Subject [jira] [Commented] (CXF-4278) Karaf features.xml for CXF wants to load EhCache for cxf-sts-ws and cxf-ws-security
Date Mon, 07 May 2012 06:54:23 GMT


Freeman Fang commented on CXF-4278:

Hi Scott,

Just want to clarify, installing higher version of ehcache won't prevent you to install lower
version of ehcache. Even though you have ehcache bundle from cxf features, let's say the version
is [2.5, ...), you still can install another ehcache bundle which version range meet the Hibernate
requirement, multiple version of same lib can co-exist in OSGi container is big benefit by
OSGi nature.

Back to this issue, yeah, I think we should remove ehcache bundle from cxf feature as it's
compile time necessary only, we may also need add version range for the optional import net.sf.ehcache(likely
[2.5.0, 3.0.0) in CXF to prevent it load some incompatible older net.sf.ehcache.

>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: OSGi
>    Affects Versions: 2.6, 2.6.1
>         Environment: Apache Karaf 2.2.6 + Felix OSGi Container

>            Assignee: Freeman Fang
>            Priority: Minor
> According to the [migration guide|]:
> {quote}
> EhCache is now a compile time dependency of the cxf-rt-ws-security module to support
caching and replay detection. It can be safely excluded downstream, at the expense of weakening
the caching support.
> {quote}
> If that is the case, then why force a user to load a specific version of EhCache in the
features.xml file for CXF? This breaks cases where, for instance, a user wants to use an EhCache
compatible with old-school Hibernate (3.3.2) which requires net.sf.ehcache;version=[1.2.3,
> Furthermore, it appears that there is no version bounding on the optional import of net.sf.ehcache
in cxf-ws-security, so theoretically, my already-loaded version of EhCache should work just
fine with CXF. :D
> Note: Setting this to a minor issue as it can be worked around by installing the features
with {{--no-clean}} in Karaf and then removing the EhCache provided by CXF's features.
