Hibernate OGM

Version: 4.0.0.Beta1 - 3 October 2012


Hibernate OGM is an attempt to store data in a NoSQL data grid using the Hibernate ORM engine rather than rewriting a JPA engine from scratch.

The benefits are fairly obvious:

  • reimplementing the complex JPA specification is a lot of work
  • a new implementation would mature at a rather slow rate and risk of bugs would be high
  • Hibernate is familiar to many people

To build the project, run

mvn clean install -s settings-example.xml


To build the documentation, set the buildDocs property to true.

mvn clean install -DbuildDocs=true -s settings-example.xml

If you just want to build the documentation, run it from the hibernate-ogm-documentation/manual subdirectory.

For rapid documentation testing, you can limit the generated format to html to speed up the process

mvn clean install -DbuildDocs=true -s settings-example.xml -Djdocbook.format=html_single


If you have MongoDB installed on localhost and the default port, use the mongodb profile as well

mvn clean install -s settings-example.xml -Pmongodb

If you have MongoDB installed in a non default host / port, you can set the environment variables and then run the test suite

export MONGODB_HOSTNAME=mongodb-machine
export MONGODB_PORT=1234
mvn clean install -s settings-example.xml -Pmongodb
