We are getting Hibernate warning "HHH000326: Cannot join transaction: do not override hibernate.transaction.factory_class" when using Springframework in EAP 6.

Solution Verified - Updated -


When migrating an existing application from EAP5 to EAP6.1, the following warning shows in the server.log

[org.hibernate.ejb.AbstractEntityManagerImpl] (http-/ HHH000326: Cannot join transaction: do not override hibernate.transaction.factory_class

The application uses SpringFramework 3 and Hibernate 4.

There's no any code making the explicit call


The application doesn't override hibernate.transaction.factory_class anywhere.

Why this warning message is still thrown?


  • JBoss Enterprise Application Platform(EAP) 6
  • Hibernate 4
