org.hibernate.AssertionFailure

There are no available Samebug tips for this exception. Do you have an idea how to solve this issue? A short tip would help users who saw this issue last week.

  • Our model classes inherit their identifiers from a MappedSuperclass as follows: {code} @MappedSuperclass public abstract class GenericModel { protected Long id; @Id @GeneratedValue(generator="postgres-seq") @GenericGenerator(name="postgres-seq", strategy = "com.zzz.zzz.util.PostgresSequenceGenerator") @Column(name = "id", nullable = false) public Long getId() { return this.id; } public void setId(Long id) { this.id = id; } } @Entity @Table(name="users") public class User extends GenericModel { ... } {code} When building the metadata for these classes, the following AssertionFailure occurs: {noformat} org.hibernate.AssertionFailure: The root entity needs to specify an identifier at org.hibernate.metamodel.source.annotations.entity.RootEntitySourceImpl.getIdentifierSource(RootEntitySourceImpl.java:63) at org.hibernate.metamodel.source.binder.Binder.bindIdentifier(Binder.java:309) at org.hibernate.metamodel.source.binder.Binder.makeRootEntityBinding(Binder.java:183) at org.hibernate.metamodel.source.binder.Binder.createBasicEntityBinding(Binder.java:159) at org.hibernate.metamodel.source.binder.Binder.doCreateEntityBinding(Binder.java:147) at org.hibernate.metamodel.source.binder.Binder.createEntityBinding(Binder.java:132) at org.hibernate.metamodel.source.binder.Binder.processEntityHierarchy(Binder.java:108) at org.hibernate.metamodel.source.annotations.AnnotationMetadataSourceProcessorImpl.processMappingMetadata(AnnotationMetadataSourceProcessorImpl.java:134) at org.hibernate.metamodel.source.internal.MetadataImpl.bindMappingMetadata(MetadataImpl.java:195) at org.hibernate.metamodel.source.internal.MetadataImpl.<init>(MetadataImpl.java:165) at org.hibernate.metamodel.source.internal.MetadataBuilderImpl.buildMetadata(MetadataBuilderImpl.java:83) at org.hibernate.metamodel.MetadataSources.buildMetadata(MetadataSources.java:112) {noformat} It appears that this is happening because EntityClass is always instantiated with a null parent from EntityHierarchyBuilder.createEntityHierarchies(AnnotationBindingContext bindingContext) line 105: {code} EntityClass rootEntityClass = new EntityClass( rootClassInfo, null, defaultAccessType, hierarchyInheritanceType, bindingContext ); {code} and therefore EntityClass.findIdAnnotations(DotName idAnnotationType) never loops through the parent hierarchy to find the @Id annotation in the MappedSuperclass. This was working in Hibernate 3.6.*.
