Subject Re: Felix/pax runner cyclic dependency issue - whats the common way to solve this?
Date Wed, 18 May 2011 17:09:16 GMT

Felix itself does not provide JTA packages, but the system bundle
exports plenty of javax.* (and non-javax) packages. The packages that
are exported are defined in Pax Runner Profiles:

JTA packages are exported in both the 1.5 and 1.6 profile. I don't
think that it's possible to remove only some of these packages. If you
really want to play with the set of system packages, you can override
Pax Runner's profile completely. This is what we did in our Pax Exam
based tests. It's also possible to do it when using pure Pax Runner or
the maven plugin. However, you'll probably need an external config
file for Pax Runner (and the 'args' parameter).

What you need to do is:
1) set  --ee to None
2) set the org.osgi.framework.executionenvironment property to
3) set system packages so that nearly the same set as the one
specified in the 1.5 profile is used; however JTA packages need to be
removed or somewhat "blocked for import"; you can "block" them using:
"javax.transaction; javax.transaction.xa; partial=true;
