Using @PostLoad in a @MappedSuperclass does not work it the annotated method has the same name as in @Entity class.
I did not find any hints in the specs about the behavior in this case. Is it allowed?
The SuperClass ist part of another module than EntityClass.
As per Hibernate User Guide (https://docs.jboss.org/hibernate/orm/5.4/userguide/html_single/Hibernate_User_Guide.html#events-jpa-callbacks-example), it seems the expected feature.
If the method name is the same, it means the method is overridden. As per the user guide, super class’s method won’t be invoked.
As pointed out by , this works as expected
