Subject [jira] Commented: (JXPATH-138) jxpath 1.3 / mockrunner dependency
Date Tue, 01 Sep 2009 15:56:32 GMT


Sebb commented on JXPATH-138:

As far as I can tell, the dependency on MockRunner is for test scope only, i.e. it is not
needed at run-time.

So I don't see how this can be a blocker - seems to me more like an enhancement request.

updating to 1.3.
