There used to be a constructor CacheException(Exception) now there is CacheException(Throwable). This source compatible but not binary compatible. This is a problem if you use ehcache which is quite common. The latest ehcache 1.5.0 is compile against hibernate 3.2.1. Whenever, ehcache throws an exception it is lost because Java will throw a MethodNotFound exception when trying to create an instance of CacheException(Exception). Which of course means the real exception is lost and hibernate reports the MethodNotFound exception.
Please add an additional constructor CacheException(Exception).
In an effort to clean up, in bulk, tickets that are most likely out of date, we're transitioning all ORM 3 tickets to an "Awaiting Test Case" state. Please see http://in.relation.to/Bloggers/HibernateORMJIRAPoliciesAndCleanUpTactics for more information.
If this is still a legitimate bug in ORM 4, please provide either a test case that reproduces it or enough detail (entities, mappings, snippets, etc.) to show that it still fails on 4. If nothing is received within 3 months or so, we'll be automatically closing them.
Bulk rejecting stale issues. If this is still a legitimate issue on ORM 4, feel free to comment and attach a test case. I'll address responses case-by-case. Thanks!
