I’m working on an application for €€€ day job, and I want to use Quarkus because the plugins provide pretty good support for what I am wanting to achieve. The application is a CLI application that will merge the contents of two tenant databases (same schema) into one databse. For this functionality I want to write some unit tests (yeah, I know). To generate a test model and database schema I want to use JPA (Hibernate) to quickly create and fill the schema.

I put the JPA entities on the test class path:

src/test/java/banana/model/Tenant.java         <|-- Entity
src/test/java/banana/model/TenantAccount.java  <|-- Entity

Unfortunately when I start Quarkus in dev mode, Hibernate complains that it can’t find any entities, so it disables itself:

WARN  [io.qua.hib.orm.dep.HibernateOrmProcessor] (build-27) Hibernate ORM is disabled because no JPA entities were found

I tried googling for this, but couldn’t come up with an answer, so I asked the question on Stack Overflow, and within 30 minutes or so I got the answer:

Just put the io.quarkus:quarkus-hibernate-orm-panache dependency on the <scope>test</scope> scope, and everything will work as you intended.

And that works!
