Subject [jira] [Created] (FLINK-2593) Revisit Flink's shading policy
Date Fri, 28 Aug 2015 14:00:51 GMT
Till Rohrmann created FLINK-2593:

             Summary: Revisit Flink's shading policy
                 Key: FLINK-2593
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-2593
             Project: Flink
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Till Rohrmann
            Priority: Minor

At the moment Flink does not follow a consistent shading policy which dictates which dependencies
should be shaded away and which to keep. This becomes especially important for utility libraries
which are likely to be used by the users as well. By not shading these dependencies, the user
is constrained to use exactly the same version in his code. This might cause problems for
the user.

Some of the dependencies which Flink should probably shade away are {{Akka}}, {{Protobuf}}
and {{Curator}}, for example.
