In this article we will see how to fix InvalidIsolationLevelException: Standard JPA does not support custom isolation levels - use a special JpaDialect for your JPA implementation.

The problem

As the exception clearly states, Standard JPA does not support custom isolation levels, so when we use an isolation level that is different from the default we will get the following exception:
