    Hello Adam,


    i think i've got a similar problem here: I created a class "Range" with subclass "RangeAggregate", InheritanceType is SingleTable.

    The base class references another (abstract) class CriterionTarget (@OneToMany):


    Range                    CriterionTargetAbstract

    @OneToMany <---> @ManyToOne


    I can create new instances of CriterionTarget that reference RangeAggregate (child class of Range), persist the new CriterionTarget and the Audit-Table for Range-Table is filled correctly.

    But when i delete a CriterionTarget (or just the reference to Range) that references a RangeAggregate (child class of Range) the Audit-Table for Range-Table always is filled with wrong value in @DiscriminatorColumn:


    The DiscriminatorColumn is always filled with the value of the parent class Range - but only on when deleting the reference between the two objects.

    This can be an update with null value for Range reference in CriterionTargetAbstract or a delete of CriterionTargetAbstract that still has a reference.


    Update: I tried to remove CustomRevisionEntity - no change. The only possible workaround i figured out is to set @NotAudited on both sides, but that's of course not what i want...


    Id did some debugging - but the initial configration (discriminator value in MetadataTools.createSubclassEntity) seems to be correct.

    Maybe someone can give me a hint where i have to look for reading of discriminator value when deleting a reference?



    Do you have any idea what could lead to this behaviour? Maybe it's because of my CustomRevisionEntity (i pasted the code here)?

    Hmm weird ... can you provide an Envers test case (as simple as possible), demonstrating the problem? It will be much easier then.

    Hi Adam,


    thanks for your reply. I'm @holiday for one week now and can't access the project.

    Do you have a link to a tutorial about how to write a test case?

    Adam Warski Master

    There's no tutorial, but I think just looking at one of the existing test cases will be pretty self-explanatory

    Hi Adam,


    it took some hours but finally i could reproduce the error in a test case

    I put the test case under org.hibernate.envers.test.integration.inheritance.single since i think the behaviour is affected by the @DiscriminatorColumn annotaion.


    TestCase is in ReferenceCreation.java


    Maybe you can have a look and tell me what's wrong. Thanks in advance.

    Great! Can you create a bug in JIRA and attach it there? Either me or Łukasz will take a look

    Hi Adam,


    created JIRA Ticket: https://hibernate.onjira.com/browse/HHH-7249

    Thx for the hint. I corrected the link above :-)
