11.7.1. About Hibernate Envers
Hibernate Envers is an auditing and versioning system, providing JBoss EAP 6 with a means to track historical changes to persistent classes. Audit tables are created for entities annotated with
@Audited, which store the history of changes made to the entity. The data can then be retrieved and queried.
Envers allows developers to:
- audit all mappings defined by the JPA specification,
- audit all hibernate mappings that extend the JPA specification,
- audit entities mapped by or using the native Hibernate API
- log data for each revision using a revision entity, and
- query historical data.
