Yes. This should work. I would use <hidden-classes> to avoid library version conflicts,
not inverse-classloading.

Not being familiar with the CXF JAX-RS implementation, I'm not sure if this would work. You
could assemble a server that includes the JAX-RS CXF jars in the CXF plugin. That would/should
avoid potential classloading issues. There may or may not be additional issues to be worked
