How to Install Hibernate 5.4.5/JPA 2.2 in Adobe Experience Manager 6.4.4

Authors: Svetlana Suvorova, Alexander Markov

Softwerke experts share their own experience of Hibernate 5.4.5 deployment in Adobe Experience Manager 6.4.4 (further AEM) and database connection setup like MySQL according to JPA 2.2. This task is not trivial as, for instance, there is not enough information on this topic on the Web. We hope this article will be useful if you are struggling with Hibernate/JPA integration in AEM.

Contents

1. Technical Requirements

To install Hibernate 5.4.5 you will need preinstalled:

  • Java 8
  • Adobe Experience Manager 6.4.4
  • Maven 3

2. Hibernate 5.4.5 Installation in AEM 6.4.4

Screenshot below shows all modules needed for successful Hibernate ORM operation in OSGi (Apache Felix). Each module is installed in AEM as a separate bundle. All required OSGi dependencies for Hibernate are listed in Appendix 1.

If all dependencies are successfully installed and activated, hibernate-osgi bundle provides javax.persistence.spi.PersistenceProvider service which can be injected in your application to interact with your database.

Installation of the required Hibernate dependencies can be done in different ways in AEM.

  1. Classic approach is based on the package installation with Maven. All required bundles are embedded into a zip package with com.day.jcr.vault:content-package-maven-plugin and then installed in AEM via Package Manager. Example of POM.xml for Hibernate installation as a zip content package is located in Appendix 2.

  1. Another approach installs all bundles in predefined order with org.apache.sling:sling-maven-plugin called by Apache Maven Invoker API. Example of POM.xml and HibernateInstall.java for such installation can be found in Appendix 3.

3. Maven Application Dependencies

Example of Maven dependencies to enable Hibernate/JPA/MySQL integration in AEM:

<dependencies>
    ...
    <!-- Hibernate dependencies -->
    <dependency>
        <groupId>javax.persistence</groupId>
        <artifactId>javax.persistence-api</artifactId>
        <scope>provided</scope>
    </dependency>
    <dependency>
        <groupId>org.hibernate</groupId>
        <artifactId>hibernate-core</artifactId>
        <scope>provided</scope>
    </dependency>
    <dependency>
        <groupId>org.hibernate</groupId>
        <artifactId>hibernate-osgi</artifactId>
        <scope>provided</scope>
    </dependency>
    <dependency>
        <groupId>mysql</groupId>
        <artifactId>mysql-connector-java</artifactId>
        <scope>provided</scope>
    </dependency>
    <dependency>
        <groupId>com.day.commons</groupId>
        <artifactId>day.commons.datasource.poolservice</artifactId>
    </dependency>
</dependencies>

4. JPA/JDBC Properties Setup in AEM

Persistence properties for Hibernate ORM are loaded in two steps.

4.1. Loading of JPA persistence.xml

Path to persistence.xml is set in the bundle manifest configuration <Meta-Persistence> tag.

<build>
    <plugins>
         <plugin>
            <groupId>org.apache.felix</groupId>
            <artifactId>maven-bundle-plugin</artifactId>
            <extensions>true</extensions>
            <configuration>
                <instructions>
                    <Import-Package>
    	                 javax.persistence;version="2.2.0",
                         org.hibernate.proxy,
                         javassist.util.proxy,
                         *
                    </Import-Package>
                    <Meta-Persistence>META-INF/persistence.xml</Meta-Persistence>
                    ...
                </instructions>
            </configuration>
        </plugin>
    <plugins>
</build>

Required parameters:

  • name – title of the persistence-unit;
  • transaction-type – is set to RESOURCE_LOCAL as unmanaged JPA access is used to communicate with database via EntityManagerFactory;
  • class – list of Entity classes;
  • exclude-unlisted-classes = false so that Hibernate manages all Entity classes not defined in persistence.xml.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<persistence version="2.2"
             xmlns="http://xmlns.jcp.org/xml/ns/persistence"
             xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
             xsi:schemaLocation="http://xmlns.jcp.org/xml/ns/persistence
    http://xmlns.jcp.org/xml/ns/persistence/persistence_2_2.xsd">
    <persistence-unit name="softwerke-hibernate" transaction-type="RESOURCE_LOCAL">
        <provider>org.hibernate.jpa.HibernatePersistenceProvider</provider>
        <class>com.softwerke.integration.jpa.entity.EntityClassName</class>
        <exclude-unlisted-classes>false</exclude-unlisted-classes>
    </persistence-unit>
</persistence>

4.2. Loading of JDBC properties with AEM OSGi configuration

To make Hibernate/JPA properties manageable in runtime create OSGi configuration with corresponding JDBC connection properties needed to communicate with a database like MySQL:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<jcr:root xmlns:sling="http://sling.apache.org/jcr/sling/1.0" xmlns:jcr="http://www.jcp.org/jcr/1.0"
          jcr:primaryType="sling:OsgiConfig"
          hibernate.dialect="org.hibernate.dialect.MySQLDialect"
          hibernate.connection.driver_class="com.mysql.jdbc.Driver"
          hibernate.connection.url="jdbc:mysql//…"
          hibernate.show_sql="false"
          hibernate.format_sql="true"
          hibernate.connection.username="user"
          hibernate.connection.password="password"/>

5. AEM-Database Interaction via javax.persistence.EntityManager

Here is an example of a simple JPA transaction with Hibernate/JPA properties loaded from AEM OSGi configuration jpaEntityManagerConfiguration:

BundleContext context = thisBundle.getBundleContext();
ServiceReference serviceReference = context.getServiceReference(PersistenceProvider.class.getName());
PersistenceProvider persistenceProvider = (PersistenceProvider) context.getService(serviceReference);
entityManagerFactory = persistenceProvider.createEntityManagerFactory("softwerke-hibernate",
    JpaPersistenceProperties.getProperties(jpaEntityManagerConfiguration));
EntityManager entityManager = entityManagerFactory.createEntityManager();
EntityTransaction transaction = entityManager.getTransaction();
// SQL queries, transactions…

Here is an example of the bundle installation with Apache Maven Invoker API. Bundles are listed in the provided hibernate-bundles.xml file in <bundle> tags:

<bundles>
    <!-- Hibernate dependencies -->
    <bundle>byte-buddy-1.9.11.jar</bundle>
    ...
</bundles>

Path to XML file is set via second parameter of the exec-maven-plugin configuration.
