Does anyone knows why hibernate needs Serializable for composite-id?

"composite-id must implement Serializable"

EclipseLink does not need it when running on the same vm.


Does anyone knows why hibernate needs to overwrite equals/hashCode for compositeId?

EclipseLink does not need it when running on the same vm.


Should I go for EclipseLink in future?

Objects need to be Serializable in Hibernate so it will work in cluster and you can use whatever you like for second level caches (since these in turn may serialize stuff)

Have a read of this.

If these two features are the only requirements you looks for in a n ORM, I suppose so.

Okay, I sum up:

In Hibernate JPA2, I have to use for ALL my objects seriaziable not only for compositeID-Ojbects.

For example (Please correct me, if I am wrong):




The other thing is, according to http://community.jboss.org/wiki/EqualsandHashCode, it is a bad idea only using the ID-Fields of a Entity for equals/hashCode.


Thanks.

Yes.

As the article says, this is risky if you use detached collections. Otherwise, you are OK.

Is this statement 1 right?:
Performance does suffer if I implement Serializable in all my Entities without the need to transmit entities between different jvm.

Is this statement 2 right?:
Both in eclipselink and hibernate, I have to use Serializable when transmitting entity state from one layer (persistence layer) to another (view layer - for example, jsf) even it is in the same jvm.
