I've managed to get my bundles to build without including the xerces jar 
in each of them.  Unfortunately, I'm building against one jar and 
executing using another.

Into my local maven repository, I installed the xerces 2.8.0 bundle that 
I found at http://bundles.osgi.org/Main/Repository.  I then tried to use 
the following dependency in my pom.xml.


This gave me a "package org.apache.xml.serialize does not exist" error.

The xerces 2.8.0 bundle doesn't directly contain any class files.  
Instead, it contains resolver.jar, xercesImpl.jar, and xml-apis.jar.  
Can maven not see into nested jar files?

If I use the following dependencies, I can build successfully but then 
I'm building against the xerces jar file from the ibiblio repository and 
not with the xerces bundle that I will be executing.


Is there a way to get around this problem?
