Using third party JPA library with Hibernate, arquillian-persistence, and openejb-embedded-4

Is it possible to make Hibernate scan the Arquillian Archive for a JPA library?

When I run the unit test i see:

DEBUG - Processing PersistenceUnitInfo [
	name: ubcRegiDomain
	persistence provider classname: org.hibernate.ejb.HibernatePersistence

The archive is created thus:

    final File[] jpafiles = mavenResolver.resolve("ca.ubc.sis:ubc-regiJPA").withoutTransitivity().as(File.class);
    final WebArchive archive = ShrinkWrap.create(WebArchive.class, "test.war") //
            .addClasses(ArquillianDerbyTest.class, ArquillianDerbyTestInfo.class, DatabaseType.class) //
            .addAsLibraries(jpafiles ) //
            .addAsWebInfResource(new StringAsset(resourceString), "resources.xml") //
            .addAsWebInfResource(EmptyAsset.INSTANCE, "beans.xml") //
            .addAsWebInfResource("META-INF/" + databaseType + "-persistence.xml", "persistence.xml");

Hibernate obviously knows about the archive but it seems to insist to scan the actual file system for entities.

I kludged around it by exploding the jarFiles into the test-classes directory

        final File destinationDir = new File("target/test-classes");
        for (final File file : jpafiles) {
            final JavaArchive javaArchive = ShrinkWrap.createFromZipFile(JavaArchive.class, file);
  , "");

Any thoughts?



Any brilliant thoughts?

Hi @lindholm,

I think your persistence.xml is in wrong place (WEB-INF/META-INF), try putting it in META-INF:

war.addAsResource("META-INF/" + databaseType + "-persistence.xml", "META-INF/persistence.xml");

hope it helps.
