JPA configuration for play framework 2

Posted by Jens Jäger on November 19, 2013

In my current play project we decided to use hibernate as JPA implementation.

Here is the configuration we use:

Dependencies in project/Build.scala

Database configuration in conf/application.conf

Persistence unit in conf/META-INF/persistence.xml

    We run a play 1.x application using jpa/hibernate. We think about migration to 2.x sometime next year.
    It would be nice if you keep posting about your experiences with play 2.x and jpa (specially in contrast to the jpa implemenation in play 1.x, what are the main differences)
