Subject [jira] [Commented] (BEANUTILS-418) OSGi Manifest for BeanUtils should optionally import commons-collections
Date Mon, 11 Nov 2013 21:03:17 GMT


Oliver Heger commented on BEANUTILS-418:

Thomas, thanks for this hint. We should definitively replace FastHashMap sooner or later.

Unfortunately, the class appears in the public API of BeanUtils, so this can only be done
in a major release. There are also a couple of other classes from Commons Collections used
by BeanUtils. I guess, for the upcoming release the dependency cannot be dropped.

>          Issue Type: Bug

>         Environment: Any OSGi environment
>            Reporter: Matt Bishop
>            Priority: Minor
> The docs for BeanUtils clearly state that commons-collections is an optional dependency,
but when using Beanutils in OSGi this dependency is actually required. This is due to the
fact that the manifest requires the commons-collection packages rather than optionally requires
> Please change the import-package header to optionally import the commons collection classes.
