spring-hateoas-webmvc-jakarta- Support for Spring HATEOAS 2+
Quarkus 3.1 support
This release introduces a new integration
blaze-persistence-integration-quarkus-3 which supports Quarkus 3.1.1+.
Quarkus 3.1.2+ will ship with Hibernate 6.2.5+, but if you want to work with Quarkus 3.1.1 for now,
you will have to manually update the Hibernate version to 6.2.5.Final in you dependencies.
Two new Netflix DGS integrations have been added. One for DGS version 5.5 - 6.x (
blaze-persistence-integration-graphql-dgs) and one for version 7.x+ (
DGS 7.x+ is for Spring Boot 3.x+ only, so we had to create separate integrations, due to the Jakarta namespace rename that happened in Spring Boot 3.
It is important to note though that the DGS integration now comes with support for updatable entity views as mutations out of the box!
Various bug fixes
As always, this release comes with quite a few bug fixes, so we recommend you update soon!
