Subject: Re: Rampart transport binding integration tests?

I'm using Maven Eclipse plugin. Basically running "mvn eclipse:clean eclipse:eclipse" from
the root project then importing everything under /modules. Afterwards I switch the projects
to use Java 1.6 since I saw this is being used for the nightly build, while by default Maven
generates "J2SE-1.5" JRE container for them, at least on my side.

Actually, I just figured out a way to execute RampartTest integration test while keeping Rampart
core module using servlet api 2.3. What needs to be done is to exclude servlet api dependency
from all dependencies to other Rampart modules in Rampart integration module, then configure
the JUnit test runner in Eclipse to "only include exported entries", which means that it would
not include the classpath libraries of other projects, which are not explicitly marked as

This is a somehow hidden option in Eclipse that I did not know about, though I use Eclipse
extensively. I found out about it in the following blog post:

Also, I found a bug report in Eclipse for the same, apparently other developers already complained
that Eclipse JUnit runner is including all referenced projects' libraries in the run classpath:

All this means that I can change the patch and revert Rampart core module to use servlet api
2.3 and configure Rampart integration module to use 2.5. Still, I think that many people might
not know how to reconfigure their Eclipse and they will struggle with the duplicate servlet
jars and the exception that I mentioned before. I can do that if you think this the preferred

is the error I get

Last, any JAR file that contains Servlet API classes will be explicitly

All other class loaders in Tomcat follow the usual delegation pattern.

Do you use maven-eclipse-plugin or m2e to import Rampart into Eclipse?
