Hibernate in GlassFish v2

GlassFish comes with TopLink Essentials as the default JPA implementation.

Eskatos has a working solution to replace it with Hibernate 3.3.1 GA. Thanks for sharing!

Hibernate validators and lucene integration are the two most frequently reasons to use Hibernate as the JPA implementation.

Eskatos also reports on IRC that joda-time/hibernate integration is another good reason. Of course, once you use these, your code becomes non-portable across JPA implementations and NetBeans’ Verifier (a portability tool based on the AVK) will report failures.
