No Persistence provider for EntityManager named Hibernate error

No Persistence provider for EntityManager named

If you are working on hibernate, then there are two ways to provide the configuration to it. Either you would be using hibernate.cfg.xml or persistence.xml

In both cases, hibernate would be using the information like the connection string information and classes associated with tables.

If you are using persistence.xml and you are getting No Persistence provider for EntityManager named error, then there the following would be an issue and here is how you solve those.

apache error

Java Tomcat error: can not access a member of class with modifiers

Class org.apache.catalina.core.DefaultInstanceManager can not access a member of class with modifiers “” sun.reflect.Reflection.ensureMemberAccess(

If you are on tomcat/or anyother webserver for J2EE and getting this error, then the most probable servlet you have would look like this

package package;

import javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponse;

class MyServletClass extends HttpServlet {

The fix:

You have missed the class modifier public

public class MyServletClass

Should solve the problem

You asked to pull from the remote but did not specify the branch github error

asked to pull from remote but did not specify the branch github error

Mostly, you got a new repository or even existing one and you are trying to interact with it.

The above problem would be happening this time.

Git would allow you to have many branches of the same repository. So when you try to interact with the repository and you didn’t specify which branch then this would be the problem.

Because this is not the default configured remote
for your current branch, you must specify a branch on the command line

The tasks you are trying to do might be

git pull
git push or even others.


The first thing you want to do would be to check what branch you are in.

git branch

If you see master in there * master then do

git pull origin master

This would take care of the problem

Maven error Annotations are not supported in -source 1.3

The Error

Are you using annotations in your project?

If so, you will get this error if you try to do mvn compile or mvn install.

You may have also seen this if you are building your project on eclipse as well.

The solution

The default maven relies on JDK 1.3 for its building the project and you might be using a JDK above 1.3. Also, JDK 1.3 does not implement annotations.

The solution is to tell the maven the current non-1.3 JDK you are using on you pom.xml file.



For the source and target you will provide your current JDK you are using.

composer install-update killed on vagrant machine

These are also other stuffs going on:
composer update or composer install takes forever and the command line responds as killed

Specially this might happen on ordinary symfony application.Screen Shot 2016-04-10 at 8.16.40 PM

This is mostly, very very likely, related to memory issue.

Solution 1: perform your composer update or install on the host machine if possible.

This might not be possible in some scenarios if there are dependencies that rely on installed packages.

But, if that is not the problem, have on the host and the files would be sync’d anyway.Screen Shot 2016-04-10 at 8.07.07 PM

Solution 2: increase the memory on the provision file you have. I am using puphpet so, for that all you would have to do would be

cd /path/to/puphpet/
vim comfig.yml

then search for memory which by default be 512 and increase it at least to 1024 or better 2048 and that should solve the problem


To see the how much memory you have on your vagrant machine, ssh into your machine and

vagrant ssh
free -h

the free command would tell you how much memory you have and how is used.

error = MongoId not found in symfony application

I got the MongoId not found error on the the application I recently moved to remote server.
The app is working fine locally and the problem appears to happen on the remote one only.
The problem seems obvious, and I checked the mongo version I have locally vs the version I have on the remote – they are different

I have newer version of mongo installed on the remote server. And the doctrine orm handling my mongo objects was also older.
I updated my doctrie orm on composer as

 "doctrine/orm": "2.4.6",

This took care of the problem – at least for now 😉

Loaded Configuration File => (none) Apache not reading php.ini

php.ini is a core file to handle the behavior of PHP and sometimes apache might not pick it and php might not be using and it will create problem.

To resolve this, just see the output of phpinfo first.
Just add the following code snippet in the php file and run it through your server


Then look of configuration file (php.ini) path, by default it would be /etc
If you don’t have the file php.ini in that mentioned directory, just look for related ones like php.ini.default or something and just copy that as php.ini and restart your apache.

A new entity was found through the relationship doctrine error

Doctrine error: New Entity was found through relationship

This is typical problem of doctrine with joined relations.

How to use MySQL keyword as column in doctrine

And, to be specific, this would happen when trying to save an entity with relationship and the one being joined is fetched from memcached/redis or from other entity manager or you just populated it and not getting through Entity Manager

Solution to the doctrine error

Use the merge on EntityManager before you persist the object

Say you have an entity for pen and entity for color as well.. You want to save a new pen but you assigned a color from memcached object

$color = $this->memcacheGiveMeColor('blue');
$color = $em->merge($color)

Make sure you are using the object that is returned from merge!

If you are not reading from the memcached or other factory, and you are reading directly from Entity Manager then you wont have this error.
