Spring Boot ORM - Maven EclipseLink


Advertisements

Spring Boot by default use Hibernate as ORM implementation. In order to use EclipseLink, we first need to exclude hibernate dependencies from spring-data-jpa dependency in pom.xml

<dependency>
   <groupId>org.springframework.boot</groupId>
   <artifactId>spring-boot-starter-data-jpa</artifactId>
   <exclusions>
      <exclusion>
         <groupId>org.hibernate</groupId>
         <artifactId>hibernate-entitymanager</artifactId>
      </exclusion>
      <exclusion>
         <groupId>org.hibernate</groupId>
         <artifactId>hibernate-core</artifactId>
      </exclusion>
   </exclusions>
</dependency>

Now include eclipse−link dependency in pom.xml.

<dependency>
   <groupId>org.eclipse.persistence</groupId>
   <artifactId>org.eclipse.persistence.jpa</artifactId>
   <version>2.7.8</version>
</dependency>

Following is the complete pom.xml

      </dependency>
      <dependency>

      </dependency>
      <dependency>
         <groupId>org.springframework.boot</groupId>
         <artifactId>spring-boot-starter-test</artifactId>
         <scope>test</scope>
      </dependency>
   </dependencies>
   <build>
      <plugins>
         <plugin>
            <groupId>org.springframework.boot</groupId>
            <artifactId>spring-boot-maven-plugin</artifactId>
         </plugin>
      </plugins>
   </build>
</project>

Save the file and eclipse will update the dependencies automatically.
