        If you attach an updated sample that reproduces the problem, I will take a look to see what's going wrong. I am inclined to think that there is still something wrong with your configuration. I would also suggest asking for help on the dpHibernate google group, since this seems to be specific to dpHibernate.

        I attached another sample project. I had to strip most of the libs and stuff to match the 10MB limit.

        to get it running first check out:

        Then import the dpHibernate_dpHibernateAdapter and dpHibernate_springExtensions-3.0 project from the "2.0" dpHibernate branch, overwrite the lazyoverflow files with the one from the zip file and the dependency settings of the project to match the imported projects and libraries.

        I could narrow it down to FlexContext.getServletContext(); returning "null" in SpringContextSerializerFactory.java line 110.

        Quick fix to this (staying compatible to the current implementation) was altering the code to look like the following:

        ServletContext servletContext = FlexContext.getServletContext();
        if(servletContext == null) // fix for Servlet Context must not be null exception during migration to Spring 3.0
        servletContext = FlexContext.getMessageBroker().getServletContext();
        context= WebApplicationContextUtils.getRequiredWebApplicationContext(servletContext);

        Don't know if I am doing something ugly here, but works for me.
