Thank you for the test model you have sent to us.

This XML was constructed basing on the model settings you have made in Entity Developer:

Code: Select all

<hibernate-mapping default-cascade="save-update" assembly="PM4.Model" namespace="PM4.Model" ...
    <EnumType Name="OperationType" IsFlags="True" UnderlyingType="SByte" class="OperationType" ...
    <EnumType Name="AccessType" IsFlags="True" UnderlyingType="SByte" class="AccessType, PM4.Model" ...
This is a designed behaviour.

NHibernate runtime will take model's assembly and namespace names and construct the following types for your enums:
  • class="PM4.Model.OperationType, PM4.Model"
  • class="PM4.Model.AccessType, PM4.Model"
If you want (for some reason) the full types in XML as well, set the Assembly and Namespace properties of the enum in Entity Developer.

Thanks for the reply and the only reason I got across this issue is because of a runtime error I got when coupling Envers into the project, that seems to be parsing the XML in such a way that it doesn't understand what assembly it has to look in by default.

I'll just set the assembly with all the enums, no problem.
