Hi everyone,

I am a master thesis student investigating the applicability of Autofetch-technology (see links) in real world scenarios. There is a tool developed for this in Hibernate. However, it seems like the tool is legacy (developed for version 3.1) and the systems that I'm going to use in the thesis are using newer versions of Hibernate (4.x and 5.x). So before I can start evaluating the method in real world scenarios, I need to somehow port the tool to the versions used in the projects that I will investigate in the study. Since I don't have any background developing in Hibernate I ask you instead. Is Hibernate backwards compatible with older tool versions? If no, how extensive would the work be to update the current tool into the newer versions of Hibernate?

If someone with experience could explain a little bit about this it would be highly appreciated.

For you who don't know about Autofetch:

The source code of the tool:

Have a great day everyone,

Hi Erik,

There are things that have changed since Hibernate 3.1 since we are talking about more than a decade of development on the framework.

If you follow the migration guides, it should be easy to port the tool to the latest Hibernate version.

I think it would be nice to have it on GitHub. I'd love to follow your progress on this topic.
