Hibernate error reporting

Sometimes, Hibernate is really bad at error reporting. Today I added a NOT NULL constraint to a column in my database and ran my unit tests. Several failed with errors like this:

I had made several changes since running the tests, so I had to think about what might be making a database call crash. Luckily, I was able to remember, but I have spent hours debugging these before. I wish the JDBC exception was floated to a higher point in the exception chain so it would be displayed. In this case, all I had to do was set a value for the fields that were no longer nullable.
