Latest commit 041c18b Sep 22, 2017 @mp911de mp911de committed with olivergierke DATACMNS-1170 - Fallback to default constructor discovery for Kotlin …
…classes without primary constructor.

We now fall back to default preferred constructor discovery if a Kotlin class has no primary constructor and no preferred constructor is resolved. Previously, primary constructor resolution yielded no result (returned null) which caused the subsequent Java constructor lookup to fail.

Original pull request: #244.


Spring Data Commons

Spring Data Commons is part of the umbrella Spring Data project that provides shared infrastructure across the Spring Data projects. It contains technology neutral repository interfaces as well as a metadata model for persisting Java classes.


  • Powerful Repository and custom object-mapping abstractions
  • Support for cross-store persistence
  • Dynamic query generation from query method names
  • Implementation domain base classes providing basic properties
  • Support for transparent auditing (created, last changed)
  • Possibility to integrate custom repository code
  • Easy Spring integration with custom namespace

Building the project


  • Maven 3
  • Java 8 (the project produces Java 6 compatible bytecode but partially integrates with Java 8)
$ git clone https://github.com/spring-projects/spring-data-commons.git
$ cd spring-data-commons
$ mvn clean install
