Hibernate 5 with Java 8

This is going to be a fallow up to the very first posts in which I introduced the small Hibernate wrapper.

This time I have released it’s updated version that compiles against just released Hibernate 5:


The changes has been rather cosmetic, although the Hibernate 5 brings one major change, it natively supports Java 8 types (mostly JSR-310 date time API – like LocalDate, LocalTime etc.) on the entity mapping level, so you no longer need extensions like Jadira in order to facilitate them.

The wrapper itself will add the syntatic sugar for Java 8 lambda like queries, so you will be able to fully laverage all of Java 8 features.
