NoSuchMethodError in javax.persistence.Table.indexes()[Ljavax/persistence/Index

I have a Play Framework application and I was using Hibernate 4.2.5.Final (which is retrieved via the Maven dependency manager). I decided to upgrade to Hibernate 4.3.0.Final, recompile my application successfully, and ran it.

I got the exception below, and haven't been able to figure out why. I downgraded back to 4.2.5 and this issue did not occur. I then, tried upgrading Hibernate with each Final release after 4.2.5. That is, I went from 4.2.5.Final to 4.2.6.Final, to 4.2.7.Final, to 4.2.8.Final and then to 4.3.Final. The issue does not occur until I upgrade to 4.3.0.Final.

Java version information

java version "1.7.0_45"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_45-b18)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.45-b08, mixed mode)


And exception:

Answer

I've ran into the same problem. The question here is that play-java-jpa artifact (javaJpa key in the build.sbt file) depends on a different version of the spec (version 2.0 -> "org.hibernate.javax.persistence" % "hibernate-jpa-2.0-api" % "1.0.1.Final").

When you added hibernate-entitymanager 4.3 this brought the newer spec (2.1) and a different factory provider for the entitymanager. Basically you ended up having both jars in the classpath as transitive dependencies.

Edit your build.sbt file like this and it will temporarily fix you problem until play releases a new version of the jpa plugin for the newer api dependency.

libraryDependencies ++= Seq(
javaJdbc,
javaJpa.exclude("org.hibernate.javax.persistence", "hibernate-jpa-2.0-api"),
"org.hibernate" % "hibernate-entitymanager" % "4.3.0.Final"
)

This is for play 2.2.x. In previous versions there were some differences in the build files.
