 Post subject: Hibernate Search-Index not created

i am currently writing my final dissertation in university with the topic of integrating search functionalities into an existing web application and want to use Hibernate Search.

But i am struggling with the indexing of entities in the already existing application.
It seems like the indexing is not working, because no index files are generated when i create a new entity. Also, the base index directory configured in the hibernate configuration is not created when i start the application.
The application uses the Spring Framework and Hibernate Core with hibernate-jpa 2.0 (see pom.xml).

I get no errors when executing the application, but there is an info concerning Hibernate Search:
INFO AnnotationSessionFactoryBean:780 - Building new Hibernate SessionFactory
INFO HibernateSearchEventListenerRegister:75 - Unable to find org.hibernate.search.event.FullTextIndexEventListener on the classpath. Hibernate Search is not enabled.

I read that i don´t need to integrate these listeners when using hibernate annotations, so this can´t be the source of the problem, right?

Extract from pom.xml






Extract from applicationContext.xml

I hope you can help me ,i am looking forward to your answers.

Kind regards,

The error means that the hibernate-search-orm.jar is not found at runtime. The dependencies which you are showing in your pom.xml are correct but they only show what is being used at compile time.
So how are you testing this? For example if you're copying your built application into a Tomcat container (or something similar) but are not including all Hibernate Search dependencies in there as well, you would have that warning message.

Another possibility is that you're using incompatible versions. I can see you're using Hibernate Search version 4.3.0.Final, but which version of Hibernate ORM are you using?
Hibernate Search 4.3.0.Final requires Hibernate ORM 4.2.2.Final.
