VRaptor’s Plugins

Plugins are extensions that adds some feature to VRaptor core. It’s useful for some situations like access a database under JPA or Hibernate, to send e-mails and more.

VRaptor JPA

VRaptor plugin allow your app to inject EntityManager and EntityManagerFactory. And more: the plugin implements the Open EntityManager In View filter, that create a transaction when request starts and commits the transaction in the end. If an exception occurs, the plugin rollback the transaction for you.

If you want to use, you need only copy the jars for your app. Or if your project uses Maven, you need only to declare the plugin artifact as you can see below:

<dependency>
    <groupId>br.com.caelum.vraptor</groupId>
    <artifactId>vraptor-jpa</artifactId>
    <version>4.0.4</version>
</dependency>

It’s very important that your persistence unit is named default, and the persistence.xml located at src/main/resources/META-INF/ directory.

The plugin doesn’t delivery any provider. So you need to declare your prefered provider, like Hibernate.

<dependency>
    <groupId>org.hibernate</groupId>
    <artifactId>hibernate-entitymanager</artifactId>
    <version>4.3.0.Final</version> <!-- or another version compatible with JPA 2.1 -->
</dependency>

Or if you want to use Eclipselink:

<dependency>
    <groupId>org.eclipse.persistence</groupId>
    <artifactId>org.eclipse.persistence.jpa</artifactId>
    <version>2.5.1</version>
</dependency>
