Subject Re: [DISCUSS] 2.0 Release Criteria
Date Tue, 26 Jun 2007 12:47:54 GMT
Hello Donald,

Indeed, this is only for the Jetty assembly, and even for the jee5  
one as WADI is not enabled for the minimal one.

WADI does not depend on CXF. The problem is that the admin console  
uses Spring 2.0, which discovers NamespaceHandler implementations  
from specific resource files. A cxf JAR declares  
org.apache.cxf.clustering.spring.NamespaceHandler as a  
NamespaceHandler and this declaration is wrong. I believe this a  
problem with any Web-application using Spring 2.0. I will do a full  
build with a clean repo and see if it comes from me using an old  
version of a cxf JAR.
