Why ? Hibernate uses a relaxed version of LGPL saying:

"Using Hibernate (by importing Hibernate's public interfaces in your
Java code), and extending Hibernate (by subclassing or implemention of
an extension interface) is considered by the authors of Hibernate to be
dynamic linking. Hence our interpretation of the LGPL is that the use of
the unmodified Hibernate source does not affect the license of your
application code." (see

Hence it is possible to issue code referencing Hibernate classes under
the Apache License.
