Liquibase Hibernate Plugin Does Not Work

As described here (https://github.com/liquibase/liquibase-hibernate/issues/74) I'm having an issue getting the liquibase-hibernate extension to work properly. I think I have everything setup, but it seems like I keep running into weird problems. I feel like I'm missing something simple, but I think I've followed all the instructions as provided.

I'm using liquibase 3.3.2, Hibernate 4.3.0.Final, java 1.7.0_71 and the liquibase-hibernate4-3.5.jar. My CLASSPATH environmental variable is empty, but some stuff gets added to it by the liquibase shell script. When I'm using normal liquibase commands interacting, and I remove the extension from $LIQUIBASE_HOME/lib/ directory without the extension it works just fine. I reran the commands with DEBUG output on to provide some more information.

$ echo $CLASSPATH


$ java -version
java version "1.7.0_71"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_71-b14)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.71-b01, mixed mode)

$ liquibase --version
Liquibase Version: 3.3.2

My liquibase.properties file

If I uncomment my referenceDriver I get this. Is there something I'm missing here? I thought I had all the required dependencies, and I'm not sure if this is some manifestation of the earlier problem where the extension could not load stuff properly.

After adding the hibernate jar to the liquibase/lib folder (which is really wrong) the error turned into this. I tried reverting to an older version of the plugin (while downgrading liquibase as well), and it did not help.

Answer Source

I got it working by adding these jars to my classpath. This is super confusing and not well documented. The process I went through was:

  1. Download the source for the correct plugin project found here (https://github.com/liquibase/liquibase-hibernate/releases) in my case it was liquibase-hibernate4-3.5.

  2. Run mvn dependency:copy-dependencies. This dumps them into /target/dependency/. Copy all these jars and put them into your LIQUIBASE_HOME/lib directory.

  3. I'm using gradle so I used a custom task to copy all my dependencies. If you're using maven you can use the same step from 2 on your own project to fetch all your depdenencies. I copied these libs from my output directory into the LIQUIBASE_HOME/lib directory.

    task copyToLib(type: Copy) {
        into "$buildDir/output/libs"
        from configurations.runtime
    }
    
  4. I also put the correct hibernate-liquibase-4.3.5.jar into the LIQUIBASE_HOME/lib directory.

That gave me all the dependencies I needed for the plugin.

This is a big nasty ball of mess, but what can you do :(
