Subject [jira] [Commented] (CONFIGURATION-482) Optional dependencies are not marked optional in the manifest's Import-Package section
Date Sun, 20 May 2012 22:05:50 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CONFIGURATION-482?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13279881#comment-13279881
] 

Brian Topping commented on CONFIGURATION-482:
---------------------------------------------

This is kind of treacherous because jxpath has it's own set of rather undesirable dependencies
that need to get pulled in for closure on the otherwise optional / unnecessary jxpath dep.

Oliver, what can we do to help you set a fix version on this?  :)

> The following page lists the runtime dependencies based on the components. This is reflected
in the pom file since many are listed as optional (e.g. commons-jexl). However, if you want
to use commons-configuration in an OSGi container, those become required because the corresponding
packages are listed in the manifest's Import-Package section. They do not have the "resolution:=optional"
qualifier on it so you get an error if you do not include something like commons-jexl yourself.
