Envers extension of the Spring Data JPA module
Latest commit 3ebae71 Jul 27, 2016 @olivergierke olivergierke committed with olivergierke #52 - After release cleanups.


Spring Data Envers

This project is an extension of the Spring Data JPA project to allow access to entity revisions managed by Hibernate Envers. The sources mostly originate from a contribution of Philipp Hügelmeyer @hygl.

The core feature of the module consists of an implementation of the RevisionRepository of Spring Data Commons.

public interface RevisionRepository<T, ID extends Serializable, N extends Number & Comparable<N>> {

    Revision<N, T> findLastChangeRevision(ID id);

    Revisions<N, T> findRevisions(ID id);

    Page<Revision<N, T>> findRevisions(ID id, Pageable pageable);

You can pull in this functionality to your repositories by simply additionally extending the interface just mentioned:

interface PersonRepository extends RevisionRepository<Person, Long, Integer>, CrudRepository<Person, Long> {

  // Your query methods go here

To successfully activate the Spring Data Envers repository factory use the Spring Data JPA repositories namespace element's factory-class attribute:

<jpa:repositories base-package="com.acme.repositories"
                  factory-class="….EnversRevisionRepositoryFactoryBean" />

If you're an Eclipse user make sure you activate automatic application of the formatter (located at etc/eclipse-formatter.xml) and activate automatic formatting and organizing imports on save.
