Subject [jira] [Created] (GERONIMODEVTOOLS-781) slf4j version conflict
Date Wed, 11 Jan 2012 02:49:40 GMT
slf4j version conflict

                 Key: GERONIMODEVTOOLS-781
             Project: Geronimo-Devtools
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: eclipse-plugin
    Affects Versions: 3.0-beta-1
            Reporter: Jarek Gawor

I tired installing "Maven Integration for Eclipse" plugin via Eclipse Marketplace on Eclipse
3.6.2 Java EE with the GEP plugin and Rational OSGI tooling installed. The Maven plugin installed
fine but it failed to start. I tracked down the problem to a conflict in org.slf4j APIs. The
GEP runtime plugins export the org.slf4j.* APIs with the given Geronimo version. For example,
the GEP v3 runtime plugin exports org.slf4j.api with version 3. That confuses other plugins
in Eclipse and causes the Maven plugin not to start. 

I'm not sure 1) why we export the org.slf4j.* API out of GEP plugins in the first place and
2) if we need to export them why are we exporting them with the Geronimo version instead of
the actual SLF4J version.
