Based on the primary analysis I found that in version 5.2
ValueHandlerFactory and entire criteria package was moved to
For some of my internal work I needed some of
ValueHandlerFactory static classes and add few of my customized
valueHandler to convert my string to a specific type so that I don’t need to implement everything from scratch.
Question is when something is moved to a
internal package does it means that is not recommend to use/extend it or there is some other way I can use
org.hibernate.query.criteria.internal.ValueHandlerFactory and extend its functions?
