Exception: An entity got loaded even though it was not part of the EntityInfo list


while testing our project on Centos7 some integration tests failed with an exception:

no changes were done in the code. still running on Centos6 but fail on slave of Centos7


openjdk version "1.8.0_161"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_161-b14)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.161-b14, mixed mode)

Hi, it would be useful to know of any other environment changes.

For example I guess it might be running on a different JVM version?

openjdk version "1.8.0_161"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_161-b14)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.161-b14, mixed mode)

what else can help?
again, we didn't change anything else (like database, dependencies version etc.)
only the centos.

But is it the same openjdk build on both Centos versions ?

not exactly. in the previous we use:
openjdk version "1.8.0_151"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_151-b12)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.151-b12, mixed mode)

Hi ,

I see you are using Hibernate Search version 5.5, which is no longer actively maintained: it's 3 years old and we have released 5 new minor versions since its was first published (5.6, 5.7, 5.8, 5.9 and 5.10). This version is likely to contain bugs that have been resolved in a later version.

We can have a look and try to fix the issue, especially because it may also affect newer versions, but the fix will likely be merged into a more recent version only (5.6 is currently the oldest maintained series).

It would help if you could:

  1. Check that the problem is still present with the latest 5.5 (5.5.8.Final) and the latest version of Hibernate ORM you can use in Search 5.5 (ORM version 5.1.14.Final)

  2. If possible, upgrade to at least Hibernate Search 5.6.4.Final (5.10.0.Final would be better, but that's a lot more work since you'll need to upgrade ORM to 5.3, too) and check that the problem is still present.

  3. Try to reproduce the problem in a separate, simple test case. We have https://github.com/hibernate/hibernate-test-case-templates/tree/master/search/hibernate-search-lucene. If you need a template for version 5.5, you will have to go back in time to commit 0c7f43be477d9403973061f06e2e306dcacb32bd: https://github.com/hibernate/hibernate-test-case-templates/tree/0c7f43be477d9403973061f06e2e306dcacb32bd/search/hibernate-search-lucene

Thanks in advance,
