Subject [jira] Commented: (CXF-1642) CXF Bundle is missing an Import-Package for woodstox
Date Tue, 30 Mar 2010 21:58:27 GMT


Stepan Koltsov commented on CXF-1642:

I'm using CXF 2.2.7, I forgot to add woodstox to the classpath, and I got same problem (NAMESPACE_ERR).

> Indeed, the cxf-bundle do not import the 'com.ctc.wstx.sax' package, so we fall back
in the Exception handling, and CXF uses the default SAXParserFactory, which is provided by
> Just to be sure, I've added manually an Import-Package on 'com.ctc.wstx.sax', and provided
woodstox as a bundle, and everythings works better !
> I've only tested that on  2.0.6, but I've checked the Import-Package of the cxf-bundle
version 2.1 and there is still no import, so I guess the problem is there too.
> What I'm proposing is simply add an optional dependency on Woodstox, so that if it is
available, it will be used.

> BTW, I'm curious, how about normal users who are not using OSGi ? What happen if they
remove the woodstox.jar ? Will they have the same behavior than me ? If so, CXF has a real
dependency on woodstox, and it should not try to hide it using Class.forName ...
