I'm new to Git, but not new to Databinder. I'm hoping, over the next few weeks, to grab the latest snapshot and ensure it works with the latest version of Hibernate - I tried to update awhile back and it didn't work out too well. Being new to Git, I'll be wondering how best to share these updates with the community?
And now, for the specific questions...
1. Is anyone else having troubles with later versions of Hibernate? Or are Databinder users all still working with hibernate-core 3.3.1.GA?
2. I see the Databinder maven repository has 1.3.0 as the latest build, but I see Git has 1.3.2-SNAPSHOT. Did anything happen in the middle there?
3. I'm hoping to enhance Hibernate(Object/List)Model to accept a Criteria object directly, instead of having to create a Serializable CriteriaBuilder. Seems like an obvious path to me, instead of creating CriteriaBuilders, so I'm wondering if there was a deliberate reason not to do it this way?
4. Is there a current bug tracking site for Databinder so that I may mine it for other improvement ideas?
Well, I managed to get Databinder 1.3.2-SNAPSHOT checked out using Git, modified it to support the latest version of hibernate (several instances of Integer needed to be changed to Number) and have it sitting in a public repository. I'm still going to make some dependency changes and remove a bunch of deprecated code, but it's now functional with Hibernate 3.6.4.Final.
The question is, what do I do now? I'd love to push these to the "public" repository, but that's more of an SVN term, no? Is Databinder dead? Are people using some alternative?
