The hibernate-types open-source project is born

Introduction

Recently, I got a very interesting request from one of my readers. Since I’ve been providing many custom types to support JSON, ARRAY or nullable Character types, I decided to start a new open-source project to make it easier for you to get this extra Hibernate Types.

The project

As expected, the project is hosted on GitHub, so it’s business as usual.

To use it, you just have to set up a new Maven dependency in your project since all artifacts can be grabbed from Maven Central.

For Hibernate 5.2, use this dependency:

<dependency>
    <groupId>com.vladmihalcea</groupId>
    <artifactId>hibernate-types-52</artifactId>
    <version>1.0.0</version>
</dependency>

For Hibernate 5.1 and 5.0, use this dependency:

<dependency>
    <groupId>com.vladmihalcea</groupId>
    <artifactId>hibernate-types-5</artifactId>
    <version>1.0.0</version>
</dependency>

For Hibernate 4.3, use this dependency:

<dependency>
    <groupId>com.vladmihalcea</groupId>
    <artifactId>hibernate-types-43</artifactId>
    <version>1.0.0</version>
</dependency>

For Hibernate 4.2 and 4.1, use this dependency:

<dependency>
    <groupId>com.vladmihalcea</groupId>
    <artifactId>hibernate-types-4</artifactId>
    <version>1.0.0</version>
</dependency>

For older versions of Hibernate, it’s time to upgrade and benefit from a great variety of features.

Extra Hibernate Types

The 1.0.0 version brings you the following Hibernate Types:

Conclusion

Stay tuned!

The next release is going to add support for combining the assigned identifier generator with either IDENTITY or SEQUENCE as well as the SEQUENCE locating mechanism explained in this article.

Therefore, it’s all about trade-offs, so choose wisely.
